Kerry Wood might have hijacked the newscycle as the crosstown series begins Friday at Wrigley Field, but the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox still have three games to play. Both teams just released their lineups, with few surprises on either side.

The White Sox will play Adam Dunn -- the team's everyday DH -- in left field. Dunn has a reputation as a Cubs killer dating back to his days as a member of the Cincinnati Reds, though he's also known as a pretty terrible defensive outfielder. Should make for some good TV.
