Via MLB.com's Scott Merkin, here's Robin Ventura's first major-league lineup card:
So Brent Morel is the Opening Day No. 2 hitter, with Adam Dunn hitting third. No surprises there -- having A.J. Pierzynski hit second would mean three lefties would hit in a row, which would get to be a problem late in games against left-handed relievers.
And Ventura passed his first test: All the names are spelled correctly. Now let's play ball tomorrow.
Hub Arkush (670 The Score/Pro Football Weekly), David Schuster (670 The Score) and Patrick Finley join Kap on the panel. Tim Raines finally gets the call from the Hall along with Jeff Bagwell and Pudge Rodriguez. So when will Bonds and Clemens get in? Why are Sammy Sosa’s vote totals dropping? The guys debate from former Cub David DeJesus joins the panel to talk Hall of Fame and the 2017 Cubs.
The Bulls lose to a bad Mavericks team. When will GarPax blow it up and start over?
Plus the guys discuss whether or not Antonio Brown will distract the Steelers and if the Falcons defense is the x-factor in the NFC title game.
