After the official rotation was released and discussed, today is the day that Dale Sveum has announced what the official Opening Day lineup should be, barring injury, according to the Chicago Tribune.
While a lot of stock can be put into things like lineup order as well as spring training production, taking these facts with a grain of salt is putting it lightly.
Promptly pour the entire salt shaker into your mouth.
Spring training statistics don't hold a bucket of water next to the ocean of the season. While it may be nice that guys like Joe Mather produced like Albert Pujols injected with super-soldier serum, it has virtually no bearing on what the season brings for him.
Take that exactly the same way for those who struggled, like David DeJesus. It has no weight on anything that is coming in the next few weeks and over the next few months.
We'll all forget very quickly about what happened during these pre-season festivities like we do every year.
Lord knows I'm excited to get past the spring shenanigans and get the season started, regardless of the expectations. Baseball season is here, and let's see what the Cubs will be bringing to the plate this season.
