Giants vs. Cubs, Lineup Preview: More Changes For the Giants in the Windy City

San Francisco Giants skipper Bruce Bochy’s lineup cards are like snowflakes, no two are ever the same. And today is no different as the G-Men are set to take on the Chicago Cubs.

Mike Fontenot will be back at shortstop to take on his former team, moving Miguel Tejada back to third and Mark DeRosa back to the pine. Buster Posey is back behind the dish after his day off yesterday, while Nate Schierholtz has earned himself another start after his great day yesterday.

According to Andrew Baggarly via twitter, Bochy talked to his outfielders about how the series is going to go down, and that Pat Burrell will start tomorrow against Doug Davies for the Cubs. Burrell apparently hasn’t been not too enthused will his diminished role as of late, but will have to pick up his play to get some more playing time.
