Giants vs. Cubs, Starting Lineup Preview: Wet Weather Threatens Today's Game at Wrigley

The San Francisco Giants lineup card is as much a game of musical chairs as it is 9 players taking the field, and today is no different. Skipper Bruce Bochy is rolling out the majority of his veteran players today against the Chicago Cubs, though if the wet weather in the Windy City continues there might not be a game today at all.

Wunderground.com shows a 90% chance of precipitation and possible thunderstorms. Here’s a picture via the Giants twitter feed of Wrigley before the game, notice the large puddle already accumulated on the tarp over the infield.

But as for the lineup, Aaron Rowand will be in center field and back in the lead off spot as Andres Torres will get the day off despite his 7-15 start with 2 walks since coming off the DL. Miguel Tejada will be back at shortstop after Mike Fontenot’s rough hitting day yesterday, and Mark DeRosa will be at third.

1. Aaron Rowand CF
2. Freddy Sanchez 2B
