Game Thread -27: Cubs (5-6) at Brewers (4-3-1)

We're only narrowly hanging on to first place among NL Central teams playing in the Cactus League, so I don't think I need to tell you just how important today's game is.  Yes, Mike DiFelice is playing for Team Italy, but sometimes you just have to grit your teeth and play through the pain.

Cap'n McCalvy has the lineup:

Rickie Weeks - 2B
Chris Duffy - LF
J.J. Hardy - SS
Prince Fielder - 1B
Corey Hart - RF
Mike Cameron - CF
Mike Lamb - 3B
Jason Kendall - C
Jeff Suppan - RHP

The other scheduled pitchers are Villanueva, Swindle, Narveson, and Wright.  Some people with bears on their shirts will play for the other team.

Adam also reports that Todd Coffey's wife has given birth.  I would make a joke, but it would be too obvious, and too lame.

Game time is 2:05 CT.
