Lou’s tagged Mike Fontenot as his starting 2B, which comes as no surprise.
But where do the Cubs turn if Fontenot craps the bed again?
Most likely Jeff Baker who’s defense is on par with Fontenot’s, but he’s far less the hitter.
I wouldn’t mind, however, seeing Andres Blanco get a shot. Everyone knows the guy doesn’t hit, but he’s a Gold Glove fielder.
Given the Cubs’ bullpen situation, preventing a run may be more important than driving one in, and Blanco does that better than Fontenot and Baker combined.
