I don't claim to be the smartest guy in the world, but my thinking is that in a National League game you need to have good bats off the bench, so I would make my starting line-up with the best defensive player at each position.

Lofton-CF
Harris-2B (Hey, why not?)
Ordonez-RF
Konerko-1B
Valentin-3B
Rowand-LF
Johnson-C
Clayton-SS
Garland-P


That would have us looking good in the field, and it leaves our bench pretty strong.

What would you do?????

In NL games, it is important to have good bats on the bench, but it is more important to have good bats in the line-up, getting the ABs. I'd go with:

Lofton-CF
Graffanino-3B
Ordonez-RF
Konerko-1B
Valentin-SS
Liefer-LF
Durham-2B
MJ-C
Garland-P

With the pitcher batting and Sandy out, I am not sure the O could afford to have Royce in the lineup.

I think they'd be crazy to play Harris instead of Durham. Too big a series, too much intensity to throw Harris in there as his first White Sox start. PLUS, as inconsistent as Ray has been this year, he absolutely thrives against the Cubs every year. He's one of our guys who really gets geared up for this series and has, historically, performed really well against them.
