Which lineup would win more games? Weigh in now Twitter and Facebook!

The Cubs’ hitters lack depth in their lineup and have a number of soft spots due to their rookies and inexperienced starters, where as the Cubs pitching staff could be just one impact player away from being a legit lineup. If only they had a guy like Marco Estrada, of the Milwaukee Brewers, (28 HR against) or John Danks, of the Chicago White Sox, (23 HR against) to anchor their lineup. But on the plus side, Edwin Jackson and Travis Wood rank first and second in the league in on base percentage against; can’t get much better than that!
