Cubs’ starters for the final series

Cubs’ manager Lou Pinella has set his rotation for the remainder of the year…and the Brew Crew will face neither ace Carlos Zambrano nor #2 starter Rich Harden, as Pinella is opting to rest both for the NLDS. The Cubs will send RHP Ryan Dempster (17-6, 2.99) on Friday, LHP Ted Lilly (16-9, 4.17) on Saturday, and RHP Jason Marquis (11-9, 4.43) for the regular season finale on Sunday.
Obviously, having the Cubs’ send their best two starters out against the Mets–the team the Brewers currently trail by one game in the NL Wild Card race–and not out against the Brewers works in the Brewers’ favor; Dempster is formidable…but, fortunately, he won’t be on the hill for the finale should the Brewers take the Wild Card race down to the wire.
