Gamethread: Gerrit Cole takes on Jose Fernandez

Dilip Vishwanat

Gerrit Cole and Jose Fernandez! This is one of the more exciting matchups of the year. Here's the lineup. Russell Martin is starting, but Tony Sanchez is in the clubhouse, so we may see a roster move before the game.

Starling Marte CF
Jose Tabata LF
Neil Walker 2B
Pedro Alvarez 3B
Russell Martin C
Garrett Jones RF
Gaby Sanchez 1B
Clint Barmes SS
Gerrit Cole P

A matchup against a pitcher as good as Fernandez doesn't seem like the right time to give Andrew McCutchen a day off. Then again, I'm not sure what the right time would be.
