18:20: The Dusty Baker Show.

21:40: L.A.'s Leftorium.

* A date with the Dodgers:

The biggest difference between the teams comes against left-handed pitching. The Dodgers ranked last in baseball with a woeful .214 batting average and a .623 OPS against lefties while the Cubs' .807 OPS ranked second. That discrepancy might mean adding a bullpen arm from the left side for the Cubs as Joe Maddon indicated rookie Rob Zastryzny could be in play as he impressed in his one month in the big leagues compiling a 1.12 ERA in 16 big league innings. He would join Travis Wood, Mike Montgomery and Aroldis Chapman as lefties in the bullpen if the Cubs so desire. Jon Lester is the lone lefty starter and will take the ball in Game 1.
