Our first look at the Cubs in 2005, and Austin Kearns will be watching from the bench. I don't really have a problem with getting him in the lineup, but how about giving Sean Casey a day off? He's struggling every bit as much as Kearns, Dunn, or Junior but he's played every game so far. A minor gripe to be sure, but still a head scratcher.
