As a lifelong Cubs fan...I hope not. My hope is that Q can pitch game 1 since he only threw 12 pitches yesterday. However, I have no idea how much he has thrown on the side. If Q throws game 1...it would set up Lester for 2 (I'm thinking 3 days rest is sufficient after he threw those few innings the other day), then you can have Hendricks for 3 and Arrieta for 4, both on normal rest. I just don't have a good feeling about Lackey vs Kershaw for game 1. Having said all that, it won't shock me if Maddon goes with Lackey.
