Rich Harden hasn’t made it into a Chicago Cubs Spring Training game yet, but that’s not yet a concern. Among rational people, anyway.

The good news is Harden is pitching off the mound, and he faced hitters in batting practice this weekend, and he’s scheduled to do it again today.

Pitching coach Larry Rothschild said Rich Harden was fine a day after throwing batting practice and is scheduled to throw another BP session Tuesday. That could put Harden close to being scheduled for his first Cactus League game. CHICAGO SUN-TIMES.

Raise your hand if you care whether or not Rich Harden throws in a Spring Training game this year. That’s what I thought.

And you don’t count, Donny.
