Not to proclaim myself Nostradamus or anything, but when I predicted yesterday that pitchers Randy Wells and Kevin Hart had just seen their last days in big league camp, I was right on the money. I’m Nostradamus.

The Cubs got their roster down to 30 today. They optioned pitchers Randy Wells and Kevin Hart to Iowa. Sent to minor-league camp were catcher Mark Johnson, infielders Andres Blanco and Esteban German and outfielders Brad Snyder and So Taguchi. DailyHerald.com.

German is a bit of a surprise given that the Cubs still do not have a viable second option off the bench for the infield behind Aaron Miles. Snyder had already been given the boot a few days ago when he was de-rostered. So this was a nice little extra kick in the crotch.
