Ties are one of those things that makes Spring Training (and 2002 All-Star Games) so special.

It’s Spring game 32 for the Cubs, who host the Los Angeles Pujolses.
That’s the day before Opening Day. Dale Sveum loves his rotation, Tony Campana is bummed, Joe Mather is stoked, and Larry Lucchino loves stirring the pot.
The Cubs, armed with their best lineup, lost to a split Dodgers squad today. It’s just Spring Training, right?
It’s Spring game 31 for the Chicago Cubs, and Dale Sveum shows off the probable Opening Day lineup.
Jed Hoyer and Jeff Samardzija are certain we’ll see plenty of Randy Wells in Chicago this year. But that doesn’t mean Randy isn’t bummed.
The last group of Chicago Cubs prospects gets a preview, and the group is so deep, they can’t even all be mentioned.
Coming up with 9 starters is pretty easy right now. Jeff Samardzija is thrilled, the Braves are interested in “lesser available Cubs,” and the Theo comp stuff just won’t go away.
It was a bat-heavy day for the Cubs and Padres, but the Padres came out on top.
It’s Spring game 30 for the Chicago Cubs, who head to Peoria to take on the Padres.
A number of players were sent out today, including a couple surprises. The bullpen remains the biggest unresolved piece of the puzzle.
19-year-old first baseman, Jair Bogaerts.
That was pretty unexpected. The first part, I mean. (Updated to reference a few other moves.)
The primary piece of Theo compensation has to have bone spurs removed from his elbow.
But does it mean anything? Darwin Barney has the front office’s support, David DeJesus is working hard, and Jeff Samardzija stopped cruising.
