It’s a split for the Cubs today, who took down the Padres, but lost to the Diamondbacks.
Month: March 2012
It’s Spring games 26 and 27 for the Chicago Cubs, who could theoretically pull up to .500 today on the Spring.
The series taking a look at the Chicago Cubs’ top prospects at each position continues with second base.
It’s easy to see why when you ponder the regulars he’s got to work with.
Except that he’s clearly not. So, when he says the Cubs’ unique schedule wears players down, I believe him.
The Cardinals have released Koyie Hill back into the wild. Andy Sonnanstine is a free agent, Ryan Flaherty probably isn’t coming back, and Kerry Wood and Carlos Marmol will pitch again soon.
Solid all-around today, and the Cubs win their 11th game of the Spring.
It’s Spring game 25 for the Chicago Cubs, who head to Goodyear Park to take on the Indians.
Dale Sveum said Volstad was in, and then back-tracked a bit. Jeff Samardzija is still learning, Marcos Mateo and Kerry Wood are hurting, and day games are not a problem.
The Cubs lost, but I enjoyed a nice day at Hohokam Park.
It’s Spring game 24, and the Cubs welcome the San Diego Padres to Hohokam. I’d argue that I’m the more important visitor today, but whatever.
Dale Sveum announced three-fifths of the rotation, notes Rafael Dolis is probably in the pen, and loves on Brett Jackson.
The Cubs win another one, outslugging the Rockies. So what if Jeff Samardzija was very, very hittable…
It’s Spring game 23, as the Cubs head out to take on the Rockies.
The Cubs’ top prospects officially head out from big camp, and we’ll hopefully see them again mid-season.
A look at the top catching prospects in the Chicago Cubs’ farm system. How do you decide between Welington Castillo and Steve Clevenger?
It’ll be Ryan Dempster or Matt Garza. At least one starting pitcher candidate is headed to the bullpen, Marcos Mateo is having his arm looked at, and lots of prospect talk.
The Cubs’ offense blew up today, taking down the Rangers big.
It’s Spring game 22, and the Cubs head out to Surprise to take on the Rangers. Again. Seriously, the Rangers are the only team the Cubs play this Spring.
A look at the top first base prospects in the Chicago Cubs’ farm system to start 2012, and I think you know who’s on top.
With some depth in the rotation and the usual uptick in smaller-deal chatter at the end of Spring Training, there could be some moves on the way.
Jorge Soler is no Bigfoot (well, except that he is impressively large and athletic-looking). He’s as real as you or me.
The baseball ops department is much bigger now than it was last year. Jed Hoyer speaks on all manner of things, including Spring records, Jeff Samardzija, and Bryan LaHair.
As firmly as he possibly can, Jed Hoyer wants to disabuse folks of the notion that the Cubs have a deal in place with the Cuban prospect.
Taking a look at one of the Cubs’ deeper talent pools, and noting a handful of the kids you’ll want to keep an eye on in 2012.
This is it, folks. Get your guesses in today, lest you be left out in the cold when prize time rolls around.
