Solid all-around today, and the Cubs win their 11th game of the Spring.
Archive for March, 2012
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.
