This is it, folks. Get your guesses in today, lest you be left out in the cold when prize time rolls around.

Ricketts notes that the Chicago Cubs’ stadium situation is unlike any other in baseball, and appears to be drumming up support for a renewed public funding effort.
It’s still a problem, apparently. The Cubs might make Randy Wells available, Carlos Marmol is OK (health-wise), and Cubs players aren’t ranking well.
That’d be one loss and one tie for the day.
Spring games 20 and 21 have the Cubs taking on the A’s and Rangers today.
An early look at some of the Cubs’ corner outfield prospects you’ll want to watch this year and beyond.
Dale Sveum says Joe Mather pretty much has a job on the Cubs’ bench, which rounds out the five-spot crew.
He could still become a net positive at second base. Randy Wells was so-so yesterday, the back-up catcher battle is murky, and the 2012 Houston Astros will probably suck.
The Cubs scored early and late, and took down the Mariners handily.
It’s game 19 on the Spring for the Chicago Cubs, who face the Mariners in Peoria. Travis Wood gets the start.
Dale Sveum continues to talk up Samardzija, and it has become very difficult to see him not making the rotation at this point.
Why haven’t you entered the contest yet? Do you hate fun and free money?
The All-Star second baseman could be out for a while, and the Phillies might be scrambling for a fill-in.
The Cubs’ top drafting and player development guy is already killing it in preparation for the June Draft.
That’s never really true, but a tough decision looms. Tony Campana is relieved, Ian Stewart is almost back, and Rafael Dolis is probably in.
The Cubs split their split squad games today, beating the Rangers 3-2, and losing to the White Sox 7-5.
The Cubs will try to stop a six-game losing streak with a game in Las Vegas against the Rangers, and another in Mesa against the White Sox.
