Only Carlos Marmol and Kerry Wood are locked in. The Peoria Chiefs are likely staying with the Cubs, the over/under on Cubs wins is 72.5, and Brett Jackson thinks Reed Johnson is awesome.
Month: March 2012
The Cubs lost both of their split squad games today, 7-5 to the Rockies, and 12-2 to the Diamondbacks.
The 21-year-old relief prospect was highly effective at High A last year.
It’s Spring games 12 and 13, as the Cubs take on the Diamondbacks and Rockies in split squad games.
The Cubs sent out six prospects today, as well as back-up catcher candidate, Jason Jaramillo.
Chris Volstad, Jeff Samardzija, Randy Wells, Travis Wood, and Rodrigo Lopez are all still battling for just two spots in the Chicago Cubs’ 2012 rotation (at least, to start the year).
The owner in South Bend would like to get the Cubs to come to town.
Dale Sveum has to be getting tired of the question (get used to it, Dale). Sveum tells Carlos Marmol to relax, Jeff Beliveau hopes for a spot, and why the 2012 Reds will suck.
The Brewers laid the Cubs out today, primarily by beating down Travis Wood and Casey Coleman.
It’s Spring Training game 11, and the Cubs welcome the Milwaukee Brewers to Hohokam Park.
You’re not shocked. But you might be horrified.
Actually, we probably shouldn’t. Dale Sveum isn’t.
Dale Sveum isn’t close to ready to toss LaHair aside. More on the Theo Epstein PTBNL, on Joe Mather’s spot with the team, and on the Cubs’ third Spring cuts.
The Cubs win another one, and are clearly on their way to the Spring Training playoffs.
It’s Spring Training game 10, and the Cubs head out to Scottsdale to take on the San Francisco Giants.
Guess the Cubs’ Opening Day lineup (and rotation), and you can win $75 to Sports World Chicago, where you can load up on Cubs gear.
So far this Spring, Alfonso Soriano is destroying all comers. But what does it mean, if anything?
With the move, the 40-man roster now stands at 39.
The new Chicago Cubs manager isn’t into reading about himself, and isn’t too worried about facing the pressure of a large market.
Tons of bullets today. Dusty, Shark, Maholm, Lake, Castro, Jackson, Rizzo, Goldstein, Lopez, Miller, Sveum, and on and on…
The Cubs took a lead early, lost the lead, um, middly, and then took the lead back late.
It’s Spring Training game nine for the Chicago Cubs, and they’re headed “home” to take on the Reds.
No one believes the Cubs will be alone in pursuing Jorge Soler, but apparently a number of folks (and MLB teams) believe the Cubs will get the job done.
Shocker: Jed Hoyer is happy to have Concepcion in the fold.
A starter for all of his career, Coleman can crank it up when he’s coming out of the pen.
The Cubs’ ace has struggled in the Spring, but he’s got an explanation. The Cubs will own the inside of the plate, Jed Hoyer digs the Spring vibe, and the Bunt Tourney Final Four is set.
