Some great innings from the Cubs’ relievers and a whole bunch of hits helped carry the day.
Month: February 2013
It’s Spring Game number six for the Cubs, and it’s Scott Feldman’s debut.

The familiar logo could be getting a new look, and Wrigley Field could be getting a big, new video board in left field as soon as 2014.
Our son is here, and I’m a happy pappy. Also: Starlin Castro is feeling fine, Matt Garza could throw today, and Javier Baez is a lethal weapon.
He pulled up lame while running out a grounder. The Cubs are calling it “hamstring tightness” for now.
We’re off to the hospital, so I’ll see you again soon. Feel free to post anything Cubs-related in the comments in the interim.
Are the Cubs doing themselves a disservice by not pushing Soriano out the door as soon as possible?
More candid analysis from the Chicago Cubs’ President of Baseball Operations.
The Cubs are 3-1 on the Spring now, which is neato burrito.
Compare the Cubs’ rotational rebuilding efforts to that of the Royals. The Cubs did pretty well, especially in the long-term.
It’s game number four on the Spring, and two of the best teams from 2012 square off on the pitch.
If he can pitch in the next few days, Dale Sveum doesn’t see a reason why Garza couldn’t be ready by Opening Day.
But that means 100 to 110 games behind the plate. Dioner Navarro is a capable backup, though.
Finally, a little update on Vizcaino’s progress recovering from Tommy John surgery.
Good think Spring records don’t count, AMIRITE?
It’s Spring game number three for the Cubs, who head over to Camelback Ranch.
Soriano would prefer to see how the Cubs do in the first couple months before he considers a trade, but the time might be now.
One of the Cubs’ top prospects turns 21 today, and he’s getting mightily pumped up by those who’ve seen him this Spring.
His week of rest is up, but he still feels something “annoying” in his lat.
And the Cubs have two prospects in the top 20.
It hasn’t been his best spot in the lineup, but it probably makes the most sense.
Hooray, 2-0! Or something like that.
Would Soriano even accept a trade to the Yankees if such an opportunity arose?
It’s Spring Game Number Two, and it’s the home opener for the Cubs. The last home opener at HoHoKam Park.
If the flashes Jackson has shown so far this year – and it’s waaaay early – are indicative of his swing change, things could be looking up.
Awwww, yeeeee-ah. Time for irrational exuberance.
