camelback ranch white soxFortunately SIGNING ALL THE PLAYERS doesn’t help you win in Spring Training. Well, actually, it does. But, fortunately, it doesn’t matter.

Which is to say the Cubs take on the mighty, wealthy (and mighty wealthy) Dodgers today at Camelback Ranch, which is also the Spring home of the White Sox. Carlos Villanueva makes his debut for the Cubs, and he gets the start.

Luis Valbuena gets a chance to show what he can do at second base, with Darwin Barney taking on the DH role today. Valbuena is already a mortal lock for the roster, but I’d imagine the Cubs want some chances to see some additional work at positions other than third base.
