The Cubs split their split squad action today.
The Reds’ second baseman has become quite a treasure for outside observers.
McDonald and Jackson draw the starts, and many prospects are sprinkled into the starting lineups.
A new analysis over at Beyond the Box Score says the Cubs were the least effective shifting team in baseball. By a lot.
Do the Cubs really want Mike Olt to win the third base job out of Spring Training? Well, I mean, probably.
Online and on the phone, if you want to grab any of the harder-to-get tickets.
It’s easy to see why he’s getting the attention and hype, but we’ve got to remember: he’ll still need time.
Eloy Jimenez is huge, Juan Paniagua is present, and Gerardo Concepcion is still in the organization. Much more.
Pitchers duel! Featuring lots of pitchers!
A couple of interesting positional starters today.
Arrieta is feeling good after throwing off the mound, and Russell isn’t worried about his dead arm.
Tom Ricketts recently spoke about the former Cubs star. Is it finally time to mend fences? Is there some value there?
There isn’t a main Bullet today, as far as I can tell. Just a lot of players to discuss.
Baez and Kottaras went deep, but the Cubs gave away a few too many runs.
If you wanted to see Javier Baez blast one against the Rockies today, you’re in luck.
I’ll be back at Cubs Park today, and Javier Baez is back in the lineup.
Kyle Hendricks has the best command in the minors.
The Reds didn’t sell as many season tickets as they would have liked … because of negative media coverage?
Masterson is reportedly seeking only three or four years, and $40 to $60 million in an extension.
Don’t spoil the annual feast, Cubs fans. That is to say: there won’t be anything given that stands in the way of the greater goal.
Justin Ruggiano and Mike Olt each hit two-run homers.
I’ll be there checking out Cubs Park for the first time.
Things look bright for the Cubs, but maybe not bright enough, relatively-speaking.
The race typically takes place in August, but won’t be happening this year.
I can only assume his duties will include “being a badass.”
Interesting, given that the Cubs have plenty of other options to cover shortstop.
