Neutered considerably by the steady stream of early-arrivals in Mesa, Arizona over the past few weeks, today’s nominal deadline for Chicago Cubs pitchers and catchers to report to Spring Training is little more than a honorary date. It doesn’t really mean too much, since guys have been practicing all week, and we’ve already been enjoying it.
But, as I sit here this morning, I can’t help myself … I still get excited.
CUBS PITCHERS AND CATCHERS REPORT TODAY! CUBS SPRING TRAINING IS UNDERWAY!!!
