It’s a meaningless game, but it’s always nice to beat the White Sox.
Today the Chicago Cubs head out to Camelback Ranch to take on the White Sox for Spring Training game six
The Cubs send four young players out to minor league camp.
Who does what? Who decides what? How do the two divide duties?
The former Cubs’ third baseman doesn’t think things will be easy for Epstein, and thinks Brenly should take a look at his own stats.
Tickets may be a little easier to come by this year. Dale Sveum continues to crush on Jeff Samardzija, Chris Volstad is ready for a fight, and the Cubs are figuring out the bullpen.
The Cubs’ offense didn’t do much, and the bullpenners gave up plenty of runs. That usually equals a blowout.
Spring Training game number five, as the Cubs host the Mariners.
With Jason Jaramillo battling a quad injury, Welington Castillo and Steve Clevenger may be the only real back-up candidates.
For now, it’s rotation or bust for Samardzija. Bryan LaHair is preparing differently, Kyle Smit is gone, and Starlin Castro digs Junior Lake.
A game of telephone has the Cubs signing Soler soon, purple monkey dishwasher. (UPDATE – One report has now corrected itself.)
So, about that Jeff Samardzija start…
Spring Training game number four, as the Cubs head out to take on the Royals.
Leaving the Rockies probably wasn’t Stewart’s first choice, but that doesn’t mean he can’t be happy about how things worked out. The same is true of us.
Brett Jackson will be playing every day, wherever he starts the 2012 season.
Ellsbury isn’t even a free agent until 2014. Thoughts on the PTBNL going to the Red Sox, Sveum is out of the bunt tourney, rooting for Jeff Samardzija, and Tyler Colvin wants revenge.
The streak is over! The Cubs won’t go 0-fer Spring Training! All is right with the world.
Spring Training game number three, as the Cubs host the Rockies.
The payroll comes in at somewhere around $110 to $112 million, but the on-field figure for the 25-man roster is much lower.
