Six opportunities to catch the Cubs on TV, and 30 total opportunities to watch or listen in total.
Cespedes hits his first DWL home run, and the overreactions swing in the other direction. Cespedes is being recruited, Sarah Spain is doing interviews, and Javier Baez is earning accolades.
Jaramillo will compete with Steve Clevenger and Welington Castillo for a chance to back up Geovany Soto this year.
Adding up the money already committed for 2012 is not a pretty exercise. Here’s a run-down of the dollars owed so far.
It’s not yet clear when and how the Commissioner will make his decision, but it may now be out of the Cubs’ and Red Sox’s hands.
Wood keeps spurning the White Sox. Theo Epstein doesn’t take players to arbitration, Yoenis Cespedes is a good fit, and the Cardinals get to party with the Chief.

The Cubs’ catcher was in his second year of arbitration.
Ricketts loves his new front office, has high hopes for Wrigley Field, is willing to eat some salary, and is happy to have the Carlos Zambrano situation behind him.
Most projections have Volstad earning between $2.5 million and $3 million in 2012, but is that a bit high?

Darwin Barney leading off? Theo Epstein a star? Tom Ricketts loves Kerry Wood? Cubs players filing for arbitration? Anthony Rizzo a good kid?
