Box Score for 3-24, Other thoughts.

Here is a link to the cubs box score-

- Aram hit his 5th homer of the Spring and his 2nd in as many days. He went 1 for 2, RBI, and a walk

- Theriot had a RBI triple in the game. He also played LF

-Lee had another decent day having a hit and a walk

- Miller was great today and put alot of pressure on Prior. He pitched 5 innings giving up 3 hits and 0 walks! He also hit a double today.

- Guzman looked like he is out of the race now. He pitched 3 innings, gave up 2 runs on 4 hits and 4 SO.

- Ohman got the Save



Here is some ideas I have on our SP situation. I do think after today's outing that Miller has the 5th spot in the rotation. The only thing that could prevent that is an injury to Miller or Prior pitching 7 innings of scoreless, minimal hits and lots of SO.

Now it looks like Guzman and Prior will start in AAA or be traded. Here is where my speculation begins. Wang of the Yankees will start the season on the DL out for at least 3 weeks. He was projected the number 1 starter on the team. Also with Pettitte still sore and having back spasms all of the sudden the Yanks need more starting pitching. Yes the have Hughs, Pavano, and Kei, but they don't have any backup if they go down. So why not trade one of our pitchers for one of there players. They have some decent young talent and we have a surplus of starters.

Let me say this is just speculation. But I think the yanks and cubs should make a deal( It would be great to get Arod but that happen lol). Not sure what players we need but they have some good MI in there minor league system.
