Offday cubs notes

Here is some notes from the Cubs front today-

1. Dempster is joined other Cubs to help with Project 3000. He will give $50,000 to Project 3000, plus $1,000 for each save.

2. Lou has said that his starting CF for opening day is Soriano.

3. It is possible that Prior will start in AAA Iowa at the beginning of the year. This depending on his minor league game which was pushed back to Friday. There is also a possibility he starts the season on the DL, AGAIN!

4. Barry Praver and Jim will likely meet this Saturday to get a long term deal done with Big Z.

5. Mlbtraderumors has said that the cubs are inquiring about Braves utility man Chris Woodward.
----- I still have faith in the emailer that said the Cubs are trying to acquire Renteria, we will see what comes of this.

6. Miller has leg up on 5th spot in rotation. Was hitting 87-88 mph on his fastball last start. Topping out at 90 mph. Looks like his velocity is coming back. Also Lou has set his 4 man rotation so far.
