- The Cubs will keep their Spring Training in Mesa.
- The Tribune is saying that the Cubs are courting free agent outfielder Jonny Gomes and Gomes even confirms this.
- The Cubs are also talking to Dye and Nady but according to Levine the Cubs have now looked beyond Dye because he must decide to retire or take a part-time job and a 60% paycut to stay playing baseball.
- Levine also add that the Cubs are talking to the Jays about Jason Frasor and the Padres about Luke Gregerson as well as Heath Bell.
- He did mention Reed Johnson and Rocco Baldelli are still in the mix for the fourth outfielder spot.
- The Cubs have had talks with Kiko Calero but have "no interest at this point" according to Levine.
- Although the Cubs are looking for a righty for the outfield they are still keeping tabs on Ankiel because his price and stock continue to drop. I would not mind if the Cubs added Baldelli and Ankiel? That would be too goo to be true though.
