Busy Day in Cubs Camp....

- According to the Cubs signed 18 year old righty Kin Jin-Yeong with a 1.2 million dollar signing bonus. Kim can hit 92 MPH on his fastball but unfortunately he is rather a mystery.

- The players are "hungry" and "ready to go" according to Sweet Lou.

- Ryan Theriot's arbitration hearing is scheduled for Friday. I fully expect the Cubs to win that case.

- Lou makes it sound like Starlin Castro has no chance to make the team. Sounds like he will be in AAA with Sandberg to start the season. Hence the reason I left him off my 25-man roster.

- Carlos Silva is getting ready the "Mark Prior" way by throwing a towel.

- Thomas Diamond wants to prove to the Cubs he can start, he will likely be doing so in AAA.

- Angel Guzman and Jeff Gray both hit minor setbacks. Guzman hurt his knee and then had it scoped but is expect to be ready on Opening Day. Gray hurt his groin and will take it easy.

- Lou thinks Theriot will hit leadoff with Fukudome hitting 2nd and Lee batting 3rd and Aram 4th.

- Ted Lilly will undergo a MRI on this right knee after feeling discomfort the past couple of days. I hope it is nothing serious, otherwise the Cubs need to find another starter.

Until Next Time...

That's my friend's cousin. He said his out pitch is the slider. RH pitcher. Not much else info he could provide as he hasn't seen him play.
