News From Cubs Camp....

- Lilly missed practice on Thursday with a very high fever.

- Gray is expect to pitch next week sometime.

- The Cubs are looking for a backup shortstop and are going to give Fonty a shot until March 15th but if he cannot handle it then Blanco will get the nod. Levine also mentioned that Castro will likely start in AA or AAA.

- Soriano said his knee feels great and had excellent results over the past two days.

- Samardzija is throwing the ball well says Larry Rothchild. I still expect him to start in AAA.

- Guzman is shut down for a couple days just to be safe. He will also recieve a MRI but all roads point to him being ready for Opening Day.

- The Cubs are still looking for a veteran pitcher but Caridad has been told he basically has one of the spots in the pen.

- It is likely Carlos Zambrano will be the Opening Day starter.

Until Next Time....

Samardzja is looking damn good. He'll be our #4 or #5 man out of the gate.
