Here is some tidbits from the online world-
- Randy Bush says the Cubs biggest off-season acquisition is Rudy Jaramillo. He feels he will get Mike Fontenot, Soriano, and Soto all back on track.
- 40 players have already reported to ST. That is a good sign for the Cubs and there should be some really good competition for the last spots on the team.
- Randy Bush says that it is not realistic that Starlin Castro makes the big leagues out of Spring because he says he needs more seasoning. Just plain stupid! If the kid hits .350 and is playing Gold Glove defense at SS how are you going tell him he needs more "seasoning"?! Give the kid every chance to win the job because Theriot at SS is brutal.
- Tyler Colvin added 25 pounds this winter working with Tim Buss.
- Bryan LaHair is showing his power but he has a lot of competition.
- Big Z broke a bat over his knee on Friday during BP, some thing never change.
- The Cubs will not add another position player before or during ST via free agency. The Cubs are still looking for a right handed set-up guy.
