- The Cubs cut seven players from their roster today bring it down to 33 players. The players cut are James Adduci, Jeff Gray, John Gaub, Marcos Mateo, Darwin Barney, Robinson Chirinos, and Bobby Scales.
- James Russell will be with the Cubs to start the season, he will join a pretty young and inexperience pen.
- The Cubs set their starting rotation today. Carlos Zambrano, Ryan Dempster, Randy Wells, Carlos Silva, and Tom Gorzelanny.
-The Cubs will go with Marmol, Marshall, Grabow, Caridad, Berg, Shark, and Russell for their bullpen.
- Mike Parisi will be offered back to St. Louis because he did not make the roster.
- Here is something in the interesting column. I heard from a source close to Jim Hendry that earlier this offseason the Cubs and Yankees almost made a trade that would have sent Fukudome, Samardzija, and a type A prospect for Brett Gardner and Nick Swisher but talk that Fukudome would invoke his no-trade clause killed the possible trade.
Until Next Time...
