Cubs Talk: Pitchers and Catchers Edition

- Tim Sheridan has a fantastic blog called "Boys of Spring." Please check it out as it is loaded with everything Cubs Spring Training related. The pictures are amazing as well. Find it here.

- Blake DeWitt cleared waivers and was sent to AAA yesterday. I thought he has an OK chance to be claimed with interest from several clubs but obviously no one is "that'' interested.

- The Phillies are now considered long shots to land Soler. I am hearing the Yankees are the most aggressive besides the Cubs.

- The Theo compensation issue should be completed by Monday according to numerous baseball officials. Selig has spent a ton of time on the issue and my guess neither the Cubs or Red Sox will like the decision. An established player like Jeff Baker or young prospects like Dolis or Golden could be disappointments for both teams if considered compensation by Bud.

- Bryan LaHair is named the Player of the Year in the Winter League. The guy can just rake and I really hope he does the same in Chicago this year.

- The Marlins have dropped out of the Soler sweepstakes and the Orioles have jumped in.

- Chicago Cubs Online has a great look back on the Cubs offseason. Which you can find

- Tom Loxas of Cubs den does a nice 5 question interview with Baseball Tonight's Chris Singleton. Which you can find Here.

- Please check Hot Stove Cubbies updated "Hot Stove Friends" that includes Bleacher Nation, Cubs Den, and The Boys of Spring. It is located half way down the page on the right hand side column.

Until Next Time...
