On the Eve of Cubdom!

- The Cubs have claimed Luis Valbuena off of waivers today adding him to the 40-man and 25 man roster.
-  The corresponding move was Frankie De La Cruz outrighted to AAA.
-  There maybe more moves coming but nothing to report as of yet.
- The Daytona Cubs have released their Opening Day Roster.
- The Tennessee Smokies have also released their Opening Day Roster.
- We are still waiting on the Iowa Cubs roster which could change with all the trade talk.
- Numerous teams are still in talks with the Chicago Cubs involving Marlon Byrd.
- The police are still investigating the sexual assault allegations against Starlin Castro.
- Sveum has been a little down on Lendy Castillo recently so the bullpen is still up in the air but Rodrigo Lopez, Shawn Camp, Manny Corpas and Lendy Castillo are still in the running.
- LaHair has some back issues but the Cubs do not expect to start him on the DL but that could change if he is not 100% today.
- Darwin Barney will be the Cubs two hole hitter this year.
- The Cubs continue to look for left-handed help in the bullpen according to Levine.
- Levine says Garza is looking for a 5 year deal around $65M. Seems about right.
- Levine feels Shark will win more games than Peavy
- Cubs love Vitters bat but if Stewart struggles you will not see Vitters as the first to be called up because of his glove.
- Levine says LaHair has the shortest leash in the starting 8.
- Dave McKay has been working with Soriano’s D.
- The Cubs are planning to go with 11 pitchers to start the season and 14 position players
Until Next Time..
