No one else posted links to these somewhat interesting stories this morning, so I will.
1) Marquis Grissom will apparently be offered a minor-league contract by the Cubs. Not a huge deal, but could represent a piece of the incomplete bench. Irritating to note Mike Kiley again refer to Neifi as the "projected starter" at 2B. Partly because I want Neifi as a back-up, and partly because management has not called him a starter yet and Kiley seems to be ahead of himself.
2) Not content with succeeding Sammy (again) at Baltimore, Jeromy Burnitz is apparently looking to finally beat Sosa to a right field gig this time (the Pirates were rumored to be considering Sammy, but now it looks like Burnitz might have the edge there).
