Carrie Muskat has written another article. In it she outlines the following points:
- "Big Z" will start on opening day, 2007.
- Center field is still, of course, open.
- As many as eight guys will compete for five spots in the rotation. Wood is not one of them.
- Piniella will stress "fundamentals."
- The Cubs will put in long hours in Mesa.
- A player who misses the 25-man roster but performs well probably will be called up later.
It should be an interesting weekend at the Convention/Cubbie Love Fest. I'll admire it all from afar.
