Carlos Zambrano takes the mound for the Cubs today; he should be, if Lou's pattern holds, the first starter to go five innings. He will face Greg Smith, a lefthander the A's acquired as part of the Dan Haren trade last winter.
Under-the-radar roster move: late yesterday, the Cubs optioned Adam Harben to Double-A. Harben had not appeared in a game this spring. There have been some other cuts today; ak123 has the rest of them in this diary.
Heard from Deep Goat today. Nothing is going on at this time, and IF anything happens, it wouldn't be till the last week of camp.
