Split Squad Day: Cubs vs. Indians at Goodyear, Wednesday 3/4, 2:05 CT

Some of the Cubs -- the only one we're clear on is Milton Bradley, who will return as the DH today -- will be in Goodyear to play the Indians, as the Cubs make their first visit to the Tribe's new Goodyear Ballpark. Kerry Wood is not expected to pitch against his former mates today, and Mark DeRosa is off at the World Baseball Classic.

Chad Gaudin gets the start for the Cubs vs. Cleveland's Carl Pavano. The Cubs last faced Pavano when he was a Yankee on June 17, 2005 at Yankee Stadium. They cuffed him around pretty good, but the Yankees hit Carlos Zambrano harder and won 9-6. (That was a pretty awful lineup that day -- how did they score six runs?)

Pat & Ron return on WGN radio for this afternoon's game. Here's the MLB.com Mediacenter link for the rest of today's games, which include several WBC teams playing against other ML squads in Florida (and Australia vs. the Mariners in Peoria, Arizona).

If you don't have access to audio, here's today's MLB.com Gameday link.

I'll post a recap of this game when it's over and then another game thread (or maybe combine them) for the night game (9:05 CST) in Vegas.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
