The first part of this post will be a shameless promotion for "Cubs By The Numbers", co-written by me, Kasey Ignarski (kaseyi on BCB) and Matt Silverman.
If you don't have your own copy of this book yet, I've got a great deal for you. You can own a brand new copy of "Cubs By The Numbers" for $10 -- that's it. No extra shipping charges, no fees/taxes/whatever. Just $10 (sorry -- only for USA addresses. Other countries extra). Email me using the link on the left sidebar for details. UPDATE! To encourage you even further, for every book purchased I will donate $1 to Haiti earthquake relief.
After the jump, you'll find the complete numerical spring training roster for the 2010 Cubs as of today, including all non-roster invitees and various spring training instructors. I've also listed the six retired numbers (five Cub numbers plus #42 for Jackie Robinson) so you can see at a glance which numbers haven't been issued. Pitchers and catchers report four weeks from Thursday!
