The Cubs will be the first team featured on MLB Network's annual preview series. The network will also be showing five Cubs spring-training telecasts.
You know it's time for baseball when MLB Network releases its "30 Clubs In 30 Days" schedule (WARNING! Video starts playing right away).
The Cubs will be the first team featured in this series, tomorrow! That's Friday, February 15 at 5 p.m. CT as part of the network's MLB Tonight show; MLB Tonight repeats at 7 p.m. CT and 10 p.m. CT in case you miss the live version. All the other Cactus League teams will follow, then the Florida-training Grapefruit League clubs.
MLB Network will also be carrying five Cubs spring-training games this year, four on tape delay (ss indicates split-squad):
March 4, 8:3O a.m. CT: Cubs (ss) vs. Angels (tape of 3/3 game) March 16, 3 p.m. CT: Cubs (ss) vs. Rangers (ss) (LIVE game in Las Vegas; the Cubs/Royals game that day in Mesa will be on WGN-TV) March 17, 8 a.m. CT: Cubs (ss) vs. Royals (tape of 3/16 game; not available in Chicago market) March 22, 12:O5 a.m. CT: Cubs (ss) vs. Mariners (tape of 3/21 night game at Peoria) March 25, 6 a.m. CT: Cubs vs. Indians (tape of 3/24 game)
So, set your DVRs for the early-morning or late-night games; that makes one extra live game in addition to the four on WGN and two on CSN (the March 15 game against the White Sox will be on WGN as well, with the White Sox announcers). Here's MLB Network's full spring-training game telecast schedule.
