Cub Tracks Gains Confidence

Since it is spring training, I assume he is looking for dandelions. - USA TODAY Sports

Seeing the improvement in Alfonso Soriano should be inspirational to us all. So today Cub Tracks looks at what inspires, Rizzo's surprise trip to Miami, Edwin Jackson and Jeff Samardzija turning things around, Javy Baez getting punked, and why all eyes are on a Hooters' girl.

When thinking about the "ruining the rebuild" story, I half imagine the team getting together and having a 'Major League' moment. But I'm not sure Dale Sveum can pull off a Lou Brown and I'm pretty certain the Ricketts family isn't trying to knock attendance down to move the team to Miami.

Today's food for thought

  • This happens a couple times a season, but this occasion just has a spring training feel. A ball girl, advertising for a popular restaurant chain where every guy swears they go for the food, picked up a fair ball.
