We all think we're cool. Len Kasper IS cool. Prospects are cool. Good investments are cool. Investments that don't pan out? Not cool.
The usual mix of good news and bad news. I can't wait for real games to start.
From Comcast SportsNet
- After winning the Jorge Soler sweepstakes, the Cubs are investing in another Cuban player, though at lower stakes.
- (Video, too) Speaking of Soler, he and fellow super prospect Javier Baez have gotten a taste of The Show.
From Cubs Den
- If you want to hang with the cool, spend some time with Len Kasper.
- This is just strange to me, though I appreciate the sentiment. Alfonso Soriano is speaking out against big free agent spending.
- The Cubs Den resident prospect guru thinks the Cubs should strongly consider University of San Diego third baseman Kris Bryant with the second overall pick.
- Adjustments have been the key to a fresh start for Steve Clevenger.
- (Video) Alfonso Soriano was photographed from all sides to be part of a video game.
- Nate Schierholtz is working hard to learn the quirks of Wrigley Field.
- Blake Parker has looked good this spring, but a spot in the improved Cub bullpen may be tough to earn.
- (Video only) Edwin Jackson talks about his strong spring.
- (Video only) Chris Rusin has been pleased with his development. And Dale Sveum has noticed.
- Sammy Sosa offered condolences to the family of Hugo Chavez.
- The Cubs' gambles on Scott Baker and Ian Stewart aren't paying off so far.
- With Stewart still on the shelf, opportunity has knocked for Brent Lillibridge and Luis Valbuena.
From the Chicago Sun-Times (can read a paragraph, register to read the rest)
- The spring success of Soler and Baez is making the Cubs' future look bright.
From the Daily Herald (registry required for all)
- Dale Sveum thinks the Cubs are in a better spot.
