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.

- (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.
