The beat writers appear to be bored.
From Comcast SportsNet
- Jeff Samardzija responds to criticisms made by the Diamondbacks.
- The Cubs are trying a different approach with Starlin Castro. So far, that approach is "make more outs."
From Cubs Den
- Starlin Castro is just in a slump. Right? I disagree.
- Some last minute draft notes.
- Working from the assumption (right or wrong) that the Cubs would prefer Mark Appel, what should the team do if he is off the board tonight?
L.A., err, California, err, Anaheim, err LAAAA of AAAA. Ugh. The Angels and Cubs are on different paths.
- Phil Rogers identifies draft hits and misses by both the Cubs and White Sox. Not much digging required for that.
- (Video) Jason McLeod talks about today's draft.
From the Chicago Sun-Times
- The Cubs are taking a pitcher with their first pick tonight. Probably.
- Mike Trout is surrounded by star power in California. Anthony Rizzo does not have that luxury.
From the Daily Herald
- Bruce Miles talks about Edwin Jackson's "bad luck."
