An interesting mix for a Sunday.
From Comcast SportsNet
- Albert Almora is already a natural leader in the Cubs' system.
- Meanwhile, fellow prospect Kris Bryant is ignoring the hype.
- Travis Wood was the team's best starter last year. And he's refusing to get complacent.
- Rick Renteria knows all about proving people wrong.
From Cubs Den
- Kyle Hendricks is a man with a plan.
- Some Cub notes look at projections, prospects, Darwin Barney, and whether the Cubs would really move.
- The position previews continue at first base with a look at Anthony Rizzo.
- EconoBall looks at the value of strikeouts to a pitcher.
- Ryan Kalish is more appreciative of what he has now that he has another shot with the Cubs. Did you know he had the same surgery as Peyton Manning?
- The countdown to camp looks at the bench.
- Former Cub Adrian Cardenas is looking for a new field of dreams.
- Three additional spring-training games will be on TV in markets outside Chicago, carried by the other team's channel: 3/3 vs. Brewers (FSN Wisconsin), 3/12 vs. Mariners (ROOT Sports Seattle) and 3/14 vs. Dodgers (SportsNet LA).
