SCOTTSDALE, Arizona -- I know it's early, but I must take Rachel and her friend to the airport to return to Chicago (they have to be back in school on Monday!) before the game.
Half the Cubs will be in Mesa (WGN Radio & TV) to face the A's. Sean Marshall will pitch against Rich Harden.
The other half will hie out to Surprise again to take on the Royals. Jerome Williams will pitch against one of the weirdest-named players in baseball history, Runelvys Hernandez. I'll be at that game.
I'm also going to take this opportunity to let those of you in the Chicago area know about a cool new movie that's being screened next Wednesday about baseball in Ireland. Tickets, as they say, are still available!
Discuss amongst yourselves.
