Did You Change Your Clock? Cubs vs. Angels at Tempe Preview, Sunday 3/14, 3:05 CT

Ahead!

If you didn't change your clock last night (Daylight Saving time began at 2 am) and you're just getting up, time to -- as that old saying goes -- "spring ahead". It may still be chilly and rainy in Chicago, but this is one of the best first signs of spring -- it should now be light till around 7 pm if you live in the Chicago area. And remember, that means the rest of the spring schedule starts an hour later, at 3:05 pm CDT.

The Cubs now return to single games -- their next split-squad is next Saturday (and the team will have its only spring off day on Wednesday -- something they could surely use with the nagging little injuries).

Yesterday's crowd of 11,825 at Mesa brought the spring average to 10,277 -- about what it was last year with the best weather yet to come. Prediction: the 2010 spring average attendance will be about the same or a little higher than 2009.

Randy Wells goes for the Cubs, his third spring start. The Cubs thought they'd be free of nemesis Joel Pineiro after he left the Cardinals. No such luck today -- Pineiro starts for the Angels (and the Cubs will face the Angels during the regular season at Wrigley, too).
