We all have the same valentine today - baseball. No need to send flowers or chocolates, this game will clean out your wallet in other ways.

Hoping to see more of these this season.

As it relates to this column, what I love is having actual baseball stuff to link you to.

From Comcast SportsNet

  • Jeff Samardzija is banking on a big season. That is, a long-term extension for him was tabled this offseason in part because Shark wants to be paid like a front-line starter. This season he intends to strengthen his case.
  • Meanwhile, rotationmate Edwin Jackson will be in the middle of it all for the Cubs. That includes standing up for his teammates in a brouhaha.
  • New Cub pitcher Carlos Villanueva sees the team going to the next level.
  • Fitch Park is the land of opportunity. For now, that is, before the Cubs become a mega-team.

From Cubs Den

  • Who will be the 25th man this year? My take? It doesn't matter who has the job at the end of March, it will be a different dude by the time May rolls around based on injury and/or performance.
