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?
- Anthony Rizzo is vying for All-Star votes.
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."
