Pre-Twitter tweets:
"You'll never hear surf music again." -- Jimi Hendrix.

"That's a big lie." -- Dick Dale. "Jimi, I'm still here. Wish you were."

On Board:

  • Evan Altman (Cubs Insider): An early look at Jake Arrieta's fantasy rankings. Jake is 3rd. Greinke dropped.
  • Barry Svrluga (Washington Post): Why the Cubs will win the NL Central in 2016. "A pre-spring training look at the division, which might have three playoff contenders again."
  • Nicholas D. Blazek (Cubbies Crib): Are the Cardinals getting jealous of the Cubs? Will they pursue Dexter Fowler to get even? "Fowler would be a smart signing in that he immediately would stabilize their leadoff spot." Yeah. It makes sense. I'd hate it, though.

Catch the wave:

  • Michael Cerami (Bleacher Nation): Will there be a back of the rotation competition between Adam Warren and Kyle Hendricks? Speculation based on Sahadev Sharma article.
  • Carrie Muskat ( Javier Baez looking to rebound in 2016. Baez is so versatile that he can sweep the glass, too. "Don't let him near the ice," Anthony Rizzo didn't say. Baez is trying to find a fit on the 25-man roster. Any way he can.
  • Zack Moser (Wrigleyville-Baseball Prospectus): From Altman to Murton: A short history of the Cubs in NPB. How many Cubs have left the team to go play in Japan? And how have those players fared in Nippon Professional Baseball?
  • John Arguello (Cubs Den): Say Hey! Look who's in Center Field today! Pics of and words about Jason Heyward, an early reporter to spring training.

In the Pipeline:

The Next Wave:

The wave after that:

  • Kyle Thele (Chicago Sun-Times): "The Bachelor" is coming to Wrigley Field. No truth to the rumor that Rizzo is being cast. Long-running show shooting in Chicago.
  • Kyle Thele (Chicago Sun-Times): David Ross wants to eventually become a manager. "He’s been called a "manager on the field" and is thought of as an extension of Joe Maddon."
  • Chicago Cubs Online: Cubs among nine teams showing strong interest in Lazaro (Lazarito) Armenteros. Jesse Sanchez confirmed this Tuesday.
  • Carrie Muskat ( Jaron Madison encourages kids to play baseball. "...back in the day, it was always baseball that the family circled around..." Not basketball, not football, not hockey. Baseball.

Food for thought:

Wave Goodbye:

  • Ebb and neap are tied. I can't think of a saltier joke to tell you.
