Tidbits from Wednesday workout

Hitters will face live pitchers, as opposed to coaches throwing batting practice, on Friday at Fitch Park. The Cubs begin Cactus League play on Feb. 25, so there are plenty of games, but not as much time to get ready for them.

Lou Piniella said he’s not worried about Kosuke Fukudome missing time in Cubs camp. Fukudome is training with the Japan team for the World Baseball Classic, and Piniella reported that he played in an intrasquad game Tuesday and apparently played all three outfield positions. Fukudome will be moving from right to center with the Cubs.

Maybe the soft tossing lefties like Marshall & Lilly can throw some batting practice. Seems to me in the past the Cubs have had trouble against the soft tossing lefties, especially inside our own division. Guys like Duke, Capuano, & the guy from Houston Wandy Rodriguez own us.

How much does Lou really dislike Fukudome?
