3/8 Vegas, baby

James Russell will make his first spring start Saturday in Las Vegas when the Cubs split squad faces the Reds. Carlos Zambrano will start on Sunday in Vegas against the Dodgers. Russell went three innings in his last outing Monday against the Angels.

“I felt really good,” Russell said of his outing Monday. “I’m closer. There were just a couple mistakes that came back to bite me in the butt but overall, I felt really good.”

What helps is being stretched out. He was used strictly in relief last season. Doesn’t he get antsy between outings?

“A little bit,” Russell said, smiling. “I feel left out, not throwing every other day.”

Carrie, Have thoroughly enjoyed your articles, comments, and Cub blogs. Follow us with your fans including drama involving the Cubs on Sportademics.com – “Clark and Addison” – a 20 something Cub hangout ( Weaghman’s Park ) which really gets into Chicago Sports. New Spring Training episode kicking off season due out soon. Can’t get enough ” Cold Rooms ” will take one deeper into the Cubs mystique, 20 something lifestyle, and all that is great about living in Chicago and enjoying the Chicago sports world. Thanx again.
