2/23 First round action

The Cubs bunting tournament got underway Thursday among the pitchers. Winners who advance to the next round include Jeff Beliveau, Lendy Castillo, Trey McNutt, Rafael Dolis, Dae-Eun Rhee, Chris Rusin, Scott Maine, and Casey Coleman. Maine won his round against  Blake Parker on his last bunt, hitting the 40-point block on the third base side. The competition is being held on a half field at Fitch Park with spaces designated with different points, ranging from 10 to 40. Rusin can relax. He was matched up with strength coach Tim Buss, and had no problems beating him. The winner of the pitchers division will face the winner of the position players division.

Think this is all fun and games? Matt Garza was practicing on Thursday after the first round ended.

What a great idea. Props to Sveum for this.

Carrie, Is there anywhere on-line where we can see the bracket of 64 as it develops? I’d like to make a few friendly wagers… Here’s to a great season!

Yes Carrie, I would also love to see an online bracket. There was also no mention of a play-in game between yourself and the other beat writers. I think at a minimum you should have been given a shot at one of the 2 at large bids.
