3/14 Cubs on deck

Randy Wells gets the start on Wednesday when the Cubs face the Brewers for the second time this spring. First pitch scheduled for 1:05 p.m. Arizona time and the game will be broadcast on Cubs.com. Travis Wood, Lendy Castillo, Casey Coleman, and Trever Miller also are slated to pitch in the game at HoHoKam Park.

* Alfonso Soriano has hit safely in all six games he’s played in. He has four homer, tied for the Major League lead with the Tigers’ Ryan Rayburn. Darwin Barney has hit safely in all seven games he’s played in.

* Junior Lake must be feeling better. He was taking grounders at shortstop early Wednesday. He was sidelined Tuesday after fouling a ball off his left ankle.

* On Thursday, Rodrigo Lopez will face the Rockies in Scottsdale, while Ryan Dempster starts against the Diamondbacks in Mesa. This is the start of a stretch in which the Cubs will play four split squad games in six days, including two in Las Vegas against the Rangers Saturday and Sunday.

On MLB Trade Rumors:
Sources say that LEFT FIELD could also be a position the Phillies are looking to bolster. With Howard sidelined, John Mayberry Jr. might have to pitch in at first base. Help at third base might also be in order as Placido Polanco is coming off surgery to repair a double groin tear.

Hello Alfonso Soriano! The spring training homerun leader!!!

how does dempster look? He has been in a downhill slide since 2008. Mainly he has been a picther who eats up innings but gives up a lot of runs. Randy Wells pitched better than dempster the last 2 months of 2011
