2/9 Extra bases

* This spring, the Cubs will have their second bunting tournament, with a slight tweak. The front office will compete for a spot in the field of 64, and Theo Epstein was expected to square off against GM Jed Hoyer in their first round match. David DeJesus won the tourney last year.

* Scott Feldman had his first bullpen session on Saturday at Fitch Park. Pitchers and catchers report Sunday, and will take physicals on Monday with the first workout scheduled for Tuesday.

* Outfielder Reggie Golden, the No. 2 pick in 2010, is healthy after suffering a hyperextended left knee in the seventh game of last season at Class A Peoria. He’s also one of the early bird position players in camp. “I’m so excited to be hitting — every time I take a swing, I’m happy to be back,” Golden said.

He’s also been impressed with how Dale Sveum interacts with the young players. “Every day, he says, ‘Good morning, how are you guys doing?’ I would love to play for him,” Golden said.

Maybe Tony Campana will win this year! Once he bunts to base he can fly fly around the bases and drive the other pitchers nuts! Fun to watch.

Well I guess Campana won’t be in the bunting contest after all. I am quite sad to see that he won’t be at Wrigley this year. At least that is the way it looks now. Tony is a true scrapper and I hope he will do well wherever he ends up playing. He has been thrilling to watch flying around the bases! Go fly Tony!
