2/19 First full squad workout

Wednesday is the day for the Cubs’ first full squad workout, which means it’s time for live batting practice, which is always entertaining. Among the pitchers scheduled to pitch are Jeff Samardzija, Carlos Villanueva, Justin Grimm, Neil Ramirez, Travis Wood, Chris Rusin, Kyle Hendricks, and Armando Rivero. Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts was expected to address the media.

The players will be on the field later because manager Rick Renteria is scheduled to address them.

I wouldn’t mind Renteria ending his speech to his players by saying……..”Seize Your Glory”

Am I the only one, does anyone else see the following: Iowa AAA, 3B-Villanueva, SS-Baez, 2B-Alcantrera, LF-B Jackson, CF-Szczur, RF-B Vitters, Maybe Rubi Silva or Ja-Hoon Ha.? Rohan at 1B, Lopez Catcher.

With the exception of 1B and C, the line up is all top 20 prospects, if you include HA in RF.

I would think your better players should be at the AAA level. Of those how many would make a big league ballclub.I love the direction the Cubs are going though. Thru trades and drafts they are looking long term run,making it very interesting. The years ahead look promising,short term has not. We will still pull for them because WE ARE CUB FANS! Hopefully it will be sooner than later but as always i will pull for the Cubs. P.S. have noticed some new names and views,keep it coming,very enjoyable 15 min. of time spent in a rather chaotic life.
