2/21 Wake-up call

Eight pitchers are scheduled to throw live BP sessions on Friday at Cubs camp. The list includes James McDonald, Jose Veras, Hector Rondon, Pedro Strop, Tsuyoshi Wada, Zac Rosscup, Tommy Hottovy and Brian Schlitter. McDonald is a candidate for the rotation. James, 29, had a tough time last season with the Pirates. He was limited to six games because of shoulder issues, and posted a 2-2 record and 5.76 ERA. Pittsburgh designated him for assignment in September, and outrighted him to Triple-A Indianapolis but McDonald refused the assignment, and elected free agency.

The Cubs players are scheduled to be on the field at 9:30 a.m. Arizona time to stretch. It should be another beautiful day in Mesa.

That’s nice it is another beautiful day in Arizona……..enjoy your Spring!
Here in Chicago, the temps are dropping, we had some more snow this morning and the winds are over 50mph.
Next week, we will have a high of 8 degrees!
For all those Arizona people who laugh at our Chicago winter…..
May your Arizona Summers be a 120 degrees in the shade this year!
May your water wells run dry.
May a thousand sand flies infest your arm pits.
And may you wear pink underwear complaints of your local Sheriff.

And may no Cubs Pitcher get hurt!…..because we are going to need everyone of these guys this season.

I love that you post these training schedules on here! I hope you’re still doing it in a few weeks (when I’m out there in the sun!)

Conditions are less than ideal here in the deep south today, with rain and wind and a tornado watch. You all are fortunate to have dry and sunny conditions conducive to baseball activities. I’m envious. Enjoy!
