11/10 Spring Training

The Cubs have yet to announce their 2011 Spring Training schedule, but the Brewers did, and they will open the Cactus League season Feb. 28 with a game in Mesa, Ariz. The Cubs and Brewers also will square off March 2 in Maryvale. The Indians also have released their schedule, and they will play the Cubs March 10 in Mesa and March 28 in Goodyear. We expect to get Cubs full schedule soon.

6/6 Up in the air

In a span of about 57 hours, give or take a few, the Cubs will play in three different ballparks, beginning Sunday in Houston at Minute Maid Park. They have a makeup game Monday at PNC Park in Pittsburgh (11:35 a.m. CT) and then fly to Milwaukee to open a series Tuesday night against the Brewers at Miller Park.

* Last season, the Cubs played three games in three days in three different ballparks when they met the Indians at Wrigley on June 21, 2009; then play at Atlanta, then at Detroit.

* The last time the Cubs played three games in three days in three different road parks was 2004 when they faced Cincinnati on Sept. 19 (a 5-1 win), then played a doubleheader in Florida Sept. 20 (which they split), and then traveled to Pittsburgh Sept. 21 (a 10-inning win). Hurricane Francis in Miami forced that crazy itinerary.
