Well, you know the song. The Cubs have trimmed their roster by 18 players. Most of the cuts haven’t been a surprise but young players like Josh Vitters, Bret Jackson and Jay Jackson have been somewhat of a surprise at least this early on.
A DAY OFF
So, what’s my verdict on the Cubs this spring? I think they’re doing all right. A convincing win over the A’s and I’m confident that Cashner will secure a spot with the club this year.
I’m also really surprised with the play of Fukodome. He must have been reading our blogs. He’s still got to work on those strikeouts second with 11.
Starlin Castro has 2 stolen bases and although it’s only spring, I think this is a great sign and I’m hoping we’ll see more base running this season. He also is leading the team in RBI’s with 9. I love that stat. So, I don’t think Castro will suffer any sophomore jinx this season and will lead the team.
Go Cubs Go!
