The Cubs have invited the following players to Spring Training to join previous NRIs Marqius Grissom, Augie Ojeda, and Michael Restovich:
* OF Adam Greenberg
* RHP Bobby Brownlie
* LHP Carmen Pignatiello
* LHP Raul Valdez
* RHP Randy Wells
* C Dennis Anderson
* C Jake Fox
* IF Casey McGehee
* 1B Brandon Sing
* OF Buck Coats
Arizona Phil mentioned most of these guys a few days ago, and none of them has a chance to make the team, but it will be great to see Brownlie throwing in Mesa.
It's not much news, but it is actual news
about the 2006 season. Pitchers and catchers report on February 15th, and the first Cactus League game is on March 2nd against the A's. That's only 55 days away!
PS: I didn't open comments on the Frappr post because I didn't figure it was worth discussing. I guess I should have realized that you guys will talk about anything. At least that's one post where the comments aren't full of Miguel Tejada rumors...
