Your 2010 AZL Cubs!
After eight weeks of Extended Spring Training and another couple of weeks of mini-camp work-outs, the AZL Cubs begin league play tonight, as they face the AZL Angels at HoHoKam Park in Mesa.
Tennessee Smokies LHP Casey Lambert will get the start for the AZL Cubs, as he continues his rehab from 2009 Tommy John Surgery.
RHP Jesse Ginley has been moved up to Boise, and the Cubs have signed two more Non-Drafted Free-Agents (U. of Washington 2B Doug Cherry and Old Dominion 3B Jake McAloose) for their AZL club, giving the team a couple of additional college seniors to help provide some veteran leadership and mentors for the kids. (NDFA Siena U. OF Anthony Giansanti was signed ten days ago).

Twitterverse reporting that Almora's examination by a hand specialist went okay, it's still just a hand contusion.
Attaboy, Eloy! Jimenez named Midwest League MVP and Best Prospect.
FYI, formatting of the web page is weird.
Now who can argue with that? I think we're all indebted to Gabby Johnson for clearly stating what needed to be said. I'm particularly glad that these lovely children were here today to hear that speech. Not only was it authentic frontier gibberish, it expressed a courage little seen in this day and age.

You can start the CRUNCH EARLY AM REPORTER. Then you can blog to yourself, and argue with yourself about Jon Lester.
my current job has me coming in at 7am (eastern)...i miss staying up til 2am to watch west coast games.
Remember when west coast road trips were a good time to catch up on some reading?
Taboola field is more appropriate.

The things you have to do to pay for James Shields contract.
I wonder if they'll have to make use of the Guaranteed Rate logo, which is a giant red arrow pointing downward.
