First Week of Spring Training 2023 (Series Thread)
Welcome back to Chicago Cubs baseball for a 2023 season! February 25th marks the beginning of Cactus League play for the Chicago Cubs, who will be debuting the newly signed shortstop Dansby Swanson in his blue pinstripes. While significant narratives look less than abundant for the Cubs this February and March, there is the potential for some competition at third base and on the bench. And the Cubs have a few exciting prospects in camp who are likely to arrive in Chicago sometime in 2024 if not sooner.
Series threads will return with the regular season. In the meantime, you can expect a post each week and a place to share your comments on game play, roster construction, the World Baseball Classic, etc. Enjoy the return of our preferred bat and ball sport and the players' pastime between rounds of golf!
