Another check off the endless list of milestones

Free agency
Winter meetings
Rule 5 draft
Pitchers and Catchers report
First full team workout

And today, the first spring training game!!!!

The Cubs play the A's at 2pm at HoHoKam Park.

I really don't know what is doing yet for online gameday stuff yet, but today's game is on gameday audio, (and for those of you who actually live in Chicago, it's on WGN radio.)

I'm sure there will be a game thread up over at LOHO.

I'm working on some game day information widget-like things for the sidebar to be ready by opening day. Hopefully they'll turn out. I might give it a pre-season tryout in the next couple weeks.

Anyway, the reported lineup today is as follows:

The Fook

I haven't heard who else is scheduled to pitch, but it has been mentioned that future hall-of-famer, Starlin Castro, is expected to get some time at shortstop today.

So that's what we have on tap.

I'll probably have another post around lunch time today...and will make notes here on any interesting happenings from the game today after it ends.

Almost Friday...and the temperature is starting to rise! Spring is approaching, folks!
