    Imagine if the current Cubs team (or anyone from the 2003 or 2004 teams) got together for a fundraiser game like the Cubs did back in the '70s.

    Who do you think would make the best team?

    I'm guessing that Prior, Wood, Hollandsworth, Derek Lee and Farnsworth might make up a winning basketball team.

    Who would you pick?

    Trivia questions:

    Who is this pictured?

    What is he doing these days?

    Is the cigar lit?

    There goes Farnsie

    CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs reshuffled their bullpen Wednesday, dealing hard-throwing Kyle Farnsworth to the Detroit Tigers for three minor leaguers.

    Click on link above for the rest of the story...

    Looks like we're down to 6 or 7 remaining from the 2003 Cubs team.

    Aramis Ramirez
    Joe Borowski
    Mark Prior
    Mike Remlinger
    Kerry Wood
    Carlos Zambrano

    and Corey Patterson who was injured back then.

    My wife is very disappointed that Farnsworth is gone. She called him cutie-pie.

    I, on the other hand, am mixed about it. I am frustrated that he never reached the incredible potential that I think he has, and worry that he might start showing it now. On the other hand, it is well known that Kyle had a problem with maturity and being a professional athlete. His late nights at the bars and clubs are renown. If he decides to be a professional pitcher, he could be awesome.

    I wanted him to learn the split fingered fastball that Bruce Sutter did so well with.
    He really needed something...

    More photos!

    This one was taken after an Astros home run left Wrigley.
    I think Kerry Wood served up this one, but I could be wrong. It wasn't Farnsy because he wasn't pitching yet in this game.

    Check out what is going on in the bleachers. I thought it was interesting.

    Was in Orlando last month. Had a difficult time finding lodging. Florida was booked due to holiday weekends, Daytona, fishing tourneys, PMA and just plain nice weather.

    Went to a home church hosted by a family who works for Disney. They arranged for a room for us at a Disney resort.

    While we were on the Disney grounds, I wanted to check out the stadium where the Atlanta Braves have spring training.

    My photos from that visit can be found here:

    http://leovilletownsquare.com/ubbthreads/showflat.php?Cat=0&Number=749300

    So far, this is the closest I've even been to spring training.

    Does anyone have photos from the Cub's spring training?

    I've driven by Hohokam when I was in the Phoenix area once. Never been there in March, though. I'll be in the Sarasota area next week, so I might get to a game at the Pirates or Reds facilities.

    I found an interesting program on Sports Psychology that mentioned studies done on the Houston Astro's minor leaguers.

    The program aired on the Research Channel, which is available via the Dish Network and FTA satellite...and also via archived webcasts! So you can probably watch this if you're interested.

    quote from website:

    Garciaparra moves on

    Longtime Red Sox shortstop holds no grudges about deal that sent him to Cubs.

    Sample from article:

    Face of a franchise? When Garciaparra was traded, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, linked to Garciaparra by position and rivalry, blinked and said he couldn't imagine the Red Sox without him.

    Cub fans tv listings....

    Comcast re-airs some games. Watch game times carefully for reruns. ESPN2 games might include Steve Stone as announcer. All times listed are central time zone.

    If you're Tivo'ing or recording the games to vcr, remember to add 10 minutes to the beginning of the telecast for the pregame show and add extra time at the end too for the post game show and in case the game runs over the allotted time.
