CUBS SPRING TRAINING ROLLS ALONG. Schwarber came up big in the 9th, giving the Cubs their second win of the spring. He is hitting the ball this spring, and has looked good in LF as well. Rizzo continues to hit the ball to all parts of the field, let’s see if he continues that into the summer. On the mound for the Cubs today, Darvish. Ross would like the batters to work on taking bad pitches, and going deeper into counts. “The K total is too high” Ross said, “and that is our focus, lowering that as spring progresses”.
As I progress into the regular season, I plan on writing these recaps more extensively, almost from the perspective of a beat writer.
