Today, the Cubs announced the details for purchasing single-game tickets. Details can be found here: http://www.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20120227&content_id=26878324&vkey=pr_mlb&c_id=chc&partnerId=aw-4989702543269674948-1023
On another note, former Cubs reliever Sean Marshall signed a three-year, $16.5 million extension with the Reds. "I'm super excited," Marshall said. "Since day one when I came to the new facility here and got to meet my Reds teammates and staff, and got to be back with Dusty [Baker] and the coaches I was with, they were all very welcoming. I've been very excited so far in Spring Training." Marshall's contract carries a partial no-trade clause and he can earn up to $1 million in bonuses for games finished as a closer, and $1 million for games started should he ever become part of the rotation. I'm happy for Marshall, who is very deserving of the extension, but am a little bummed since he won't be returning to the Cubs anytime soon.
There was a small scare this morning when Kerry Wood drilled Starlin Castro's right wrist during batting practice. Thankfully, Castro was ok and was able to continue with practice. Phew!
