The Cubs have also been working on more aggressive base running this Spring. Second baseman Darwin Barney said, "We're trying to take advantage of anything we can. Being a good base-running team is something they've been preaching before spring training started, and everybody is really conscious about it." Sveum said, "I think they're (the team) really buying into it. We've scored some runs because of it. You make these mistakes early on, and now at the end of spring training, everybody is hovering and doing the right thing." Let's hope this will pay off during the regular season!
The Cubs will play their final Cactus League game tomorrow at 2:05pm CST against the Milwaukee Brewers at HoHoKam Park, where Travis Wood (who is headed to Triple-A Iowa) will start. Only 3 more days until Opening Day!
