In my humble opinion, the Cubs too many times in the last 101 years have gone to spring "training" with way too many players assured of starting jobs ans spots on the ROSTER. Just once it would be refreshinmg to see some competion for jobs and roster spots, just once!!! Some of our players, year after year, come in ouyt of shape knowing they will be in the "BIGS" no matter what. WHY? Last year SOTO should have been sent to the minorsto get his FAT, OUT, SHAPE self in shape to play MAJOR LEAGUE baseball. It teaches players a lesson!!!!!!!!!!

Thats why the Cubs should have kept Rich Harden because, Zambrano does not keep himself in shape, gets injured from time to time and mentally is a problem child. I lost a lot of faith in Zambrano for, the money he is making he should make it his business to be in excellent shape. Harden on the other hand, was a solid starter for the team last year. Lastly, I do not know much about Heath Bell but, if he's good we should grab him.
