The CCO Radio returns for a President’s Day edition with Brian and Shaun discussing a variety of Cubs topics from pitchers and catchers reporting to the latest on the Brian Roberts trade rumors to Kosuke Fukudome’s arrival in Mesa. Despite a few technical difficulties, the theme of the third installment of the CCO Radio can simply be described with one word….excitement.
The remainder of the position players are set to report to camp today while two of the Cubs big three reported on Sunday. Alfonso Soriano made an early appearance for the second year in a row and Derrek Lee also reported a day early. Read on for the latest from Day Four of Camp Lou and the third episode of the CCO Radio.

News from Day Four of Camp Lou
- Alfonso Soriano’s health has been questioned over the recent weeks. He told reporters on Sunday afternoon he thinks his “legs are good.“
- According to a report from Cubs.com, Lou Piniella would like to leave Mesa with two lefties in his bullpen. Neal Cotts could join Scott Eyre if he is able to return to form from 2005.
- Piniella is projecting Geovany Soto to catch between 120 to 125 games this year.
- Kerry Wood is in camp and healthy, he says. Despite being very successful in the bullpen at the end of last season, Wood does not have a save in the big leagues.
- Not a Rookie: Felix Pie by John Sickels at Minor League Ball.com is a very good read and provides optimism….plus a little advice.
