The St. Louis game did air...  In fact it's on RIGHT NOW on Fox Sports...   And will be replaying later on Fox Sport Midwest on DirectTV (FSMW)  Cubs game is not on.

Has anyone noticed Travis D' Arnaud seems to not be as advertised? I know he's hit well in the Minors, but he looks terrible. If you can get production at Catcher it's a bonus for most teams, but we were counting on it. I don't see it. He looks very small too. I'm having nightmares of Josh Thole.

Familia has looked great so far this ST. He's throwing 97, 98 with a nasty breaking ball. I think the back end of the BP is gonna be pretty good with him and Parnell.

MLB channel has SF vs Mariners and Nick Franklin playing short, real nice diving play flipped to second for force. Mets scouts there, Yanks, Tigers to.

Direct TV--Anybody know what channel # WGN is?

Well I get wgn on my service, and as long as they don't cut away for the Bulls, hockey, or anything else more important in the world today, it's a good station to have!

I don't think the game is broadcast on WGN. It's not on the cubs schedule to be televised.

I looked it up it's is on Comcast Sportsnet Chicago not WGN-TV though It may be on WGN radio. It should be on MLB.TV

I am hoping that Meija comes out in shutdown mode; he is the player that I am most interested to see how he performs this year. innings limit or not, if he stays healthy, he will show whether or not he is a contended for the future rotation.

Wow. Look at all those teams clamoring to sign up Wonderful Wally and his side-kick Valdespin. I guess they must know something we don't.

Why is it that Chicago is airing these games instead of the mets showing off their AAA facility? You would think they would send GKR there and have all sorts of segments about the park, the 51's fans, if they have a mascot, etc.

What is WGN??

@adam Im not one to jump to conclusions, especially when he hasn't had a fair shot... but, I don't see what everyone else is seeing either. I wouldn't be shocked if that Plawecki kid ends up being the better Major Leaguer.

I agree 100% that he hasn't been as advertised. He has sucked! But like what also has been said, we should give him his fair chance in the bigs.. hopeful and skeptical

Let's give him a legitimate chance before we call him a bust. It's unwise to get worked up over spring training hitting numbers. it's also hard to believe that so many people could have been entirely wrong about this guy.

@hrvwlzthor  I agree about the bullpen. Their usually a crapshoot, but it looks promising. Of course, Vic Black got lit up yesterday, but I like Parnell, Rice, Torres, etc. I also wouldn't be opposed to have Montero as the long reliever until Dice-K or someone else gets hurt.

Low 300's but my guide says its not in. AFV is on at that time

The Game is on CSN Chicago you can watch it through MLB.TV. It is not on WGN or WGN America.

@eric88 307. Though it's not listed at 4 p.m. in the guide, so I'm not sure the above post is accurate.

@joe21  Agreed.  I believe strongly in Mejia and want to see him dominate and get this 5th rotation spot.

@Chris Kujawa  It's a Cubs thing and tradition to go to Vegas and do a weekend series with usually a cactus league team.  It's of promoting Vegas tourism and I think they chose the Mets this year because of the AAA connection.  So it's a total Cubs thing with their cameras and broadcasters.

 Chicago's version of TBS.  It's 307 on DirecTV if you get that.

@1harris1  It can and has happened... a lot historically. Offensively he will most likely not be Piazza, but based on his minor league numbers he could be like Carlos Santana or where Wieters has settled in..


.250-.270 average 20-30 HR. I think he's a better overall batter and will get on base more than Wieters.

@adam @hrvwlzthor  I liked the wiley journeyman Dana Eveland yesterday.  He's been around a while but he's not ancient and he's a lefty reliever who pitched two scoreless well-crafted innings yesterday. I was impressed. He could be the work-horse out of the pen and lord knows with starters only going 5 or 6 innings they need some old mules to burn the innings.

I don't think so. I think the other cubs split squad game is on csn

@eric88 I'm pretty sure it is NOT on WGN.  During yesterdays telecast they showed upcoming baseball on WGN for remainder of ST and today's game was not on there.

That makes sense then. Thank you for clearing that up.

I assume nobody in Chi Town Is Watching that. Any chance of seeing it here in CT? (Streamed?)

@Mark Kelly @1harris1  I think 20-30 hrs is a major leap of faith, especially at Citi Field. I'd be thrilled if he put up Carlos Ruiz numbers at this point. But he looked terrible last year, and he looks worse this year. I'm not ready to call him a bust, and the trade was worth it because of Syndegaard, but there's a lot of fans and media who seem to think this guy is a "can't miss" guy, I don't.

Not sold on Lannon yet, sounds like the name of a deodorant :)

hrvwlzthor

@rico @adam@hrvwlzthorYep I agrree he looked good but their gonna go with Lannon as the second lefty which I like and he could also spot start and long relief. I would really like if Montero gets a shot in the BP.

@tierlifer @eric88It's a blog, so there is no real fact-checking or content editing. Lazy. Sloppy. No worse than Yahoo! or MSN blogs that masquerade as news. But, you can't count on any of them to get all the facts right.
