You probably know by now of the Cubs victories over the Giants in the past 2 days, yesterday at Hohokam 6-2, and today in Scottsdale 3-2 led by the solid pitching of Big Z and Wade Miller. So I won’t go into the games any further and instead give you something you haven’t seen– this morning’s batting practice at Hohokam before the team headed to Scottsdale for today’s game. A couple themes emerged from this mornings practice, and I captured some of it on video for you.
It was give Henry Blanco a hard time at the park day, with Lou Piniella leading the way. You need to listen to the audio carefully to catch most of it, but mainly he was giving Henry a hard time about his lack of hitting this spring. The guys were loose and having a good time this morning, most of this is shot around the batting cage. Some video of Alan Trammell working with Ronny Cedeno on glove skills, and Blanco trying to redeem himself with a fielding contest at shortstop against D-Lee.

I didn’t do a lot of editing so you could get the feel of being there, it runs about 11 minutes 30 seconds. It will take a little longer to download than the others because of the larger size.
