Here's the latest news and notes. Also, some rumors.
Aramis Ramirez excercised his 14.6M option yesterday. He still has to file the paperwork and that has to be turned in my Thursaday at Midnight.
Ryne Sandberg will leave the Cubs organization. He will look for other jobs out there. I hope for the best for Ryno!
The Cubs will remain in Mesa, after the Mesa voters voted to keep the Cubs.
Brett Jackson has been sent him from the AZL because of an infection. He had a good run and showed that he has what it takes to make the majors.

The Cubs will add pitcher Chris Archer to the 40 man roster soon.
Xavier Nady is not expected to return next season.
Jim Hendry likes Nick Johnson and he could be a Cub, if his mkedical records are good. They will pursue him then.
The Cubs will have their eye on Kerry Wood to be apart of the pen next season.
The Cubs are expected to make a run for Adrian Gonzalez next season and XM radio says they have what it takes to get him. The Cubs will most likely have to depart with Vitters and JJ, among others.
That's it for now....
