Cubs Notes: Ross to catch Lester -- on Friday

MESA, Az. -- It's not the most important question in Chicago Cubs camp -- far from it. But who catches Jon Lester on opening night and throughout the season is an ongoing query for manager Joe Maddon this spring. He has the lefty Miguel Montero or the righty David Ross to choose from. If somehow, someway Welington Castillo is still around, that further complicates matters. Don't count on that latter option being an issue, though. Naming Lester as the Day 1 starter on April 5 was an easy call.

Samardzija says he's ahead of schedule

GLENDALE, Ariz. – Jeff Samardzija loved every minute of his first game action with the Chicago White Sox, even if it was just an intersquad game, and even though he did give up two runs in his first of two innings of work. The first-year White Sox starter did admit to looking down at his uniform top Tuesday, just to confirm it was real, but he has always had an appreciation for his line of work no matter if it was with the Chicago Cubs, the Oakland Athletics or now on the South Side.

First game back step toward Stanley Cup goal for Kimmo Timonen

CHICAGO -- Kimmo Timonen reflected Monday on his nearly year-long journey back to hockey for 98.8 seconds, the amount of time it took for Jim Cornelison to sing the national anthem at the United Center. Timonen was told in August he had blood clots in his lungs and right leg, and there was a chance he wouldn’t play hockey again. Timonen followed his doctor’s orders for treatment and never gave up. His hope and perseverance were the essential precursors for him wearing a Chicago Blackhawks’ uniform Monday, hearing Cornelison sign the national anthem while being supported by the cheers...
