    As the Cubs get into the heat of Spring Training, one main question remains--who will be the fourth and fifth starters in the rotation? Jeff Samardzija, James Russell and Casey Coleman are all young, but are they ready?

    Veteran sluggers Aramis Ramirez and Alfonso Soriano are coming off a 2010 season in which they both underperformed and if the Cubs will have success in '11, they will have to rely on the aging duo.

    These are all just hypothetical guesses, but that hasnt stopped anyone from linking Albert Pujols and the Cubs. Chairman Tom Ricketts was peppered with Pujols questions and the Cubs will keep an open mind.

    The Cubs expected big things out of Kosuke Fukudome when they handed him a 48 million contract. It hasn't worked out as planned. The Japanese outfielder has one season left to make things right.

    The Cubs expect to be anchored in Arizona for decades to come and hope to break ground on their new complex this fall. The park will take visual cues from Wrigley Field and will hold close to 15,000 fans.

    Since Ryne Sandberg's last game with the Cubs in 1997, the team has used seven different starting 2B on Opening Day. Blake DeWitt will try to stabilize that position and reach his No. 1 goal: winning a World Series.

    Speculation is already swirling about Albert Pujols possibly joining the Cubs in 2012. With Carlos Pena playing on a one-year deal, how does he feel about this? Patrick Mooney caught up with the first baseman.
