The Tribune article (Reg. Req.) on Todd Hollandsworth's return to the team is interesting both for getting a sense of club thinking on the outfield next year, and the situation regarding the battling trainers who were overwhelmed with Cub injuries last year. They've also got a "Where Are they Now?" piece on the 2003 playoff squad, demonstrating that only one infielder and one outfielder from that championship team remain on the Cubs for 2005.

The Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser has an account of a settlement between Jennie Patton and the Cubs over a sex discrimination lawsuit. The former part-time scout for the Cubs sued the organization for failing to promote her because she is a woman.
