Now Playing: Mesa Cubscast, Kicking Back with the Cubs

Think you know everything there is to know about the 2013 Cubs? Think again.

Did you know Edwin Jackson could have been a real estate agent, Anthony Rizzo feels a kinship with Justin Timberlake, and Dave Sappelt has a little crush on a cartoon character?

Thanks to the World Baseball Classic, Spring Training is a few weeks longer than usual this season. As the spring slate drags on, everyone needs to blow off some steam. After a rain-shortened workout Wednesday, even manager Dale Sveum said, “It’s not bad to have a little breather,” from time to time.

Vine Line had some fun with the team to dig up a few facts you won’t find on the back of a baseball card. Check back later this week for more in our Kicking Back video series.

I have a bad feeling,hope I’m wrong but giving away Tony Campana, could be like giving away Lou Brock,Tony just needed one more hit per ten at bats to be the SHOW at the SHOW. A walk or a base hit was almost like a TRIPLE . You might be able to find a better hitter,but to find that speed will be more difficult..Goood Luck

The number of players who just needed one more hit per ten at bats to be a star, but never found it, is beyond measure. Trading Campana was a good bet.
