The Buzz: What’s your favorite water activity?

The weather’s been steamy in Chicago lately, so featured in the August issue of Vine Line, we asked a few Cubs players how they most like to spend their time on the water.

“I’d say fishing. I’ll fish for anything, but mainly we bass fish. We have a pond near our house in Texas that’s stocked with fish.”

Lou Montanez, OF

“I boat and fish a lot in Miami. Shallow water fishing, flu fishing or saltwater fishing. I’m pretty addicted to it. I have a lot of equipment- but most of it was probably a waste of money. My wife tells me that at least.”

Jeff Samardzija, RHP

“Uh, I snowboard. It’s frozen water, I guess. I can ski and wakeboard, but I’m just really not that good at it. My water sport is more throwing an anchor out and floating around on the water.”

The Buzz: What musical act would you like to see play Wrigley Field?

Former Beatle Paul McCartney tours Wrigley Field for two nights on July 31 and Aug. 1, and with the upcoming Music Issue of Vine Line hitting your mailbox soon, we asked four Cubs who they’d most like to see rock the Friendly Confines. Subscribe or give a gift today.

Reed Johnson, OF
“I’m a big Pearl Jam guy. I enjoy Eddie Vedder loving this organization. I think that means a lot as well. We were fortunate enough to see him solo a couple years ago at a small venue.”

Sean Marshall, LHP
“I’d like to see Kings of Leon. They’ve been playing some good music for a while—and the last couple years, songs like ‘Closer.’”

Randy Wells, RHP
“I’m more into smaller, not-so-mainstream groups. I’d like to see [country act] Randy Rogers Band. They’re blowing up now, though. I’d probably like to see the Eagles.”

Darwin Barney, IF
“Honestly, I’ve never been to a concert before. My wife and I are trying to figure out a good time to go, but we would like to see Coldplay or The Fray. I think they’d be awesome concerts.”

The Buzz: What’s your favorite cookout food?

The upcoming June 2011 issue of Vine Line features Koyie Hill and Sean Marshall grilling up High Plains Bison steaks and burgers for a group of Cubs minor-leaguers. So with Memorial Day and cookout season right around the corner, we asked four other Cubs what they’ll be grilling this year. Subscribe or give a gift today.

“My girlfriend’s from Tennessee, and her grandma cooks a whole meal by herself: ham, turkey and sweet, fried corn. In Florida, the only time we would cook out like that is Thanksgiving.”

John Grabow, LHP
“Carne asada tacos. I usually make homemade salsa, guacamole. I love to grill. That’s one of my favorite things to do in the off-season, especially on football Sundays.”

Jeff Baker, IF/OF
“I’m a hamburger-and-hot dog-on-a-grill guy. It’s about the only thing I can cook. Ketchup and relish, the more relish the better. Then go jump in the pool.”

Alfonso SorianoAlfonso Soriano, OF
“In the Dominican, it’s tropical food: rice and beans and chicken. So that’s what I like in the summer. And mangoes, too.”
