Cubs | 3B Ian Stewart's job to win

Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum reiterated that third base is 3B Ian Stewart's (quadriceps) job to win this year, not to lose. However, INF Luis Valbuena, who hit a two-run home run in the intrasquad game Friday, Feb. 22, could create some valid competition, depending on how much time Stewart misses due to injury. "The guy had good winter ball, and obviously put a good swing on a ball today," Sveum said about Valbuena. "I'm not too concerned about Valbuena. I need to see him everywhere. If things work out that way, then yeah, he'll be playing third base quite a bit. First half of spring you'll see him a lot more at other positions."
