CHICAGO -- With a revamped front office and new manager, there is a renewed sense of hope at this year's Chicago Cubs fan convention.
Fans hoping the team would be filling its power void with the addition of Prince Fielder, however, had those wishes shot down on Saturday.
"There haven't been any discussions with us for Prince, that's just not going to happen," newly installed manager Dale Sveum told a room full of fans at a question and answer session Saturday. "We have our first baseman in Bryan LaHair and [Anthony] Rizzo waiting in the wings as well. We're doing OK with big power left-handed hitters right now. "
