Good news and bad news out of Mesa.

First the good news:  Carlos Zambrano and Carlos Marmol both looked good in spring action.  Zambrano faced the minimum in his 2 innings pitched.  He struck out 3 of the 6 batters he faced and did not allow a hit or walk.  Carlso Marmol also pitched a perfect inning – striking out 2 of 3 batters in the process.

The bad news:  The D’backs tagged the Cubs for 5 runs in the 4th inning to break the game open, en route to an easy 9-1 win.  More importantly, Milton Bradley, the Cubs big free agent signee still isn’t ready for game action.  He is dealing with a sore thigh muscle and the Cubs are being patient with Bradley.

Great – the one big splash the Cubs make this off-season is already dealing with injury issues.  Bradley has always had injury problems and let’s hope this isn’t an omen of bad things to come.
