Fallen Angel

Sadly, Angel Guzman's infatuation with success came to an end today, as he was rocked for 3 runs and 6 hits in an inning and a third. He also walked in a run with the bases loaded. Too bad for Angel, but I don't think that is the last we will see of him. He took so lumps, but he wasn't going to make the team anyway, so he should have plenty of time to shake it off in AAA.

However, if we ignore the offense's poor showing this afternoon, it was an otherwise successful day despite a 3-2 loss. Zambrano went 4 scoreless inning, extending his spring shutout streak to 12 innings. How excited am I for the season to start and Zambrano to pitch? (very). Will Ohman had an impressive outting, striking out the only two men he faced. Non-roster invitee Chad Fox was equally excellent, striking out the side to close out the game.

And very exciting was another shutout inning for Borowski. I don't know about his velocity, but the effectiveness seems to be there.

On offense, the Cubs had a whopping 3 hits. One for DuBois, one for Hairston, and one for Blanco. All very exciting hits, I'm sure. Happily we don't have to face the Angels in real-life.

So, for the final lefty position, I think it is between Ohman and Randolph with the wildcard being Hendry and his wheelin'-dealin' ways.

The Cubs will play the Sox tomorrow on Comcast Sports Net, although the broadcasters will be the White Sox announcers Hawk and DJ. If you watch, I would recommend WGN radio for the audio.
