Spring Training Positional Battlewatch: March 2, 2009

Chicago Cubs News

Carlos Zambrano looked thoroughly uninjured as he mowed down the D-Backs. I think the Cubs lost, though. On to the important stuff:


  • Neither Aaron Miles nor Mike Fontenot distinguished himself at the plate, but interestingly, both played a little shortstop.
  • Micah Hoffpauir had his first merely pedestrian game, with a double as his lone hit. Sure is getting a lot of playing time, eh?
  • Luis Rivas, who believe it or not, is competing for a bench spot, continues to sort of kind of hit adequately. Be afraid.


  • Joey Gathright, on the other hand, had a crummy day at the plate. Be relieved.
  • Youngster Mitch Atkins, and bullpen hopeful Angel Guzman got absolutely shit-kicked.
