    Got a tweet from Gordon Wittenmyer (Sun Times @cst_cubs)...

    Ramirez is day to day with a strain. No DL.

    Bradley still day to day, but not playing.

    Marmol had an MRI which revealed a "grade 1" strain. Will throw bullpen Monday, possibly midweek return.

    This isn't good.

    Today we have Fontenot @ 3rd, Reed Johnson in CF, and Miles @ 2b.

    Soriano in the 3 hole again today.

    I'm really not liking the start to this season.

    Wow... just got another tweet...

    Zambrano and Koyie Hill are taking grounders @ 3rd base.

    Hill was a VERY GOOD third baseman in college... He didn't start catching untill the minors.

    Thanks for that info... I didn't know that.

    With our luck Soto will get hurt and Zambrano will end up at third... that would be something.

    I got to watch Koyie develop as a catcher, those first couple of years were tough to take...

    I played against him in college and have hung out with him quite a bit. He and my brother came up through the Dodgers organization at the same time/levels.

    Yeah, D Lee left in the first inning with a neck strain and then Soriano got beaned in the side of the head later in the game. He stayed in the game, though. Yikes...
