Here is your guide to today's spring training games, as well as a look at some of yesterday's games that most Valley baseball fans actually care about (sorry, Mariners fans, there's nothin' here for you unless your boys happen to play against the Diamondbacks, the Dodgers, or the Cubs):
Arizona Diamondbacks: The D-backs got banged up by the Oakland Athletics yesterday, losing 7-3. Mark Reynolds' juicy, new $14.5 million contract seems to be paying off because after signing the deal prior to the game, he hit his second home run of the spring.
Chicago Cubs: The Cubbies lost 7-3 to the Los Angeles Dodgers today as Manny got all "Manny" on the lovable Chi-town losers. Manny Ramirez hit a two-run home run in the first inning and even did something a little un-Manny: Play solid defense. Manny robbed Tyler Colvin of extra bases with a running catch at the base of the left field wall.
Los Angeles Dodgers: See above.
