The Cubs have seen the best and worst of Zambrano so far this year - he's been brilliant and unhittable in some starts, wild and certainly fallible in others. And throughout he's of course been ever emotional. Which Z will it be tonight though?

radio rahim is dead

argh...blanco's three stooges impersonation and patterson/dubois both misplaying a single fly ball are all that separates carlos from having el perfecto through 4.

also, this ump's strike zone is TINY for both teams so far. anyone else agree? let's hope carlos doesn't blow a fuse at an ump on a key call later.

but don't get me wrong, i'm not a "carlos needs to chill out and act mature" guy. i wish more people were firey like him. ok now i'm officially rambling

I'll take the brilliant and unhittable Z for $500.

is there a more grim proposition in a situation where any kind of contact probably wins the game than patterson vs. gagne??

"is there a more grim proposition in a situation where any kind of contact probably wins the game than patterson vs. gagne??"

Sure. Having Jeromy Burnitz sac bunt.

Once again, Dusty aids the Cubs in their descent into stupidball.

this is the third time zambrano has gone at least 7in and allowed 1 hit, hes 1-0 with 2 no decisions

neife just singles in b-rat

Say What?? A good bunt and the Cubs score in the 9th. And oh yeah...he bunts Holly in teh 10th in the exact same situation and guess what...he gets it down good and the Cubs score....

In Dusty We Trusty!!!!!!!

what I don't understand is why corey doesn't bunt with 1 out and a runner on third. he's fast enough to beat it out.

All's well that ends well but I would have loved to have gotten big Z the win. My most favorite tidbit from tonight's telecast: Michael Weurtz is tied for the team lead in wins.

That's ... not a good thing.

Back in 1966, Dodger reliever Phil Regan earned the nicknsame "The Vulture" because he went 16-1 by relieving Koufax, Drysdale or Osteen after one of them had pitched a great game, and then maybe the Dodgers push across the winning run in the bottom of the 9th and Regan gets the win and Koufax, Drysdale or Osteen get a no-decision.

Michael "The Vulture" Wuertz is on a pace to win 12 games this year.
