turns 24 today.
So here's a birthday wish to our favorite web-surfing, muttering, gesticulating, switch-hitting, complete game-throwing, goateed behemoth of a perpetual-Cy Young Award contender.
We Love Ya, Z. For some birthday reminiscences, how about these....
Remember when we wondered who would be better, Zambrano or Cruz?
Remember the first time we discovered Z was a switch-hitter?
Remember Z retiring Barry Bonds in an especially tense series in 2003, Z getting all excited, and Barry sulking about it?
Here's a question: what should we get Z for his birthday?
