Zambrano looks good.

Zambrano looks great through the first 2 innings. He struck out the first 4 batters. Today could really be something special for big Z. Cubs are up 2-0.

He just struck out the side in the 3rd. 7 k's and no hits through 3 innings.

I havn't been on fogpog in a LONG time. First I would like to say that Zamby is just putting up domination and that is why I am posting right now.

Also just to say hi.

Through 5 he has struck out 10 and has given up 1 hit. His career high in strikeouts is 12. Cubs still up 2-0.

He matched his career high in Ks with 12 through 8 IP, giving up just 1 ER, 3 H in the win, 5-1.

Z has pitched great since the fight with Barrett. I dont think there is any way we should get rid of this guy, unless he says he is not going to resign with us.


Does anyone remember his debut? Cubs played a Doubleheader vs. maybe the Brewers. Juan Cruz threw a gem the first game. Z got lit up like a Christmas tree the second game. Evryone loved Juan.

Zambrano raised his arm angle to what it should be and that's what is helping him so much. Also his velocity has improved. Those two things with limited walks have led to his recent success.

" ... Does anyone remember his debut? ... "

Your post piqued my curosity. How did you you remember his first start ?

The fatal inning was the 4th :

For a kid of 20 years and some 80 or so days it wasn't that bad - he had been doing quite well . Heredia didn't help.

Was I close to being right- meaning was it vs. the Brewers. It seems like we were doing real good at the time and it was getting late in the season. I think our staff had a couple of injuries and we were forced to play a DH. He pitched the night game. I just remember whoever it was we played killed the Cubs that night. I dont think he got hit that hard- it seems like he walked a few and then maybe gave up a homer or something. I think we were battling with the Astros at the time and the Cards for 1ST place. It seems like Cruz went on and finished the year strong and there was no more talk about big Z for awhile.

You're memory is excellent :

Top of the 4th, Brewers Batting, Tied 0-0, Carlos Zambrano facing 2-3-4
--- 2 L Lopez Triple to CF (Deep CF)
--3 6 J Burnitz Walk R 1-3 4 R Sexson Single to CF (Short CF); Lopez Scores; Burnitz to 2B
O 12- 2 M Sweeney Bunt Groundout: P-2B/Sacrifice; Burnitz to 3B; Sexson to 2B
RO -23 3 J Hernandez [Jose - former Cub] Flyball: RF/Sacrifice Fly; Burnitz Scores
-2- 7 M Coolbaugh Walk
RRR 12- 2 K Brown Home Run (RF); Sexson Scores; Coolbaugh Scores
O --- 3 J Wright Strikeout Swinging
5 runs, 3 hits, 0 errors, 0 LOB. Brewers 5, Cubs 0.

(From the B-R link above)

I'm having trouble remembering who the K. Brown might have been ? I had to look it up it was Kevin Lee Brown the catcher (not the somewhat famous pitcher).
