And I predict Wazmo Nariz will be an Oscar contender for his starring role in “Checked-Out: The Whitney Houston Story”.
When this idea was mentioned – minutes before the 2012 Cubs went through their first formal workout for pitchers and catchers on Sunday at Fitch Park – Garza predicted big things for his former teammate.
“I’d love to get compared with Zambrano on the field, the way his numbers were, the way he threw the ball,” Garza said. “He’s one hell of a pitcher. But that guy – I tell you what – he’s going to have one hell of a year. I kid you not – he’s going to go out there and go down to Miami and surprise a lot of people. His stuff is still electric. It still bottoms out.
“I wouldn’t be surprised to see him in the Cy Young race (this) year. I kid you not. He’s got (good enough) stuff and I think just playing with Ozzie, getting his own comfort zone, he’s going to have one hell of a season. I wish nothing but the best for that guy.”
