Yeah, I was wondering about Zambrano's homer...how come he was hitting righty?

"I have a little discomfort in my left hand," Zambrano said. "It's nothing serious. In the National League, you have to do both. I have a decent swing right-handed and left-handed. That turned out to be the difference. I'm happy about that."


That's what he said after the game. He hit lefty his first time up, but switched after he struck out.

Marmol looks lost out there

Lou's clearly lost patience with him, too. He looked like he was minutes away from charging the mound and smashing Marmol's face in.

Lou needs to get a grip and learn to take the bad with the good when it comes to relievers. Despite Angel's hot streak, Marmol's still been the best Cubs' reliever by WXRL. Even when he's going well, the walks are a part of the package (though not to this extent). Really, I could see the 1-2-3 of Marmol, Guzman and Ascanio putting up collectively good seasons among them. There's no reason why a bullpen with those three guys, Gregg, Heilman and Patton shouldn't be decent, though not elite as the hope to performance ratio hasn't been that good with the latter three.

jason marquis leads the NL with 8 wins.

The crazy thing is, Marquis's W-L record more or less represents how he's pitched. He has 8 quality starts with game scores of 55 and up and 8 wins in those games. He's been going deep into the game in his wins; th one time he failed to go 7, he threw 6 2/3 innings, and has averaged 7.6. He has 4 games where he's given up 4 runs+, games scores of 32 and below, and those were all losses.

Guzman sure stunk up the joint tonight...

Pery out, Joshua in.

I adore Von Joshua, his work at Iowa has been nothing short of incredible. I liked Perry too though so who knows.

2.5 games out, starting pitching is firing on all cylinders, they're definitely not playing their best baseball. . . it's annoying, but i still believe better days are yet to come.

Reminds me of 2004-2006 all over again.
