It would be very Cubbish, if he actually got the no-no but was lost for the remainder of the season in the process. This really isn't the type of situation you want to have a guy who is on his first start back from a "tired arm."

First start back and if he keeps this up hes going to have 105-115+ pitches.

Exactly. It's weird to say but there is no worse point for a player or club to have a no-hitter going. You don't want to overuse the guy first start back from an injury but it's a no hitter you cannot take him out. I guess he will get ample rest time because the Cubs will clinch so early due to the lack of a Milwaukee Brewers baseball team.

And by the way does Zambo know he has a no hitter?

I didn't see this in the thread yet... but he has a no hitter through 8... does Lou let him go out there in the 9th even though this is his first game back after arm problems? Probably not the best thing for the Cubs to have him throwing a no-hitter because he may extend himself or over-throw and may re-injure himself... I hope he does it... it's nice to see no-hitters!

No- hitters are great accomplishments, but this was complete crap. The scenario changes completely if the Cubs were actually on the road instead of playing a second home game at Milwaukee?

Do cubs fans work on mondays or is traveling to milwaukee to watch night game habitual?

What I am saying is the Astros had to deal with this and that is absolutely horrible. The manager of the stros should seriously discuss this with MLB officials. They are in a race for the wild card and they are playing pivotal home games on the road.

If I was an Astro I would be absolutely livid right now.

I know that they usually cut in to show no hitters. There is no reason they couldn't have done a split screen or at least put a little box with the White Sox game in the top corner.

... and, as already been pointed out numerous times before in this thread, ESPN always does that, even when our very own Mark Buehrle made his bid for history.

No-hitters are special. They deserve special treatment.

No-hitters are special. They deserve special treatment.Actually, someone mentioned specifically that they didn't show Buehrle's final outs, chosing not to preempt a Bulls games. They did show Floyd's game that got into the 9th, but that was on a Saturday afternoon. I still don't know why there couldn't have been a box showing the Sox game in one corner of the screen, at least until the last out.

I just got back from the Sox games and have not read this entire thread except for the last page so I don't if it was mentioned that at the Sox game tonight there was no mention whatsoever of the no-no. People knew what was happening because we were getting text messages from friends who were not at the game. I find it funny that they never show Cub highlights when they show highlights from around baseball.

I was hoping that if they did announce the no-no, there would be dead silence in response. No cheering, no booing. Dead silence would have been too funny.

Tomorrow when I face the Cub fans I encounter every day, I will remind them that Buehrle had a no-no last year and our season did not turn out very well anyway.

You could also show them your game ticket to that Buehrle no-no game, as well as any of your World Series memorabilia.

Cub highlights shouldn't matter to Sox fans either. That's why they don't play them.

No help for anyone living in the Sox blackout area, which covers roughly all of Illinois and the neighboring 5 states.Archived games aren't blacked out.

Remind them that MB's was better (if they even know who he is), only one baserunner who he picked off. Also, since cubs last no hitter (1972) the Sox have had 3.

I detest that team, I was somewhere where both games were on, starting from the Soriano HR, that douchebag deserves to be plunked and plunked HARD, man how the game has changed. Besides starting at it, and extending his bat to pose, the piece of crap ****ing waved at the ball, no clearer example you can get of showboating. Just the whole fact that they got handed this home game still makes me sick, I was one of those people who doesn't rip on Selig for every problem that faces MLB, but he reached a new low with this, what a terrible commissioner.

By the way, dumb ESPN could've just gone to ESPN2, they have like 5 different channels, and we already know what happened with the Buehrle one
EXACTLY RIGHT....I have no problem with the cut in, instead just say the sox game will be on ESPN2 until the top of X inning...I know that I was flipping between WGN and ESPN anyways....

I was at the Sox game last night in section 544. This annoying cub fan was on the phone with his friend when Zambozo was going for the no hitter. When he gets the final out, this tool stands up in the middle of the game and starts yelling "Zambrano got a no hitter, zambrano got a no hitter, go cubs." Mind you he is in the first row and this is during a inning and he is not surrounded by ANY cub fans. While he is yelling he is flinging his FULL beer around so he must of douced at least 6 sox fans, including myself, in miller lite.

Lets just say he is lucky he didnt land on the club section.

Big Z's "stuff" was as good as I've ever seen it. Cubs would be wise to shut him and Harden down for the rest of these practice games(not sure why this strategy isn't used more often with power-pitchers). Now trade Z to the White Sox where he belongs/wants to be!

I understand why many fans dislike the guy, but I think he is everything that is good about the game, a true baseball character, and I'd be happy if he finds his way to the south-side in a few years... congrats Big Z!

Wow, I'm shocked the Cubbie lover is on here defending everything Cubs and northside and ripping on Sox fans as usual. Don't worry, I'm sure a Sox loss will come before the end of the year so you can rip on Kenny some more

I hate the ****ing Cubs. You people are just embarrassing yourselves, though.

Total busch league bull**** by ESPN. I don't care if you are cutting out of Baseball Tonight to show the other game(they have done it before), but don't cut out completely from another game. If they wanted to show the Cubs game, it should have been a split screen.


As has been noted many times already in this thread, ESPN ALWAYS cuts away for big moments in other games, not just no-hitters. I saw the last inning of Buehrle's no-hitter because of that. They also cut away for potential record-breaking at-bats, etc. No big deal.

Congrats to the big fella from the northside. It was a hell of a performance, but I am much more thrilled to see the sweep by our southsiders then to have witnessed part of the no-no by big Z. Very impressive though.

I love how after Buehrle's no hitter, he immediately runs to his teammates and Zambrano just kneels down and points to the sky. Haha. It just shows you the differences in those two.

That last AB was very '07 of Erstad. The guy bounced the ball to the plate the pitch before and then Darin helps him out by lunging across the plate at something 5 inches outside, hah. Not pretty.

Anyway. Congrats to Zambrano on a great game.

That Zambrano is latin and most latin players are pretty religious and always thank God?

Wow. Just wow. Some people need to get over the Cubs.

Zambrano's a good pitcher. He was/is a little bit of a headcase, but I think it is somewhat entertaining most of the times (and a little jagoffish sometimes). Congrats!

ESPN did not cut in for Buehrle's no-no. I am 100% sure. They broke in AFTER, to show a replay of the final out, but that's it.

In fact, here's some proof (straight from our threads) where many of us bitched about it...

Link (http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=86560)to thread about ESPN's coverage.

Link (http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=86536) to thread about the Bulls/Nets being on ESPN that night.

Link (http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=86556) to postgame thread where the following was said:
"#$%^& not having CSN. :mad:"

... and ...

"Always had faith my my boy Mark. AMAZING JOB! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And **** ESPN for showing NONE of it"

... and ...

"ESPN News had it in the ticker. ESPN standard was covering the Bulls/Nets game with playoff considerations. I can see them not flipping over. BUT AWESOME nonetheless."

... and ...

"Absolutely. Shame on ESPN. Just shameful."

... and ...

"ESPNEWS had Bruce Levine on talking live and they were showing the game line, but they didn't break in. ESPN is covering the final day on the NBA with serious playoff implications, so I can understand them not showing anything. ESPN2, however, is showing some boxing crap and still didn't break in."

I know if ESPN had broken away from Monday Night Football to show a no-hitter, NFL fans would be throwing firebombs in Bristol.

Then again, they had a game pulled away from them in the final seconds so a movie could start.

Shh! Or you'll have to join me as being labeled a "resident Cub-lover."

Some people just can't step outside their own hatred and clouded vision to see things objectively on occasion. I despise the Cubs and their wretched fanbase, despite living amongst them, but I try not to let my hatred get in the way of rational thought.

As I've said, many here who complain about the media and other aspects of Cubbie Love would have no issue with it if it were the Sox on that end. Then, it would somehow cease to be "unfair." That's just silly.

Of course they should replay it, it's a part of history. But breaking news? That should be reserved for updates on things that are important to real life. You know, stuff like hurricanes.
