Zambrano leaves the game, possibly an injury, top of the 2nd.

EDIT: lower back soreness

Was the Gatorade cooler injured as well? :tongue:

Seriously, I hope he's OK.

If so, there goes that trade. Yikes - what a miserable Chicago baseball year thus far.

The trade nobody was going to make.

A possible trade of Zambrano to another team.

Must've given up a bunch of runs.

Must've given up a bunch of runs.The Giants are up 1-0 in the 8th. He did give up 2 hits and 2 walks in 1+, though.

I thought perhaps there were some reports of a serious trade rumor, rather than just idle speculation.

10 innings later, the Giants lead 2-1 in the bottom of the 13th.

Soto walks it off big time. The Wrigley faithful go home drunk and happy.

Cubbies win on a comeback & walkoff today. That's two in a row. The KoolAid will begin to flow, any Sox fan heading to Wrigley should now expect to encounter even more loudmouth Cubbie Clowns than what showed up at USCF.

Cubbies win what 14 more and they'll be at .500.

Here's to hoping that the White Sox rain on the :scrubs parade.....:gosox:

I honestly believe (http://www.bleedcubbieblue.com/2011/6/30/2253289/cubs-bullpen-shines-geovany-soto-wins-game-with-walkoff-hr#)

That if the Cubs win three in a row, they will rattle off 5 or 6.

Response?

That would be nice. (http://www.bleedcubbieblue.com/2011/6/30/2253289/cubs-bullpen-shines-geovany-soto-wins-game-with-walkoff-hr#)

Especially since, if they did it tomorrow, that would mean sweeping the Sox.

I honestly believe that if the Cubbies rattle off 5 or 6 wins they'll still be 7 or 8 games under .500.

Yes, I know. Of course there is no Cub fan alive that has a clear memory of the last time their team played in a real World Series. I am looking forward to getting this "Crosstown Classic" over with. As under-achieving as the White Sox have been this year, I don't even want them sharing a field with that over-rated and pathetic franchise. And beware of food poisoning at the rooftops. What tradition!

I looked up some trivia material the other day. Heinie Zimmerman died in 1969. He was probably the last living member of the 1908 team to have been in uniform when the Cubs won the World Series. A couple of other guys lived longer, by a year or two, but I doubt they were on the World Series roster.

And I wonder how many are even left from the last World Series appearance in 1945? How many fans are left? That streak is going on seven decades. Now that's a tradition.

CSN just showed Zambrano throwing the 1st pitch at 2night's Bandits gm... hours after he shut it down in the 2nd inning at Wrigley..UNREAL



Zambrano sure does make some querstionable choices, doesn't he?

Hell, if they win today, it would be the first time they've won three in a row all year.

I don't think this is a questionable choice at all. He chose to honor his commitment/obligation to throw one softball 40 ft. If he chose to go play in a celebrity softball game or some golf outing, yes maybe this is an issue. But no one should be criticizing him for this decision.

From the look of that post, he's already on drugs

The guy gets pulled from a game he started because of back problems, and he throws a "softball" pitch at another baseball, and he shouldn't be criticized? Please. I think he would've been given a pass for not throwing out that first pitch, no matter how easy it was. :rolleyes:

Zambrano has been placed on the 15-day DL. I wonder if his throwing that first pitch before the Bandits game had anything to do with it? I mean, it meant nothing, right? he didn't seem too happy with the decision either.
