What looked to be a towel wrapped in tape was chucked at Sosa after he struck out to lead off the ninth. Funny.

Would have been funnier if it was cork, or if that towel wrapped with tape had hit him....

Where's the outrage at those Arizona thugs?
I'll wait for Mornotti's "Arizona Scum" piece tomorrow morning.

It's obviously one of those "Scum Sox" fans making the trek to Arizona to hassle the game's diplomat as he propels America's team to a delicious World Championship.

It was probably a transplanted Chicagoan who did the throwing.

On a side note, showboat Zambrano lost his no-hitter with 2 outs in the 8th on an infield single...Hahaha! The batter looked to be safe, but tough **** Cub fans. He didn't even get the shutout.

I noticed watching the post game interview that Zombrano already speaks superior English to the diplomatic one. Does he just not bother to learn the language, or is he just that dense and stupid that he can't?

I don't know the hometown or where Zombrano grew up, but most player from Latin America learn to speak English in clubhouses and TV form what I have read. The teams don't provide them with any English tutelage, which in my opinion is a bad move on Baseball part. Since the better a player can come across on a interview the more the fans will like him, the more they like a player, the more they buy stuff with his likeness on it and the more they will support the team.

Even funnier if a brick was wrapped up in it.

Be careful, there are a few Zambrano lovers around here. "He's not a showboat, never has been."

A lot of US-raised professional athletes who never went to class since 6th grade, hire language and speech coaches and even tutors, once they get some cash in their pocket, and they do remarkable work. Often the agents hook them up with this.

It couldn't have been a Sox fan, because otherwise the object would have hit Sammy right in his steroid-filled face.

It would be tough to miss that steroid bloated head.
