In this morning's papers, Carlos Zambrano said his goal is to win the Cy Young Award. Gee, shouldn't Zambrano's goal be to win for his team? I don't recall any of our pitchers saying it's their goal to win the Cy Young Award. Each of our pitchers' goals is to repeat you know what, and they know that. And in today's game, the overrated Zambrano celebrated big time after Matt Merton caught the third out against the wall. Geez, I don't even think Bobby Jenks celebrated that much when we won the World Series!

This only confirms that Carlos Zambrano is an overrated showboating tool!

Well he didn't exactly get off to a stellar start today.

Tool? Yes

Showboating? Perhaps

Overrated? To a degree, though I do think if this guy got his head on straight he could be a much more effective pitcher.

Point well taken. I saw that too, and he just didn't seem to get it that that near-miss home run had anything to do with him. (Hello! You're the guy that served up the pitch!)

Well, no matter. The Cubs will be out of it by mid-June at the latest--even in the NL.

Adam Dunn, on the other hand made a fine case for an NL Gold Glove.

Yikes. :o:

And, BTW, I don't have a problem with a guy setting personal goals, too. It'd be one thing if it was September and the Cubs were in a pennant race and Fat Z said all he was thinking about was trying to win the Cy Young, but on Opening Day, hope springs eternal.

On MJH they were ripping into Zambrano for his celebration after Murton's catch. Said it was excessive.

Zambrano is the only quality starter on the active roster. Even if he wins 25 games (he won't), they still need to find 65-70 other victories.

Remember, St. Louis won 100 last year.

Put it this way, if Zambrano wins the Cy Young the Cubs will win more games anyways.

Kinda like how Sosa thought if he hit 60+ homers the Cubs will win more games?

This ******* is a pitching version of Sosa.

Sosa sneezes and hurt his back.
Zambo trolls on MLB boards and engages in cyber sex chat, and his elbow gets screwed up.

What the hell is wrong with a pitcher having personal goals? While there's nothing wrong with any players having personal goals, it's especially true when it comes to starting pitchers. Is he going to cost the Cubs games by trying to win? You're really reaching with this one.

He's a little crazy, but I'd take him in a second.

I wouldn't, ability to the contrary notwithstanding. The guy is just wayyyy too mercurial--happy one minute, pissed the next. Who needs it?

I agree and disagree. If I'm KW, I don't even bother with Zambrano because a) we have an overload of pitching anyways and b) this guy doesn't fit in with the team at all. But If I'm the GM of probably the other 27 teams in MLB with a hole in my rotation (I'm taking Oakland out too, because I think they're in no need of SP and Zambrano would not work there, either), I'd probably take a gamble.

Obviously, we have no need for him. To deny he's an excellent pitcher is just... well... dumb. That's not the point though. There's no problem with him setting that goal. I hope every pitcher we have has that same goal.

Yep, but when I see a post that says, "I'd take him in a second" on this site, I just assume that the poster is referring to the Sox. Silly ol' me!

Sure, if you're a lesser team and are ready to deal with him, fine. And while you're at it, why not go get Milton Bradley? :tongue:

You don't think Zambrano and Ozzie would get along? I think Coop could get this guy under control, but we don't need anymore pictures at the moment.

If you put it that way, I'd rather have him than Garcia.

God forbid a pitcher's animated. There aren't any volatile pitchers in MLB.

Giving up 16 runs in your home opener. In front of the POTUS no less. Another long season in Cincy.

Yeah, but Dunn hit a homer that tied the game. Looked good there for awhile.

If Zambrano said his goal was to win the Cy Young Award while on the Sox, Ozzie would tear him a new one. Meanwhile, here is the link (http://www.suntimes.com/output/cubs/cst-spt-cub03.html) to his comments. And in the interest of disclosure, Zambrano also said is to help his team go to the World Series. I missed that this morning, but he is still a tool.

I doubt it, but I really don't think he would fit in with the other 24 guys on the team.

Remember, St. Louis won 100 last year.

And as long as Rolen and Pujols stay healthy,they're a lock
(at least offensively) to win 98-100+ games again this season.:cool:

At least he's on the fast track to Cub-pitcher arm overuse, and might join Prior and Wood on "Brokearm Mountain" :D:
