Zambrano Doesn't Like Gatorade

Score: Dodgers 7, Cubs 3, Carlos Zambrano 2 (Gatorade Buckets). Sure, Matt Kemp put the game away with two out in the seventh with a three run shot that triggered the Big Z Rampage, but the real winner were those coolers, still working after all that abuse. Gatorade needs to buy that footage for commercials on how tough their products are. Sign Carlos too. "We don't put our name on it, unless it's tough." -- Next Gatorade Ad (you heard it here first).

Great, Ludwick just put the Redbirds up 7-0 with a three run shot in the top of the second in Houston. Hmmm...

And now we get to ponder the wonders of Jason Marquis (3-3, 5.02 ERA, 1.66 WHIP, 34/27 (1.26) K/BB, 1.26 GO/AO) going up against Brad Penny (5-7, 5.45 ERA, 1.57 WHIP, 41/32 (1.28) KK/BB, 1.74 GO/AO) tomorrow, 7:05p CDT. Maybe it'll be a slugfest, and the Cubs can come out on top. Lefties can get to Penny (6.61 ERA, 2.14 WHIP, 3.11 GO/AO!!), so it's all about Fukudome and Edmonds. Too bad that's all the lefties the Cubbies have. Screw it, the Cubs aren't getting swept tomorrow night!! I mean, righties are clipping 1cent to the tune of 4.57 ERA, but only a 1.13 WHIP, and 1.22 GO/AO.

At least three in Wrigley are on the horizon, even if Mr. 400's coming to town.

Go Cubs!!
