Big Z Reminds the World That He is the Best Hitting Pitcher in Baseball

Just a quick recap from last night's 11-3 butt kicking the Cubs gave the D-Backs. Basically it was the Carlos Zambrano show last night. His pitching was okay he didn't have his best stuff, but worked through it and tossed 7 strong innings. It was his bat that shined last night. A single, a double to the deepest part of the park that was a foot away from being a homer, and then just for fun he hit an actual homer. Good times all around. Soriano and Fontenot also hit homers, with Milton Bradley adding two base hits. Perhaps the offense is coming around.

In a couple hours the Cubs get the honor of facing Cub killer Doug Davis. Davis has a 3.52 ERA in his career against the Cubs. Ryan Dempster will try and throw strikes today against a lineup that loves to swing and miss. Fukudome will get the day off against the lefty, meaning Reed Mantle starts in center. Soriano in left and Milton in right. Derrek Lee should return today, Aramis might be going to the DL. Finally Carlos Marmol is 100% and ready to go when needed.

Go Cubs!
