Zambrano deserved to be pulled. He was ugly today.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

LOL, that's what I was thinking as well. Strange how fickle fantasy managers can be. :-b

But with 7 plus spread with only one out to go to get a win for Zam, you think he'd let him work his way through it. I'm all about watching the pitch count as well, but this wasn't a count issue. He should have pulled a Bobby Knight - not called a time out and let his players figure out how to get themselves out of a mess.

Not a pitch count issue? He was well over 100 pitches on opening day wasn't he? That seems a little extreme already, and it's only the first day! I think pulling him was the only option. Zam was really upset with the umpire, and Arizona was one swing of the bat away from making it a 3 run deficit. He did what he had to, I don't think Dusty cares how many "wins" Carlos gets.

Hell, I didn't know he was at the century mark already. If so, then I digress. I'd rather have a healthy Zam and a win for the team than a broken down chubby guy on the mound pitching my next game in a week.

LMAO, nice reconsideration. And yeah, I think he was at pitch 106 or something like that. He did not have his best stuff, as only about half of his pitches were strikes.

I thought that I heard that Zam was ejected for arguing balls and strikes with the umps.

He was ejected on his way off the field (when he was pulled by Dusty) for being an idiot. :-P
