The fact that he looks great until giving up a few bad at bats (and basically falling apart) is a good sign. At least he's not injured or suddenly forgot how to pitch. He'll get in the groove soon enough.
Yeah well as he was melting down today he got so frustrated on the mound he threw one behind the back of Carlos Lee (who has always killed Zambrano and hit a homer off him today). Not the thing to do when you are having problems. He got warned and never did get an out in the 5th.
He left with the bases juiced after giving up 6 and the Cubs pen remarkably only let one more score. It could easily have been 9 and not 7 earned runs. You have to wonder about a guy that breaks a bat over his leg in one start and then starts to throw at people in another. Hey Carlos, how about you throw strikes and get people out. It is not like you don't have the ability to do so.
