The longer he's rested, the better he pitches. Maybe Lou should rest him 12 days after every start. He'd throw 15 no-hitters a year. ;-D

He'll still have horrible dead arm come playoff time, and Harden's arm will fall off too. Dumpster will go back to his old ways.

But I guess congrats to Zam. I just dont like the Cubs so I'm bitter. :-*

did anybody else, besides me, have Soriano and Zambrano on the bench due to the fear of the game being PPD??? this really hurt.

I sat Zambrano, but it was only because of the chance he might hurt my lead in ERA and WHIP this week. :-b :-b

I sat Zambrano because I directly affect his ability to throw complete games and, apparently, no hitters. I also have power over a Cubbies World Series win, but I'll only tell how for a price.

I hate the Cubs but have always liked Zambrano. He's a horse and will do anything it takes to win. He's the kind of guy I'd like my team to have. I believe he's had a couple of close calls with no-hitters before. Didn't he lose a no-hitter because some bum in right field lost a ball in the sun?

On August 22, 2003, Zambrano started against Curt Schilling and the Arizona Diamondbacks. While Curt pitched a strong game and recorded 14 strikeouts, it was Zambrano that received the attention as he took a no-hitter into the eighth inning. Zambrano got the first two batters out before Shea Hillenbrand broke up the no-hitter with an infield single down the third-base line. The play was very close at first, with TV replays indicating that the call may have been blown by first base umpire Bill Miller. Zambrano retired the next three batters (which would have been the final three outs) before giving up two more hits in the game.

On June 5, 2006 Zambrano made another bid for a no-hitter against the Astros in Houston. Zambrano had a perfect game go one out into the eighth inning before Preston Wilson hit a single.
“ I made one mistake today and I did pay for it. It cost me the no-no.

Zambrano came close to pitching a no hitter on June 16, 2007. However, he fell short of his goal in the eighth inning, when he failed to catch a ball that resulted in a single. Zambrano would later lose the game 1-0 on a solo home run by the Padres' Russell Branyan.[38]

You're referring to that last one. Zambrano was the bum who lost the ball in the sun. !+)
