The announcers were saying that they thought it was a cramp.

They say it is a "forearm cramp". But he looked in some real pain when they took him out.

In the 5th, he had problems with it, Dusty left him in after throwing 100+ pitches.

Let him go back out in the 6th, after throwing 115 in the first 5 innings.

During the 6th after 123 pitches, he has the "cramps" again but this time he looked like he was in some real pain.

Now I'm not saying pitch count had anything to do with it. Just showing that he had worked a lot in those innings, more then normally. And for Dusty to leave him out there after he has worked so much I thought was a very bad move. Who knows he could of further hurt himself in the 6th. Zambrano is a young kid that should be handled with more care then that in my mind.

Agreed cramps can be bad and it might just be that. Zambrano seems to be a very tough pitcher, so to see him the way he was when he was hurt ... just makes me think something more then a cramp is wrong with him. But I could be wrong and I hope I am for Zambrano's sake.

Still wasn't a good move by Dusty either way.

They also said that Sosa's bat was not corked and it was rotted wood....

On the Dusty Baker show before the game he did mention that he needed some solid innings out of "Big Z" today. With the next off day on Thursday, he was playing for the long haul.

He also mentioned how the naysayers will second guess him no matter what. Talking about pulling Prior yesterday, he brought up how people criticized him for wearing down his arm last year. So he pulls him yesterday and people complained when Mercker gave up the 3-run dinger.

Don't worry Dusty I'm still with you: the important part is they won both games!
