About Last Night

I was as dismayed as anyone to see the Cubs’ normally solid starter Ryan Dempster walk seven men in last night’s Game 1 loss to L.A.

Granted, the rest of the Cubs weren’t much better, but they must put last night’s calamity out of their minds.

This evening (at the bizarre start time of 8:37 PM), the Cubs’ emotional powder keg Carlos Zambrano is pitching, and God knows fans will be anxious over which version shows up: the Zambrano who is nigh-untouchable, or the one who throws gopher balls to opposing hitters, and attacks Gatorade jugs in the dugout afterwards.

If it’s the latter tonight, all the hard work by the Cubs this past season will have been a waste.
