No Gatorade Machine Is Safe From Zambrano's Wrath

Carlos Zambrano did not make it through his start against the Pirates today and neither did the Gatorade dispenser in the Cubs dugout. Carlos gets ejected, but it's always the electrolytes that have to pay the price. » 5/27/09 6:30pm 5/27/09 6:30pm

Carlos Zambrano Needs A Timeout

The Big Z is going on the 15-day DL with a bad hamstring. Should Cubs fans panic? Should they start beheading farm animals? Or get drunk and embrace the Jeff Samardzija Era. [Sun-Times] » 5/04/09 6:15pm 5/04/09 6:15pm

Carlos Zambrano Mows Your Hitters Down

A game that was merely a whisper this morning » 9/14/08 10:28pm 9/14/08 10:28pm has turned into a primal scream from the massive Cubs ace, Carlos Zambrano.

No Way Will The Cubs Blow It This Time ... Uh Oh

Time to worry: When your team has lost four straight at home during the stretch run of the division race. Time to really worry: When your manager says "If he can pitch, he'll pitch.

Finally, The Carlos Zambrano Story Can Be Told

We're still reeling a little bit from the news that Carlos Zambrano is the subject of an inspirational biography.

Carlos Zambrano Needs A Time Out

And THAT'S What Carlos Zambrano Thinks

If you are fortunate enough to root for a team that has an intense rivalry, you probably have someone on the opposing team you raise your level of hate for. Red Sox fans have it for Jeter and A-Rod; Patriots fans have it for Peyton Manning; Raiders fans have it for the rest of humanity. As a Cardinals fan, we've… » 2/13/07 10:30am 2/13/07 10:30am
