The set of active Reds have a pretty good combined record against Zambrano (.268/.384/.463), so maybe there's a chance of some offense tonight. I'm still not panicking, but I'm getting frustrated. This has not been a fun team to watch over the last 4 games. At this point, I don't care so much about wins and losses (as long as they win), I just want some entertainment value for my time spent.
Josh Fogg has got to be seeing what Belisle and Bailey are doing in the minors, right? I'm not convinced that either of them would necessarily out pitch Fogg right now, but you have to hope that their success in the minors will provide a little motivational boost to Fogg for this start. He's probably not pitching for his job quite yet, but he shouldn't feel comfortable, that's for sure.
It seems with Soriano going on the DL and Corey Patterson back in town, the Cubs are having Patterson-envy. That's why they've recalled Eric Patterson to take Soriano's place. Now I can finally play the "Our Patterson is better than your Patterson" home game I got for Christmas!
