First off let me say I do not blame Carlos Zambrano and his comments to reporters after the game. While many of you consider this throwing a teammate under the bus, I think Zambrano is showing leadership and making certain that some players are held accountable. Zambrano is putting out there what everyone thinks, the Cubs are "embarrasing" plain and simple.
I will say mistakes come from the top and trickle down. Everyone is held responsible for the results this team is getting. From Tom Ricketts to Tyler Colvin to Mike Quade to Jim Hendry.... Everyone is at fault!
Here are just some mistakes-
- Marmol should have never thrown a slider to Theriot, he cannot hit the high fastballs!
- Koyie Hill does not belong on a ML team, thanks Hendry for that signing.
- DeWitt in LF and Colvin in CF... come on!!! Kids like Snyder and Campana need to play and Brett Jackson needs called up!
- Quade what are you doing first off calling Lopez to face Pujols? I know he is 0-12 against him but that was like 4 years ago. If you bring in Lopez then just walk Pujols and take your chances with the next hitter.
As you see plenty of blame to go around and I hope the comments from Carlos get looked at in a different light than the media is portraying it because for once I am on Z's side.
