    That was a better show than I expected from Zambrano and pretty much exactly what I expected from our offense. At least Marmol is getting the bugs out in game 1.

      ahhh well, we need to win tomorrow. pretty much the bottom line. Zambrano pitched pretty well today. webb just pitched a bit better.

        Webb is an outstanding pitcher. That takes nothing away from Zambrano though. He gave us a great outing and was probably our best hitter tonight too. Tomorrow's matchup suits us better.

          If we face Webb again, I'd probably start Murton for his patience at the plate despite the fact he's a righty. Be nice to work Ward in there as well against Webb, but then we'd have no centerfielder.

            i dont know that i can blame lou for pulling zambrano. putting in marmol? hes been lights out all year. didnt work out tonight, but as lou said postgame. you arent going to win if you only score one run on 4 hits.

            that was the story of the game. Webb was able to wiggle off the hook when in trouble.

              No Pay for Bad Base Running

              One play that may have changed the game was with 1 out, PH Connor Jackson flew out to CF Jaque Jones. As Chris Snider tagged 3B in an attempt to score, Jones throw to home was off line. I was wondering why Augie Ojeda didn't advance from 2B. During the replay, I saw Ojeda didn't return to 2B immediately and Jones could've doubled him off at 2B, negating Snider's run, if Jones hadn't already made up his mind to throw home.
              In the 1920's, Harry Heilmann led the AL with a .364 average. In addition, he averaged 220 hits, 45 doubles, 12 triples, 16 homers, 110 runs, and 130 RBI.

                I wouldn't of pulled Zambrano so early when he was pitching so well. And I'd be saying the same thing even if the strategy had worked..I'd just be saying it in a better mood.

                But what Lilly's record after a Cubs' loss? 10-1 or something? Tomorrow is ours

                  Looking back, I think I would have pinch hit for Zambrano when the bases were loaded even though Z hit the ball well 2 out of 3 AB's.

                    Maybe if Marmol had a third pitch that he can throw for a strike, such as a straight changeup, the hitter wouldn't have been able to sit on a fastball at 2-0 after seeing Marmol struggle with the slider. I'm not being critical of him--just noting where he could improve.

                      If we would have won that game I would have been very happy. Game 1 was the one game that the D'Backs should win...as long as we don't face Webb we have the upper hand. We have been killing lefties (Doug Davis) and Lilly has been great for us esp. following Cub's losses, so we can tie it up tonight and then go back to Wrigley to finish the job.

                        Hope you are right. Davis only gave up 1 run on 6 hits last time he faced us. Not real sure why Lou pulled big Z last night, he only had 85 pitches. I thought it was a bad move when he did it and even worse when they scored. Also I was surprise Lou let Big z swing away with no out and a runner on second. Seems like he should have laid down a bunt move the guys over, because Soriano hit a long fly that would have scored another run. Oh well, lets get em tonight.

                          Ah, how I regret that statement. He's been an Eckstein/Lemke type player much like Theriot.
