Cubs ace Carlos Zambrano was sent demoted to Welles Park Little League following Wednesday's embarrassing temper tantrum and ejection against Pittsburgh.
Let's face the truth folks, this Cubs team as it is currently constituted is going nowhere. It was never more evident than Tuesday night when the team, especially the bullpen, blew a 5-0 eighth inning lead to the Braves in Atlanta, eventually falling 6-5 in 12 innings.
The tenure of Milton Bradley took another painful turn Thursday morning when the Cubs outfielder hurt his left calf while being treated for the right calf injury he suffered Tuesday night in Atlanta.
Although he's been invited to sing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" at Wrigley Field, hip hop/R&B star T-Pain won't be bringing his robotic funk to The Friendly Confines anytime soon.
Tuesday night's Cubs win in Houston was noteworthy for three reasons: 1. It was on at the same time as the NHL and NBA Finals, so only true die-hards were watching. 2. Ted Lilly pitched a gem and managed to leg out a triple. 3. Milton Bradley went 0-for-6, somehow stranding 24 runners in the process.
