Sure the Cubs suck, but it ain't Zambrano's fault
  • Hell, with five homers in 66 at bats, he's probably their best hitter as well.
  • He's now 15-6 (.714) for a team that may lose 100 games. (61-89 .407, 46-83 .357 when Zambrano does not get the decision.)
  • He's .357 above his team. The all-time example of a great pitcher on a bad team would probably be Steve Carlton on the 72 Phillies, who was .461 over the team. The team went 59-97 overall, a bit worse than the current Cubbies, but Carlton never even noticed that they sucked, finishing 27-10 with 30 complete games. His winning percentage was .730. When he was not involved in the decision, the team's winning percentage was .269, almost as bad as the legendary 1962 Mets. Carlton's 27-win season for one of the worst teams in history is often listed as a candidate for the most incredible pitching accomplishment in baseball history.

Weekend Box Office Results for September 15-17, 2006
  • The new releases took the top four spots, but with no results to write home about. The worst performer relative to expectations was Brian DePalma's The Black Dahlia, which barely cleared ten million, compared to expectations in the mid teens. It will struggle to finish over thirty, compared to a budget of fifty.
  • The Last Kiss may or may not finish fourth, depending on the corrected take Monday. As of these estimates, it is only $2,000 ahead of the #5 film.
  • The hold-overs generally did well, with all but Hollywoodland exceeding expectations.
  • The weekend was up about 13% from last week's disaster, but was still some dozen points below the comparable weekend last year.

Bill Maher - New Rules - 9/15. This is funny. He seems to be back in the groove.
