OK, so Zambrano is not too terribly thrilled with his new setup man role, buuuut…it’s hard to argue with success. I mean, it’s not impossible to argue with success, but pretty hard. And even though Big Z struggled a bit at first (as predicted here), he settled down and did what the Cubs are paying him almost $19M this season to do. So, it looks like it’s working out, which is get hitters out. (as not predicted here)
However, he actually has nothing to do with the above clip which shows the walk-off walk followed by a rousing rendition of ‘Go Cubs Go’. The reasons I added that part are because 1. I still love that song every time I hear it (my ringtone, btw…so, umm…I guess not every time) and 2. If you watch closely, you’ll see a guy celebrating in the upper deck wearing a #21 ‘Colvin’ jersey and that’s the kind of die-hard fan who deserves a mention.
