Where are all the haters saying Big Z is a fat waste of a pitcher? The only reason the haters don't like this guy is beacuse he's not on their team. Big Z is a quality pitcher that will lead the Cubs to the promised land!

WhiteSox fans realize that if the Cubs had had Z, Harden and Soriano for the series at the Cell, the Cubs would likely have taken 5 of 6 from them for the second year in a row.
Remember, Sox fans suffer from the dread mental disease, Secondfiddleitis

Imagine the gnashing of teeth on the South Side when ESPN interrupted the Sox game to switch to the 9th inning of Z's game.The Astros did not have as many people hoping for a 9th inning hit in Houston as they had among the typical WhiteSox fans. Pity.

Well, I am a Sox fan who was watching the game and saw when it was interrupted for the last few Zambrano pitches - and I couldn't be happier. I'm glad ESPN did that! It was well worth it to see a rarity such as a no-hitter at the finish. It's worthy of admiration and respect, no matter what team you're a fan of. Congrats to Carlos Zambrano for a job well done :)

Allowing Houston to play the Cubs in Milwaukee as the home team was twice as bad as when New Orleans played the New York Giants IN NEW YORK as the home team. I know when hurricanes hit, it's devastating. But I didn't know it affected the brains of pro sport schedulars. Congrats to Big Z though. You pitched a gem.

Too bad most Cubs fans missed the game since it was not on WGN. Having a large number of games on CSN will eventually over the next 20-30 years decrease the national fan base because the youth of today around the country are not growing up watching the Cubs everyday like in the past. I hope to find the game on replay somewhere or a possible DVD, but wish I could have enjoyed the suspense as it happened. Great job Carlos! I wish I could have seen it!

So it comes out....Carlos wants a new ballpark.

What will Milt Pappas do now that his claim to fame isn't his anymore?

Well be prepared. New ownership may no longer wish to pay the Superstation tax and then there will be no Cub games on WGN America. What an awful station when they don't have Cubs, Sox or Bulls on the air.

What a sad person it must be to be you. Ignorant, prejudice, and Un-American. See my friend being a Real American means knowing we are all from so e where else (Unless your a native American) and accepting and knowing that is what makes us Great!

"Big Z" isn't that good. end of story
Yo George. I was at the game last night. And he was THAT good. BTW, the Astros had won 14 of their last 15 before last night.

I feel for them too having to play what was to be a home game at Wrigley North, but that's life buddy. Not everything is fair.

Since this was an unscheduled game, the TV coverage was sparse. It WAS on WGN here in Chicago, and at the start of the game both Len and Bob thanked ESPN for getting the TV crew up to Milwaukee to broadcast the game on such short notice. Sorry you missed it, but it is not the fault of WGN.

The game was shown on WGN in the Chicago area. Not sure how it could be broadcast only to certain regions. Anyway, it was very exciting to watch and although Z is not my favorite Cub, I still admire his work last night. GO CUBS!

May he stay this strong through the regular season and into (dare we say it?), October.

Go Cubs!

Great job! Chad Johnson changed his name to Ocho Cinco Johnson...but that is just his Bengles uniform number. If Carlos changes his last name, he should change it to Zambrano-no...because he earned it!

I know the Astros had won 14/15. I think MLB should have shown better judgment and postponed the series altogether. It happened in '04 when the Cubs were suppose to play the Marlins and a hurricane hit Miami. The games were postponed and played at the end of the year. With a team as hot as the Astros are,(14/16 is still considered hot) MLB should have given those guys a chance to take care of their families and homes. If a neutral site was still required, pick Atlanta, Arlington, or even St. Louis. MLB screwed up.

WGN is only slated to have 2 more games until the end of the season, that really sucks for us out of town Cub fans.

Way to go Z!
