Game 3- Brewers at Cubs- April 15, 2010- 1:20 PM

Game Stats   Season Stats  
Innings 5 Starts 3
Pitches 121        Quality Starts 1
Hits 8 Record 1-2
Walks 3 Strikeouts 17
Strikeouts 7 ERA 9.45 (- from 11.88)
Earned runs 3 WHIP 2.03(+ from 1.92)

 Welcome back to Wrigley Field, Carlos.  Stop by again when you can’t stay so long.  Today was horrible.  Though you cancelled one of the hottest lead-off hitters in the NL, that was the only bright spot (Rickie Weeks was hitting .345; you struck him out twice).  The leadoff hitters overall went 1-4 and earned a walk, which isn’t terrible, but the heart of the order went 3-7 with 2 BB, a HR, and 3 RBI.  You threw a whopping 121 pitches in just 5 innings, and that included 2 wild pitches.  You threw 110 pitches last Saturday, and I fear that at this rate, your arm is going to be dead by the middle of summer.

 It’s a shame, Z.  You were in position to help the Cubs sweep the Brewers and go above .500 for the first time this season.

 Teams have figured you out, Carlos, and it wasn’t hard to do.  They’re going to make you throw a lot of pitches, until you meltdown and let in bunches of runs.  If it feels like they’re in your head, maybe the team psychiatrist can help.  I heard the new owners brought one on board as an amenity for the club.
