Chicago Cubs Opener Leaves Nothing but Questions

April 6, 2010 by  

Too bad there's no such thing as mulligans in baseball. Carlos Zambrano's first two innings were just about as bad as they come, as the Atlanta Braves pounded on the Cubs in the season opener.

You really have to squint to see anything good in this one, but there are some promising remarks to be made.

First, the bad.

Zambrano (0-1) left the game after 1.1 innings pitched, in which he pitched a monstrous 49 pitches, only 28 being strikes. Along with his eight earned runs, two walks, two home runs, and 6.00 WHIP, he managed to squeeze in a signature hit batsman.
