Carlos spit out his molar on the mound after it cracked in the 5th inning yesterday.
We've all seen his jaws work furiously, smacking gum, and that's what he blamed it on.
I was at work of course, didn't see.
But after I heard, I imagined a shot like the beginning of "Blue Velvet" - the one that shows a nice neighborhood on a sunny day, but the camera moves in closer and closer until you see in the grass that... disgusting bloody ear.
Only it would be Carlos' bloody molar.
I don't know about you, but I don't really care if I was at my own hall of fame acceptance speech - if I lose a tooth I'm scramming right now.
That's why I'm the art guy, I guess.
The Cubs pull out a lucky 3-2 win over the Reds - they were out-hit 6-7.
DeRo hit a homer and the other one that went out came off of the bat of... Carlos Zambrano.
Anybody see a similarity here?
I don't know why Carlos' nickname isn't "The Zambino".
Frequent commenter Bud has the comparison Carlos/Babe stats, I just couldn't find the post with them.
(Bud, if you read this can you put those in a comment here please?)
Today it's the gotta-be-hard-to-get-up-for Washington Nationals, who have 45 wins and 83 losses.
They're 1-9 in their last 10.
Eww and Go Cubs.
ps: It's vacation time again, same Wisco lake, different cabin. I discovered last time that am radio works at night, so hopefully I can keep up that way. In any case, if I do miss a post it's because I'm probably at the taxidermy guy's place with the new record musky.
