(the unsympathetic Lady CSTB says there’s no excuse for Nomar pulling the cum face in public)

I don’t know if Carlos Zambrano is still giving the press the Steve Carlton treatment, but an Albert Puljos solo shot aside, he was flawless against the Cardinals last night. The bigger concern for the Cubs this morning is the fate of SS Nomar Garciaparra, who was carried off the field in the throes of groin-tastic pain. Given that the former Red Sox superstar is toiling with a one-year deal, his rejection of a 4 year, $60 million extension from Boston prior to the 2004 season might rank amongst the bigger blunders in recent memory.
