Game Thread #55: Zambrano-less

Given the Brewers recent past, maybe it isn't my place to talk.  But when it comes to sucking, the Cubs just do it better than anybody else.  And of late, they manage to do it for more money than anybody else, too.  The WSB has a good wrapup (with video!) of a complete implosion from Carlos Zambrano.

It is utterly ridiculous that the Brewers are 6.5 games up on the division right now; there's nothing I would like more than to win about seven in a row while the Cubs completely self-destruct.  Let's face it: they're handing us the division right now, we just need to grab it.

The matchup tonight is Jeff Suppan and Scott Olson.  I predict that Fielder will be the first player to 20 home runs, hitting his bomb in the 6th inning, and that Jose Capellan will appear in the game.  I'm not going to venture a guess as to whether I'll be happy about that.

Go Brewers!
