Given The Choice, I’d Take Zambrano’s No-No

Sunday, September 14th, 2008

For the first time ever I had a legitimate chance at winning the fantasy baseball league I’ve been in for 6 years.  After leading the whole season, I went into the playoffs feeling pretty good about my chances. 

Unfortunately, my team — loaded with Cubs — ran into Hurricane Ike this week.  All three of the Cubs-Astros games were postponed.

The Cubs and Astros were scheduled to make-up one of those games tonight in Milwaukee — the final night of the fantasy semi-finals.  I was pinning my hopes on Kerry Wood coming in and getting a save, which would propel me to the final round.

But Kerry Wood didn’t get the save.  Instead, Carlos Zambrano went ahead and pitched himself a no-hitter — the first Cub to do so since 1972.  I ended up losing the fantasy season 300.00 to 302.33.
