Congrats to a guy from my hometown. Carlos Zambrano, "The Big Z", of the Chicago Cubs, pulled his hamstring running out a bunt. He is supposed to be on the disabled list for three weeks. And that means Randy Wells got the call up from the Iowa Cubs Triple "A" baseball team in Des Moines. Wells grew up in Belleville, Illinois. He actually got drafted as a catcher, but later switched to pitcher in the minor leagues. Good luck, Randy! Just don't do too well to hurt my Cardinals.
Speaking of my Cards, their center fielder, Rick Ankiel, had an ugly, face-first crash into the wall as he made an amazing catch. Here's the first video I can find of it. You'll have to ignore the guy doing the highlights, who shows absolutely no empathy in his fake-voiced play-by-play.
