    Zambrano makes a few guarantees.

    Says that he will win the NL Cy Young, and the Cubs are going to win the Series. That seems like a lot of pressure to put on yourself and team before the opening pitch...

    Pretty cocky thing to say when mediocraty would be an improvement on that side of the windy city.

    Doesn't every Cubs fan guarantee a championship before the season starts every year????

    Cub fan = hawk fan. Their foolishness knows no bounds.

    I'm gonna have to disagree. Cubs' fans are hopefull each spring, but they do not possess the arrogance that is the defining quality of many Hawkeye fans.

    I definitely disagree. Sure there are idiots that are fans of both teams, but I wouldn't go as far as to say they are the same. For instance, you will never see Lou Pinella lobbying for a playoff spot. That being said, Zambrano definitely made a bold and silly statement in guaranteeing that. But this year is the year! ...another reason why we aren't the same, we acknowledge that we've had some poopy years, while Hawkeye fans live in a state of denial that they are the best team in the country and God's chosen team for every sport. Go Cubs!

    Mediocrity would be an improvement, but not acceptable given the amount of money spent. Let me start by saying I have always been a HUGE Cubs fan. Being compared to a Hawk fan really hurts, but I can see a little similarity.

    The Cubs have a legitimate shot at winning the NL Central, but that is a long way from the World Series. There are still some question marks in the pitching/bullpen area. Offensively we should be golden and I think that Lou will use that lineup to efficiently manufacture runs rather than trying to rely on the long ball (although there should be a few of those this year).

    Agreed...Cubs fans know when they are bad. Iowa fans think they are always good (see the posts on Hawkeyenation STILL talking that they could still be on the bubble). Plus, I don't think Iowa has lost a football or basketball game since the 1990s...they always have an excuse for losing.

    Now don't be that mean, I think Cub fan is just dellusional from all the years of not making it. Cub fan is that guy in the straight-jacket in the padded room of the asylem repeating to himself:

    "Cubs will win the World Series,Cubs will win the World Series,Cubs will win the World Series,Cubs will win the World Series,Cubs will win the World Series,Cubs will win the World Series,Cubs will win the World Series,Cubs will win the World Series,Cubs will win the World Series,Cubs will win the World Series,Cubs will win the World Series,Cubs will win the World Series,Cubs will win the World Series,Cubs will win the World Series,Cubs will win the World Series,Cubs will win the World Series"

    Don't hate on 'em, they're harmless.

    Re: Zambrano makes a few guarantees.

    Honestly what does it matter that he made the statement?? They are words and the last time I checked words didn't win you anything. This is being made into way too big of a deal.

    Re: Zambrano makes a few guarantees.

    I hate Cardinals fans nearly as much as I hate Hawk fans, for the SAME REASONS. OK well one of my best friends is a Cards fan, but he doesn't talk any smack.

    Agreed...I have a friend who is a Cards fan and he mailed in the season about 2/3 of the way through when they started to tank. He didn't watch or even keep up with them until the playoffs and even then he didn't really care because he said he "knew they would lose in the first round". Now that they have won the World Series...he the biggest cards fan around and isn't scared to rub it in.
