this game features maybe the two shortest-fused pitchers in the majors. zambrano is pitching his second start since hitting the restricted list and being sent to the bullpen; in his last appearance, he walked seven batters in five innings. carpenter last made news in a game where he was at the center of a bench-clearing brawl, and in he wasn't even pitching in that game.

bring your popcorn. wear your sunglasses. vegas is giving 5:1 odds on a zambrano-carpenter fight, and 15:1 odds on chris carpenter tearing zambrano's still-beating heart out of his chest this afternoon.
