Those are two beautiful words. I cannot stand Carlos Zambrano. He’s obnoxious, and this season he has not been worth the trouble.
Yesterday after giving up four runs in the bottom of the first inning against the Stinking White Sox Big Z went all batshit crazy (sorry mom) and got all in Derrick Lee’s business. Why? Who knows. Does Z have to have a reason to go batshit crazy? Not really.
Here is the incident in question.
Lou Pinella sent Zambrano to the locker room, and General Manager Jim Hendry suspended him indefinitely. I love this. I have no idea how long the suspension will go in reality, but every day he isn’t in the dugout is a good day as far as I’m concerned.
I wish we could get rid of him, but we are paying him a ton of money. Therefore he is too expensive to trade, especially since his record this year is less than stellar. Here are his stats:
Games started: 9
ERA: A whopping 5.66
He also has a handful of relief appearances, but he wasn’t terribly impressive out of the bullpen either, as you can tell by his ERA.
I hope he stays suspended for a loooong time.
