Big Z’s Big Meltdown

By bullpenbrian - May 28, 2009 - 3:15 pm 2 comments.


Let’s be honest here, Carlos Zambrano and home plate umpire Mark Carlson are both at fault.

No question Carlson walked into Z initiating contact. He clearly wanted Zambrano tossed from the game and knew a quick brush up would set the stage for an ejection.

However, Carlos’ childish fit-throwing isn’t excusable either.

I’m not a Zambrano apologist. His outbursts are ridiculous, and getting tiresome.

There’s no reason Z can’t play with emotion and act as a professional when hundreds of players around him do it daily.

It’s time for someone in the Cubs organization to grab Zambrano around the collar to get the message across–GROW UP!
