    Certain elements of these reports are not supported by the video.

    1.) Z is passed Lee when he begins yelling and he’s clearly not yelling at anyone in particular.

    2.) After Lee turns and paces back the other direction, still yelling, Lee says something to him, reported to be “STFU.”

    3.) THEN Z directs his tirade at Lee and is cut off from Lee by Piniella, Rothschild and Soto.

    4.) Piniella and Rothschild take Z up the tunnel.

    5.) During the next inning, Z is seated on the bench once more and Lou walks to him and pats him on the leg. Things seem to have cooled down.

    6.) Later, Piniella is quoted as saying Z needs to apologize to his teammates.

    7.) Hendry suspends Z and is a font of quotes.

    I still have not read anything that confirms Z was ever sent from the ballpark by Piniella.

      Zambrano is either a 10-5 guy or close to it. So somebody help me out (Randy, if you’re reading) what is the possibility of sending Z down to the minors? I’m pretty sure he has the right to refuse. I understand that these posts might not be serious but I’m just wondering what the options really are.
