Zambranogate: Carlos to Start Working Out

Not the pumping-iron-with-angrily-tattooed-“love”-and-“hate”-knuckles type of working out, that is, just the throwing-the-baseball kind of working out. Though I could totally see him doing the former in an ill-lit apartment building basement. Cubs manager Lou Piniella said before Monday’s game at Chase Field that he expects pitcher Carlos Zambrano to begin working out and throwing this […]

Wow: Carlos Zambrano Really Did Have Dinner With Ozzie Guillen Last Night

After yesterday’s Carlos Zambaster (that’s Zambrano and disaster together – I’m cool), Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen seemingly joked in the post-game press conference that he and Zambrano would be having dinner that evening, and Carlos “would have plenty of time to get a reservation.” So, yeah. He wasn’t kidding. 11:15 p.m. Having dinner […]
