6/6 Agree, disagree with Big Z?
It was tough to watch Albert Pujols hit a game-winning homer for the second straight day and lead the Cardinals to a win over the Cubs on Sunday. Carlos Zambrano then added to the bad mood with his post-game comments. Zambrano clearly wanted his opinion to be heard. He was in line for the win if Carlos Marmol doesn’t give up the RBI double in the ninth to Ryan Theriot. Zambrano spoke loudly and clearly during his post-game rant. This wasn’t like the dugout tirade last June at U.S. Cellular Field when he yelled at teammates, prompting a three-game suspension and anger management therapy.
On Sunday, Zambrano said the Cub were “embarrassing,” that they were playing like a Triple-A team. “We stink,” he said. You may agree with Zambrano’s assessment of the team.
What’s troublesome is calling out his teammates in the clubhouse. That’s usually something done behind closed doors, not in front of the media.
Do you agree with what Zambrano did?
