One way or another, Carlos Zambrano has thrown his final pitch as a Chicago Cub. After giving up eight runs on five homers in four innings and change, he threw at Chipper Jones and was ejected. The Braves got pissed and came out of the dugout, but Z was already off the field. After the game, he cleaned out his locker and told various people that he is considering retirement. As of now, no one knows his whereabouts.
Even if Z changes his mind the Cubs could probably suspend him indefinitely. He might just retire, but he has $18+ million reasons not to. I’m guessing he and his agent work out some sort of settlement.
Honestly, I don’t even know what to say. Z is still my favorite Cub after Sosa and both of them are going out on a brown note.
