Zambrano . . . sits for 6 games . . . and in my best Henry Clay imitation "SUCK ON IT FAT BOY!"

From what Yahoo said, his suspension starts today and barring any rainouts, he'll pitch next Thursday...

There went Lou's top PH'er for the next week...

he is a starter, for that act of foolishness, let alone almost seriously hurting someone with those flying drink dispenser pieces, he should be out for 15 days.

If he just argued, that's one thing, he fired a ball which could have hit someone in the crowd, that's another.

So he misses 1 start, hangs out and eats pizza all week till next thursday, big deal.

Can't stand that guy, especially pointing his finger into his catcher's head, that is so bush.

2 weeks minimum, but of course he is not even appealing this because his agent knows he caught a break.

I am sure the Cub's will probably even pay the fine, he probably has a clause in his contract forcing them to.

Who are you, his agent? We're allowed to poke fun at Zambrano's weight. It's certainly doing him no favors.

So what? No one is calling him bad. We're just calling him fat, which he is. He also has a hot temper that gets him in trouble. He also plays for the other team. Why should we suddenly be nice to him?

When I posed this question to Capps and Zambrano here was their response...
