Carlos Zambrano returned to Wrigley Field, but he won’t be pitching.
Sort of like the way he left.
Zambrano, you’ll recall, quit on the Cubs last season. He walked out on the team, acting like a baby after a pitching like a jerk against Atlanta. It was so obvious whose fault it was that even the idiot in the middle of yet another moronic episode figured it out.
And so, Zambrano took the blame and apologized. Again.
Some people think this is a new Zambrano. Please, people, stop sounding like you were first in line for “Lobotomy Night’’ at Wrigley.
Zambrano always says it’s his fault because it always is his fault. Everytime Zambrano has acted like an idiot, he eventually has explained to Cub Nation that he was a bad boy and would learn from it.
And then he wouldn’t.
Pick an embarrassment: fighting with a teammate, screaming at his team in the dugout, assaulting a drink machine, ripping a teammate publicly -- always his fault and he always says so, and then he does something again, such as quitting on his team.
He might be behaving like an adult in Miami so far, but you watch, that’ll change. He’ll do something stupid. Then he’ll take the blame.
You know what? The guy ought to just get it over with and change his name to Carlos Mea Culpa.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
