Wow. This news is fantastic! Best thing to come out of Cubs camp is that Carlos has decided that the closer battle in camp with Kevin Gregg is more important. Found it at the bottom of this piece in the Trib, about Z acting like a spoiled child.
I can only imagine the thrill it would be to represent ones country internationally, but more and more players are, and I think for good reason, bowing out of this exhibition tournament.
Carlos himself said "It's hard to say no to your country". Well, with the way he was borderline abused by Lou last year, and the important role he has in this team's success, I'm really glad he did.
Side note: This Zambrano behavior is really getting tired. I get that having the media around all the time would be annoying to say the least, but to me it's part of a players job to answer questions. Anyway, I digress...
