I'm seriously stunned that this made the papers. Quotes like the two below are absolutely embarrassing, particularly the first one.

Zambrano threw a bullpen session at Wrigley Field on Wednesday while the Cubs were looking stupid in a third straight one-run loss in Washington on a suicide squeeze that just pantsed everybody from the manager on down. More of that later.

This spasm of lucidity could impact the Cubs’ chances reaching first place in the Frickin' Idiot League.
