Per Gordon Wittenmyer on twitter Z walked out of the clubhouse after getting ejected and told a team trainer that he was retiring.
So much for Changed-Z...
Possible that even if Z is serious about retirement the MLBPA could pressure Z to not retire and force the Cubs to pay him his salary next year. I think Z would simply raise a middle finger to the MLBPA.
Supposedly Q is upset, but either way I dont see how Z will be on the team come Opening Day, regardless of what else happens in the next few days.

Uh-Oh - Paul Sullivan is:
Searching downtown ATL for Big Z to talk some sense into him. Wish me luck.
