Carlos Zambrano Loses It Yet Again

Carlos Zambrano Still Unable To Control Temper

Marlins_Carlos_Zambrano_2Carlos Zambrano was not on the mound during Game Three of the Venezuelan winter league finals but soon found himself in the middle of a brawl swinging hay-makers at anything he could.

The 32-year old Zambrano hasn’t pitched in the major leagues since going 7-10 with a 4.49 ERA with the Miami Marlins in 2012.

His exit from baseball has little to do with his ability on the mound and a lot to do with his temper on the field.

It is important to note, there is no crime in exiting the dugout in a basebrawl….but the best course of action when not directly involved in the action is to grab an opposing player and dance until the dust settles.

Unfortunately, Zambrano didn’t assume that role, instead he chose to charge out of the dugout and begin swinging at the opposing pitcher and others. Not exactly the way to show the scouts in attendance that you’ve reached a more mature stage in your life.

Last season he signed a minor league deal with the Philadelphia Phillies and appeared in 7 games including four starts at the Triple-A level before being straining his lat muscle and subsequently being released.  His actions during the Venezuelan League Finals may be the straw that broke the camels back for Zambrano in the major leagues.

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
