Ozzie GuillenBy C. Trent Rosecrans

Last season after Carlos Zambrano got into a fight with teammate Derrek Lee, he went to dinner that night with White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen.

Friday, Zambrano sent Guillen texts after his latest outburst. However, Guillen said he didn't feel like dealing with anyone else's problems after the White Sox's 5-1 loss to the Royals, but his wife Ibis did replay.

Guillen, who has defended Zambrano in the past, had quite a bit to say about Zambrano, whom he calls a friend.

"Very bad and very sad situation," Guillen told reporters, including Scot Gregor of the Daily Herald.

Guillen also said he knew Zambrano was "embarrassed" by his actions.

"But it gets to the point, enough is enough," Guillen said. "What can he say? Hopefully today he feels a little bit better. He should feel embarrassed, should regret what he said or what he did. I don't think he said anything bad. There's a lot of people thinking [about] what he said. I did a lot. You know how many times I want to quit? I can't because I love this game. So does he."

Screw Zambrano! He should be kicked off the team and his contract voided. Make him get a job and struggle with $$ like most American people. Damn ball players need to realize that their lifestyle is a PRIVLEGE!!! What a jerk!

 Guillen said. "What can he say? Hopefully today he feels a little bit better. He should feel embarrassed, should regret what he said or what he did. I don't think he said anything bad. There's a lot of people thinking [about] what he said. I did a lot. You know how many times I want to quit? I can't because I love this game. So does he."
No, he doesn't. No one who respects himself and the game acts like a 3 year-old over-and-over again. He took his ball and went home. Even Soriano chewed him out (in Spanish) and he's as laid back as they get. His teammates, manager and GM are done with his petulant behavior. He's a fat, underachieving cancer. It's all about Z. He's a Z alright, a ZERO.

Hopefully, they can find a way to just dump him while giving him virtually nothing. He doesn't deserve a penny the way he acted.
He's trashed his teammates, fought with them and now walked out on them, while they were still playing. He's a disgrace to the sport and also to professional athletics. He's nothing but a self-centered punk.

If Selig had a scintilla of guts he'd suspend him for the year for his actions. Odds are he serves his 30 days and they'll probably buy him out making him a free-agent. If I were the Cubs, I'd fight it and state he left the team and was insubordinate and this is the last straw. He violated the terms of his contract. He left the team while they were playing, vacating the premises. That warrants firing anywhere in the civilized world.

I could care less about the Cubs, but this guy ticks me off. He is everything that is wrong with sports. He's self-centered, loud, never accountable and grossly overweight and overpaid. He disgraces the sport I happen to love. Personally, I hope he never throws another pitch in MLB again. That would be just.
