Players association to file grievance on Zambrano

ZambranoOn Monday morning, the players association will file a grievance on behalf of Carlos Zambrano against the Cubs for placing the mercurial right-hander on the disqualified list, the Arlington Daily Herald reports.

Zambrano blew up in Friday's game, getting ejected in the fifth inning after allowing eight runs. Zambrano threatened that he was retiring after the game, clearing out his locker and taking his nameplate. That spurred the Cubs, sick of his antics, to call him on it and placed him on the disqualified list.

The player's union will argue that the punishment does not fit the crime, as being placed on the list would cause Zambrano to go unpaid for 30 days and cannot be with the team. Of course, if Big Z was to retire, he'd be forfeiting his entire salary, including $18 million next season.

Zambrano has not been back to the park since clearing out his locker, but did tell an associate to return his belongings, which happened around 11:15-11:30 p.m. Friday night. Casey Coleman is expected to be called up to assume Zambrano's spot in the rotation.

Hey Cubs, put his belongings in a plastic  bag and Fed Ex them to Carlos.  What a low life having a associate bring his belongings back to the clubhouse Friday night!  "Oh, I didn't really leave, see, my things are still in my locker. Now about my pay check..."

Zambrano is an emotionally challenged spoiled BRAT! If the Cubs are tired of his antics, and the DQ list is still viable, then tough you-know-what to Zambrano and the union.

I cant stand this- the guy is a freakin millionaire dozens of times over- its not like he's working at McDonalds for minimum wage! Like he "needs" the unions protection or the money for 30 days.

I know unions can serve purposes on some occasions, but this is just nuts.

If you find yourself sticking up for Zambrano it could mean only 1 of 2 things. 1) You are in a union. 2) You are too dopey to understand the fact that if you did this in your job, you would be fired immediately with no chance of getting your job or any pay back. Wake up guys---stop sticking up for these MILLIONAIRES!!! This guy had so many chances and squandered them all. I say, good riddance and have fun trudging through the minors or trying to sell your autograph for $2.50 at card shows.

Grievance

Z may get the union to sue if the cubs don't pay back all that salary they took from him.
