What's the Matter with Carlos Zambrano?

Postby RedSoxdominate » Sun Apr 30, 2006 7:08 pm

He's got the talent to be one of the top five pitchers in the NL, yet he's started off really slow. I'm getting agitated. Is there a legitamate concern here?

Who knows. I saw the blowup today. Man needs to learn some self control and challenge people. He is walking way too many people.

Zambrano looks like a tool out there, once he got behind he appeared to not care. Ramirez is also killing the small bears. :-P

What's wrong with him?

He has the temperament of a 4 year old and plays on a team where the guys who should be helping to take the pressure off his 4 year old mind are constantly on and off the DL.

Zambrano will be fine. He started last year pretty weak too. Not this weak, but weak.

The fact that he looks great until giving up a few bad at bats (and basically falling apart) is a good sign. At least he's not injured or suddenly forgot how to pitch. He'll get in the groove soon enough.

Yeah well as he was melting down today he got so frustrated on the mound he threw one behind the back of Carlos Lee (who has always killed Zambrano and hit a homer off him today). Not the thing to do when you are having problems. He got warned and never did get an out in the 5th.

He left with the bases juiced after giving up 6 and the Cubs pen remarkably only let one more score. It could easily have been 9 and not 7 earned runs. You have to wonder about a guy that breaks a bat over his leg in one start and then starts to throw at people in another. Hey Carlos, how about you throw strikes and get people out. It is not like you don't have the ability to do so.

I believe there was a very strong wind blowing to left center.

as long as he doesn't pull a milton bradley, jose guillen, frank francisco, or (god forbit) ron artest, i'm just fine with his temperament, as long as he continues his production of the last couple of years (which i think he will, don't worry).
