The low point of Barrett's career came not yesterday, but today, when I dumped his ass for Gerald Laird.
Not a shining moment for my fantasy team either, unfortunately, but I doubt Laird's gonna get a split lip and two black eyes from a guy on his own staff real soon either.

I had read earlier in the week that Blanco might become Zambrano's personal catcher, he went DL though...
Dunno what the Cubbies are gonna do, but I'd think somebody gets shipped out of town.

I doubt he plays.

On other boards there is speculation that Barrett sustained more than a split lip, including rumors of a broken jaw and possible head injuries. It's almost certainly internet BS, but it sounds like he took a pretty good beating in the clubhouse.

Lou also said in his post game presser that both players would be disciplined. While Barrett was not at fault, he definitely threw some punche, and as a result will likely incur some sort of suspension.

I saw the footage of MB leaving Wrigley to his car and he didn't look bad at all, though I doubt the lip-stitches reports are false. I don't believe head trauma and broken jaw. He was available to play today apparently, though not in a starting-catcher capacity. The bottom line: Barrett is not the best defensive catcher, and Zambrano not the most controlled pitcher, and neither the most emotionally-controlled individuals. Surprised it got to this level, but not surprised they have problems working together. I've got 'em both on my fantasy team and don't know what to do with either of them!
