Alfonso SorianoBy C. Trent Rosecrans

After Carlos Zambrano was ejected from Friday's game, Cubs left fielder Alfonso Soriano went into the team's clubhouse and "went off" on Zambrano, a source told CBSSports.com.

Zambrano was very quiet and didn't really say much after being ejected. Then, as soon as Soriano stopped yelling at him in Spanish, Zambrano packed his bag, took the nameplate from his locker and left, the source said.

Soriano, like Zambrano, is signed to a big-money, long-term deal by the Cubs. However, he's been criticized for not showing emotions at time, in stark contrast to Zambrano who has often let his emotions get the best of him. Soriano is known to be easy-going and generally well-liked. The fact that it was Soriano that had a problem with Zambrano showed just how fed up Zambrano's teammates are with the pitcher.

Following Friday's game, manager Mike Quade told reporters he hadn't talked to Zambrano, but didn't sound too worried about the pitcher's next step.

"I have too much respect for the rest of the guys in this room to worry," Quade said, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Aramis Ramirez told the Tribune that he'd never seen anything like what Zambrano did, while Marlon Byrd told the paper he hadn't talked to Zambrano but was planning on calling him. 

"If he doesn't show up [Saturday], we might not see him again," Byrd told the Tribune.

Players usually start showing up four hours or so before the game and the press is allowed in three-and-a-half hours before the game, so expect to hear more soon.

Good for Soriano the quiet guy in the clubhouse.  They showed Quade hiding in the corner.  With Zambrno on the loose again he has already exhausted the therapy routine so what's next?  He may be checking himself into the Betty Ford clinic alongside Lindsey Lohan.  This has turned into more of a nightmare after 11 seasons.  Time to go very seperate ways.

Since when did they let 5 year olds pitch in the Major Leagues. This guy is such a baby !! Sometimes pitchers get lit up like Chrisitmas trees...accept it !! Throw your tantrum at home.....or go drink a couple beer and cool off after the game.

Whatever other problems this man has ... the reason he was ejected from Friday's game was because he threw inside twice to a hitter. Had Zambrano wanted to bean that hitter, he could have. Beanings can be life-threatening. So it's not that he lammed out on his teammates, but he shows he is a real threat to the game's safety. A real commissioner would ban the guy.

This time the tantrum echoes "Who's your daddy?" of Pedro Martinez with the Jimmy Piersall and Albert Belle viciousness. Hey don't ever mix emotion and name calling unless you have been there. Most pitchers take their degraded talent and find an edge somehow. Zambrano took the low ignorant road of stubborn stupidity to a new level. Now when he has to pitch his lack of skill instead of raw talent just does not get it done. I guess this one just has no love for the game, but money can spoil one can it not?
