Cubs place Zambrano on disqualified list

Carlos ZambranoBy C. Trent Rosecrans

The Cubs have placed Carlos Zambrano on the disqualified list, meaning he will have 30 days without pay and cannot be with the team, the team announced.

Cubs general manager Jim Hendry told the Chicago Tribune that he found Zambrano's actions "intolerable." Although Hendry said he hasn't talked to Zambrano, he did talk to his agent who told him Zambrano was "not in the retirement mode."

During the 30 days, the team and the Players' Association will discuss Zambrano's situation. 

That means he would rather not give up the more than $20 million owed to him by the club. Zambrano had reportedly told people he was going to retire after he was ejected from Friday's game for throwing at Chipper Jones and then packing his bags and leaving before the end of the game.

Hendry said he apologized to Braves general manager Frank Wren for spoiling the night dedicated to honoring former Braves manager Bobby Cox.

The team could call up Triple-A starter Casey Coleman to take Zambrano's place in the rotation.

Hendry needs to go with him and never be given another job like this in baseball. Why the bleeping bleep they let Hendry stick around past the trading deadline, then keep stiffs like ramirez, Zambrano, and Marmol (who will NEVER be there the next time the Cubs play a game that matters) was un acceptable. Every night you'll have less and less of those Wrigleyville fans to sing that moronic when you win and are still 20 games out and the rest of us real baseball fans will just tune you out. I already have.
