7:11pm: Carlos Zambrano was rushed to a local Chicago hospital on Thursday afternoon after complaining of pain in his side, according to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times. He may be dealing with a case of appendicitis, and could undergo an emergency appendectomy.

The Cubs haven’t revealed too much information, but appendectomies often sideline athletes for at least four weeks.  Big Z was supposed to return to the Cubs’ rotation next week against the Pirates.

It’s not known if Zambrano will be available in relief for this weekend’s series against the Cardinals.

    You guys, all you care about is baseball. What we all really want to know is “DID THE FETUS SURVIVE?”

    I hear he was just misunderstood. What he said was “I have a bad pain in my backside” refering to “Sweet Lou” of course.
