Carlos Zambrano isn't coming back anytime soon

Jul 12, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

Dollars to donuts that he’s killed three anger management counselors in a blind rage. Paul Sullivan:

Carlos Zambrano won’t return to the Cubs in the Phillies series
that begins the second half of the season Thursday. The Cubs insist they
don’t know when Zambrano, who’s on the restricted list, will be back,
or when he can begin his rehab, or even if he’s done with his anger
management therapy. “We’re still in limbo,” Piniella said.

I’m sure the Cubs don’t mind. Given how he pitched before his blowup he’s worth more to the Cubs as a roster-space-freeing body on the restricted list than he is as a pitcher.  I mean, sure, I suppose they’d like him to not be crazy and stuff anymore, but people are better served by not allowing themselves to disappear into fantasy land.
