It appears that after a rough outing against the Braves, Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano has cleared out his locker and told locker room personnel that he is retiring. In the 5th inning of the game, Zambrano had just given up back-to-back HRs, which totalled 5 HRs allowed for the night and was ejected after two close inside pitches to Chipper Jones, the 2nd barely missing him. Personally I hope he retires and we never have to hear any more about him.
Quade was perplexed by the chain of events that occurred.
"I came in, saw there was an empty locker," Quade said. "Then I heard that he was retiring, that he had left."
According to clubhouse personnel, Zambrano said he had enough and left Turner Field before the game ended.
