The Cubs place Zambrano on the restricted list for "treatment"

5 Comments

The designation is not as surprising as the way in which it is being reported. Here’s MLB.com’s Carrie Muskat:

Cubs announce Carlos Zambrano on ML restricted list
starting Tues and will start treatment Wed.

Electroshock treatment? Insanity aversion therapy? Hosing him down like the resident of a Victorian-era lunatic asylum? A lobotomy?

For the second time today I will plead to the lack of a medical degree, but my view of things is that Zambrano guy is just an antisocial hothead which, last time I checked, was a disposition, not an illness that required treatment.  But hey, if the Cubs need the roster space, let them have the roster space.
