Under The Bleachers

We met up with Chicago Cubs ace Carlos Zambrano today after we read and re-read this heart-warming interview with ESPN.

Zambrano and Michael Barrett 'shared tears' the day after their dugout slugout.Sooze: "Carlos. May I call you Carlos?"

Zambrano: "Call me Big Z, baby."

Sooze: "Alright Big Z. First thing's first. What the hell is with all this crying nonsense?"

Lizzy: "Yeah. There's no crying in baseball."

Zambrano: "Well, Barrett came to me the next day [after I kicked his ass], and he apologized and I apologized to him... and we cried."

Sooze: "Umm. I'm sorry, are you crying right now?"

Zambrano: "I still love him."

awkward silence

Zambrano: "Can I get a tissue?"

Sooze: "Would you like a tampon?"

Know how I know you're gay?Lizzy: "Oh, God. What is this - an episode of Grey's Anatomy? I can't take it any more."

Zambrano: "I told you I didn't want to talk about that."

Sooze: "I dont know about you Lizzy, but I like my hurlers tough-as-nails. There's no crying after a beatdown. It's simply unacceptable."

Lizzy: "Yeah, I think we're probably done here. Thanks for the memories, Big Z."
