Carlos “Big Z” Zambrano put the ‘Z’ in Crazy with a classic meltdown during the Cubs 5-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday. It was a Pinella-esque tirade complete with an ump bump, thrown balls and gloves and another assault on the new dugout Gatorade dispenser. Here’s another clip of the Big Z meltdown including a few shots taken by the Gatorade machine.
My favorite part – when Z takes a whack at the dispenser and seems to head down the tunnel, only to come back for another shot before Sweet Lou ushered him out of the dugout.
Check out the postgame comments from Big Z and his meltdown mentor, manager Lou Pinella.
