Carlos Zambrano says he could retire
You gotta take the things players say in the final week of disappointing seasons with a grain of salt, but what Carlos Zambrano is saying is interesting:
“It’s been a disappointing season. People say, ‘Why can’t you pitch like that all the time?’ It’s not all the time I feel like that. Look, this is the only season I haven’t won 16 or 18 or 14 games. If it happens again next season, two seasons in a row, I’ll quit. Believe me, I’ll quit. I just have to put this behind me.”
Either way, I hope he doesn’t retire any time soon. Crazy or not, ineffective in 2009 or not, he’s one of my favorite pitchers for some reason.
