View Full Version : Zambrano tossed, bumps ump

Just happened, close play at home with a wild pitch. Carlos bumps the ump, gets thrown out, throws the ball into the bleachers, throws his glove into the dugout fence, and destroys the Gatorade machine with a bat.

Hilarious.

LOL. Did anybody else just see this? He threw a wild pitch, and the Pirates runner scored and was called safe (he was safe, but barely). Zambrano goes nuts and gets in the umps face and bumps the ump with his shoulder, and he goes nuts and he gets ejected and he makes the ejection motion at the ump.

He then attempts to throw the ball into the stands, but doesn't get it there, and he throws his glove, and then the gatorade machine gets the second bashing of the week. Good times.

Indeed it was.

The call was good by the ump though. Zambrano tagged the ground in front of the runner.

Bumping an ump by itself is normally a stiff suspension. Given he's a SP, how long will they give him? He's got to lose at least a week to miss a start, but beyond that it becomes a huge issue because of lost salary (I assume pitchers get paid for every day they are not suspended even if they are only pitching 1/5 days).

Here's the thing now, looking at the replay they showed, it now looks like the ump initiated the contact by putting his shoulder into Zambrano's, and Zambrano pushed it back. Soon as Zambrano pushed back, he got tossed. Surprisingly, Lou kept his cool.

These umps are sure getting gutsy this season with player contact.

Seems like they have been doing 6 games and then the appeal drops to 5 and you still miss a start. I suppose this could be longer because of the rest of the antics.

Did that throw make it into the bleachers? I didn't see where it landed.

That was a good call by the ump, he was tagged on the chest after his hands were already on the plate.

Even if he's just pushed back a few days, that still forces the Cubs to start someone else in his place, right? Anyway, with SP, suspension length has a lot more to do with the amount of pay you're losing rather than what starts you may or may not miss.

I wouldn't mind Zambrano, but he's not having a great year. His ERA is up again, his ERA+ has fallen the last 3 years, his WHIP is up, and he's giving up a lot of flyballs (especially considering he's been a very steady groundball pitcher his whole career).

You could do worse, but you could do better.

I think the Cubs (and their fans) must lead the league in overall emotions, tantrums, etc. Ted Lilly leaves the dugout to argue with an ump on a night when he's not pitching (still remember him slamming his glove to the ground in the NLDS vs. DBacks), and now this Zambrano implosion...did the Cub fans bring out their grand tradition of throwing garbage on the field?

I love it...it's their achilles heel as a franchise/organization...losing their cool under pressure or when things don't go their way.

It's on MLB.com. I just watched it.

The Pirates runner slipped his left hand behind Zambrano's right foot and was clearly safe. Zambrano was looking at the runner's right hand and thought he tagged him before he reached the plate, but he didn't see the left hand obviously.

From what I saw it sure looked like the ump made first contact. You can blame Z for blowing up at what he thought was a wrong call, but I don't think you blame him here for bumping the ump. I'm sure the MLB will see it a different way, but that's my .02.

I just watched the video on mlb.com. Zambrano definitely took this way too far. The only reason there was contact with the umpire is because Zambrano literally jumped at Carlson while Carlson was still in his crouched position. Zambrano really needs to cool it, he is an embarrassment to the Cubs and to baseball itself. If he hits his coach with that bat, he could have caused him a serious injury. What if a piece of that machines plastic hits a teammate in the eye? He not only needs a suspension from mlb, but the Cubs should suspend him too.

If I am not mistaken if a pitcher is suspended they have to miss a start."Missing a start" would mean you didn't pitch until your turn in the rotation came around again. There's nothing to stop the team from starting him on the very first day back from the suspension. So, say you pitch on Monday, are suspended Tuesday-Saturday, you pitch again on Sunday. If you hadn't been suspended, you'd have pitched on Saturday. That's not missing a start, it's just moving your start back a day.

As you've explained, the suspensions that MLB hands out to starting pitchers are ridiculous. If you're going to suspend a MLB starting pitcher, it should be at least one week or maybe 8-9 days, beginning after his last start. That way the starter would miss at least one start.

the umpire in question is Mark Carlson from Joliet. He was a senior at Joliet West HS when I was a freshman. Nice enough guy but this isn't his first run-in with a Cubs pitcher. he tossed Kerry Wood back in 2004, IIRC, for arguing balls and strikes.

Also, Ozzie got in it with him (don't recall if he got ejected or not) at a game at Wrigley when Carlson blew a call at first base.

I recall A.J. was fined (something relatively trivial to him like $100.00) not suspended.

He was not suspended. Barrett got ten games and Anderson got five games, which both deserved it.

Z also loses 6 days of pay. That's a big amount of money... By my estimates it's over $600,000 in lost pay. You think this is a slap on the wrist, think again.

And before someone comments on how much Z makes and how he can afford it, NO ONE likes to afford $600,000 in lost money...

Agreed, it's almost a joke...600k, really, sounds like a nice scam...

Meh. 3% of his salary for going bat**** crazy. Most people should be so lucky.

Closer to 4. Would you sacrifice 4% of your yearly salary without being pissed off? That's two weeks pay in the real world.

Edit: sorry, it is closer to 3 but that's still 1.5 weeks for most people. I don't know two many people who will give up that money without being pissed.
