I believe Carlos Zambrano.
When he told Comcast SportsNet that only about three teammates contacted him after he was placed on the We’re Sick Of You List, I believe him.
Everything else is a crock.
No, wait, I believe Zambrano when he says he...

Some early BP before this week’s oil spill of a City Series:
