>>Cubs Place Zambrano On Disqualified List

(Atlanta, GA)  --  After walking out on his team Friday night, Carlos Zambrano was placed on the disqualified list by the Cubs.  The move means that the 30-year-old starter is not permitted to have any contact with the team and will not be paid for 30 days, a move that the players' union may reportedly appeal.  Zambrano was ejected from Friday's loss to Atlanta for throwing at Chipper Jones twice after giving up five home runs in four-and-a-third innings.  Following his ejection, the oft-fiery Venezuelan cleaned out his locker and said he was retiring.
