Zambrano Signs With The Phillies, Reports Nobody Who Speaks English
Posted by at 8:10 pm ET 1 Comment

I don’t run a rumor site but this is strange and worth talking about. Several news sites in Venezuela, Carlos Zambrano’s native country, are reporting that El Toro has signed a Major League contract with our Philadelphia Phillies. The same keyword search in English returns no hits earlier than 4 days ago regarding rumors of any kind about the volatile pitcher (I don’t count forum postings – they aren’t any better than the reporting you get here). The last confirmed fact I’ve heard about Zambrano is his signing with the Long Island Ducks of the independent Atlantic League. It seems to me that if this was true, it wouldn’t float around the internet for 24 hours before people began speculating on English-speaking new outlets, given his reputation as being one of the larger-than-life characters in professional baseball.
