This is the sound of one man digging his way out of a hole.

I love it.

Big Angry Z is taking the Shaggy approach to addressing his comments about Miller Park South:

"I didn't say that," Zambrano said Sunday, according to the Chicago Tribune. "I said anybody wants to have a new ballpark," the Cubs' ace said, according to the newspaper. "As a player, you feel like you're trying to be more comfortable. As a player, you want to have the greatest ballpark in the National League, or the big leagues. As a fan, we should stay there."

Then this:

"They don't have to be mad," he said. "I didn't say they have to build a new stadium. If the Cubs do it, we will be much better and more comfortable, as a player. I think it's my opinion. And sometimes when fans say something about a player, you have to respect it. But I didn't say we should move. I love Wrigley Field," he added, according to the Tribune. "Don't get me wrong. It's a nice ballpark, but if the Cubs think some time, some period, 10 or 20 years from now, if they think about [building] a new ballpark, it should be good."

How did he think that was going to play out?

It sounds to me like once they do decide to build a new park, he's earned a spot on the planning committee. With great ideas like "it should be good" and "much better and more comfortable" he's a shoe-in.

8 hours bro, get pumped.

Maybe they'll add a "Zambrano's Hole" feature, similar to Tal's Hill, that totally screws the pitcher. It can be a 6" gopher hole right in front of the mound that ensures a pitcher charging for a bunt will step in and get a High Ankle Sprain.

Totally beside myself...
