Hatred of Carlos Zambrano spreads to Chicago

The Chicago Sun-Times' Carol Slezak is sick of Big Angry Z's antics. A nugget:

When Zambrano's head is into a game, he can be dominant. The good has outweighed the bad.

As if to underscore that fact, Zambrano threw a no-hitter upon returning from an 11-day layoff caused by a mysterious shoulder problem last September. Never mind that he shut down an exhausted Houston Astros team that was escaping Hurricane Ike and playing a supposed home game in Cubs-friendly Miller Park. The message, repeated time and again: Zambrano is worth the trouble.

Not anymore.
