Carlos Zambrano's Internet Addiction


It's a shame the Chicago Sun-Times had to go and ruin all our fun; they've refuted the story that Carlos Zambrano's recent injury woes were due to too much time on the computer. The Cubs say that Zambrano's injury is not carpal tunnel syndrome, though they admit they did ask him to spend less time online. Zambrano reportedly spends his computer time talking to his brother, or, as we called it in junior high, "talking to his brother." According to reports, Zambrano spends four or five hours a day typing on the computer, which, um, is, totally bad, right?

Somehow you get a feeling that the nerds at Baseball Prospectus will find some sort of anti-computer conspiracy in this.
