(Chicago, IL) – In just three days, the Chicago Cubs dugout has seen its share of tantrums. On Monday, it was starting pitcher Ryan Dempster who blew up after a poor performance and took it out on various dugout equipment, including the team’s Gatorade machine.
It seemed an isolated, and random attack until earlier today, when pitcher Carlos Zambrano, angry at a blown call and subsequent ejection, took out his anger on the very same Gatorade machine.
Clearly, something larger was at play.

He absolutely had to see the critically-panned flick ‘Powder Blue.’

No community is insulated completely from the threat and the associated fear – including the Chicago Cubs community. And it’s hit some folks harder than others.
