Edgar Tovar?

  • Interesting article on Cubs.com Sunday about Cubs bullpen catcher Edgar Tovar and Carlos Zambrano. I hadn't heard this anywhere before. Turns out that the Cubs sent a babysitter to Venezuela with Big Z over the winter to make sure he stayed on his team designed fitness regime. Tovar is also Venezuelan and used to play ball with one of Z's brothers. Tovar met Zambrano when Z was a "skinny teen." I'm not sure if this has any significance or not, but Zambrano is off to his best start ever. No word on whether Red Bull and coffee was part of Tovar's workout plan for the Baby Bull.

PORQUE UNA PERSONA TAN CONOCIDA Y CON TAN BUENA FORMACION Y CRIANZA. ABANDONA A SUS HIJOS POR NADA. QUE ESPERA EL QUE DEPONGA EL FUTURO. SI NO LOS PUEDE TENER CON ÈL ALMENOS QUE SE COMUNIQUE CON ELLOS. PARA QUE SIENTAN CALOR DE PADRE.
