Hendry and Quade weren't the only fed-up Cubs. Several players, including Alfonso Soriano, made it clear they were, too.
Zambrano said he has heard from Soriano, Marlon Byrd and Carlos Pena since the incident and that he understood their frustration with him. He also insisted he wasn't trying to hit Jones.
"I have to pitch inside, and the pitch was a cutter," he said. "If I want to hit someone, I hit him. I think I have good target when I want to hit someone."
As for his future, Zambrano isn't sure what will happen. He did make it clear he hopes to stay put, though.
"If the Cubs welcome me, I'll be with the team again," he said. "If they decide to do something else, I'll have to play for somebody else. In the bottom of my heart, I will be a Cubbie forever
