    If I were the Cubs GM, which we all pretend to be, i’d do it. Big Z’s antics are enough already. He’s not an Ace and, if anything, as of late, he’s a pretty good 3rd starter. Now I don’t know why the Sox would want him (or if the big boy would want to go anywhere with a DH), but if the Cubs shed his contract, that would be a wonderful thing.

    Now if only they can shed a few more awful contracts. Or maybe Hendry will take a pay cut to limit the damage he’s done. Here’s to more wishful thinking.

    If the Cubs are hell bent and determined to trade Zambrano, they need to trade him for good young talent. Someone who is almost there but not quite, and the team is getting impatient – someone like David Price (not saying the Rays would ever do this, but Price is the type of guy I mean).

    Trading bad contract for bad contract is just asking for trouble in a different form.
