    Zambrano and Lilly to the Sox.

      Dumping Z’s salary and issues is fine but throwing in Lilly’s seems a bit high unless we get at least one quality prospect. Who’d you have in mind?

        I really wouldn’t care. I thin they should as much money as they can and go after Cliff Lee. He is a true ace.

          I see what you’re saying but if the choice is to throw in your best tradable player just to dump a headcase I’d rather keep Lilly and just find a way to get Zambrano committed.

            I am looking at it this way, Lilly is a FA at the end of the year, and I HOPE TO GOD the Cubs go after Lee and let Lilly go, so you might as well get ANYTHING from him. Do you think they could get something good for him?

    What could we even get out of the Sox? I doubt they are wanting to take on a bunch of salary or give us any top prospects for him. At this point is it just about getting rid of him for the Cubs?




    YOU GUYS REALLY NEED TO RETHINK your positions. 1st, we will all agree that ZAMBRANO is MLB’s biggest ALBATROSS. 2ndly, even though LILLY is still a fairly good pitcher, what value does he present to the CUBS, and especially since his contract expires after the 2010 season ??? It’s clear the CUBS don’t hit for him, which raises the demotion for him, each time he gives up a gopher ball; in other words, a lame duck; sort of. Now we will also agree that the CUBS season has been over for some time already. So in the best interest of performing a salary dump, yet getting something of value in return for the future, I would submit that the CUBS send ZAMBRANO plus LILLY to the WHITESOX, since they are on track and in line to win; in exchange for JAKE PEAVY, with the CUBS taking on his salary and the SOX becoming responsible for the salries of both ZAMBRANO and LILLY. LET’S FACE IT !!! JAKE PEAVY is the pitcher who the CUBS were supposed to acquire all along, however since we unfortunately have a BRAIN DEAD G.M. in JIM HENDRY, who will forever go down for his acquisition of MILTON BRADLEY, instead of ADAM, DUNN, we were NEVER quite able to set ourselves up for yet another run at the N.L. pennant and the elusive W.S. CHAMPION. Acquiring JAKE PEAVY now for the 2011 season will give the CUBS their #1 ACE for a few years to come. And once we rid ourselves of the DOPE IN THE DUGOUT, and the DOPE IN THE FRONT OFFICE, then we can set our sights on the INVISIBLE BLIND MOUSE of an owner that we also unfortunately have, in exchange for the guy who should have been the owner all along; MARK CUBAN !!!
