This just in: the Cubs are not better than the Yankees.
One source says the Yankees are heavily scouting Zambrano for a trade. Another says “it’s all b.s.” The truth usually lies somewhere in the middle.
Ken Rosenthal gets quotes from Carlos Zambrano during yesterday’s game, Mike Quade doesn’t like ties, and Carlos Pena is a freight train.
The Cubs will never win three in a row again for the rest of time.
The Yankees new pitching coach sounds like he would mind working with Z again. Doug Davis’ start, Wrigley’s noise, Cubs/Sox popularity, and premium seats also feature today.
Carlos Zambrano says he will not use his no-trade rights to block a trade if the Cubs decide to move him.
Dare I be a total homer and simply say, “go, Cubs, go”?
The Yankees’ pitching staff has fallen on hard times, and it looks like they’re considering making a move for Carlos Zambrano.
Fay Vincent hates Mark Cuban, Mike Quade loves Tom Ricketts, Mark Riggins doesn’t mind criticism, Joe Girardi loves Chicago, and you may love the ‘Moneyball’ trailer.
The deadline is 1:20 CST today, when the Cubs game starts. Free, one-day fantasy game with the chance to win cash, and, no matter how you do, you’re supporting BN. Why are you not clicking on this right now?
Wow, a four-game series win? Against the first place Brewers?
Chicago Cubs owner Tom Ricketts has “100 percent confidence” in Jim Hendry. But what exactly does that mean?
More of Tom Ricketts on organizational spend, the Cubs’ financial burdens, Crane Kenney’s job security, and funding Wrigley Field’s revamp, as well as a bit on Starlin Castro and Darwin Barney.
Cubs come out with a thud after the last two exciting wins. I blame the rain.
The owner spoke about Jim Hendry’s job, Mike Quade’s job, the state of the team’s finances, Wrigley Field, Carlos Zambrano, and the structure of the front office.
Jim Hendry says it’s not that bad, Rick Morrissey says it’s been bad for a long time, and Steve Rosenbloom says it’s only bad when the Cubs are bad.
Don’t miss your chance to win cash by playing one day of free fantasy baseball – also, it helps keep the lights on here at BN. So do it.
New strategy: funny shirts before every game. Prince Fielder’s free agency, the Cubs’ money to spend, the Tom Ricketts era, and Marlon Byrd’s rehab also feature today.
God’s Wrath Watch: Darwin Barney Probably Going to the Disabled List (Updated: Yup, and Soriano Back)
Sprained PCL in his right knee. Happened when he scored the winning run on Monday. How’s that for wrath?
Big comeback against the hottest team in the league? Walk-off win? These things do anything for you?
Johnson didn’t have a concussion, and Colvin will get regular at bats in Iowa.
After flying up the Cubs’ prospect chart last Fall, Carpenter has fallen off the map this year. Until today.
Here’s your chance to (1) win money playing free fantasy baseball, and (2) support Bleacher Nation.
And he’s about to blow out. So many Jim Hendry bullets today, as well as the Cubs’ crappy offense, Alfonso Soriano’s All Star push (huh?), and Wrigleyville’s hatred of the Cubs.
“He’s certainly doing a fine job here.”
GM Jim Hendry says he and Tom Ricketts have never discussed not going after free agents for 2012 and beyond.
