Thomas Diamond, Not Jeff Samardzija, Will Be the New Ted Lilly

Now that Ted Lilly is off to greener pastures in Los Angeles, the Chicago Cubs will need a new starter in their rotation. The obvious long-term choice is Carlos Zambrano, but he’s neither stretched out nor pitching effectively, so, despite his protests, he’ll remain in the bullpen for at least a little while longer. In […]

God’s Wrath Watch: Carlos Silva’s Heart is Racing

Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Carlos Silva left today’s game against the Rockies after facing just four batters. It seems he was just so excited to meet new Cub Blake DeWitt that he could stop his heart from pounding. Just kidding. About the DeWitt part. Carlos Silva was pulled from Sunday’s game in the first inning […]

We Hardly Liked Ye: Cubs Release Bob Howry

Carlos Zambrano has officially come back to the Cubs, and because the team hasn’t traded Ted Lilly yet (the clock is ticking, Jim), they had to make a corresponding roster move. That move was the release of one Robert Howry. And there was much rejoicing. Howry, who turns 37 on Aug. 4, was 1-3 with […]

Lukewarm Stove: Cubs Are Ready to Move Carlos Zambrano

File this one under “Rumors That Are Obviously True, But Almost Certainly Don’t Matter.” ESPN’s Buster Olney is saying he’s heard that the Chicago Cubs are informing teams they’re ready to trade pitcher Carlos Zambrano. Which, like, duh. It’s highly, highly unlikely that Zambrano is moved during the 2010 season. Instead, the Cubs will hope he […]

Zambranogate: Carlos Breaks His Silence For Realsies

Chicago Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano has finally spoken publicly regarding Zambranogate, and while it’s good to finally hear from the horse’s mouth, his statements leave a little to be desired. “It was a moment of frustration,” Zambrano said Monday in an interview with ESPN. “I was trying to fire up the team. Lee told me […]

Zambranogate: Carlos Pitches Scoreless, but Shaky, Inning for Iowa

Carlos Zambrano is working his way back to the Chicago Cubs after a long, self-induced layoff. He threw an inning last night for AAA Iowa, and although he didn’t give up a run, the performance was altogether “meh.” Zambrano, who pitched one inning for the Mesa Rookie League team on Monday, threw 15 pitches, 10 […]

Zambranogate: Carlos Expected to Return Next Weekend

Chicago Cubs pitcher/formerly angry guy Carlos Zambrano is expected to return to the team next weekend, around July 30, when the Cubs head to Colorado to take on the Rockies. The plan for Zambrano is for him to pitch out of the bullpen for Iowa until he joins the big league team in Denver the […]

Zambranogate: Carlos Expected to Pitch for Iowa This Week

Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Carlos Zambrano, who hasn’t pitched for the Cubs since June 25 when he exploded on his teammates after an inning of terrible work. He’s been working out in Mesa, Arizona – in conjunction with his recently-completed anger management counselling – and is expected to start throwing in games this week. Cubs […]

Zambranogate: Carlos Has No More Anger, is Throwing in Arizona

Chicago Cubs pitcher/teen heart-throb Carlos Zambrano has (successfully?) completed anger management therapy. I guess he’s not angry anymore – the anger sharks are no longer swimming. Far more importantly, he’s back on the mound. He’s getting his arm back in pitching shape at the team’s spring training complex in Mesa, Arizona. Zambrano threw 25 pitches […]

Zambranogate: When Will Carlos Return?

Carlos Zambrano remains on the restricted list, suspended by the Chicago Cubs, and theoretically out until he completes anger management counseling. But when will that be? And even if he completes it very soon, how quickly can he actually come back to the team? Cubs manager Lou Piniella said Sunday that Zambrano, the temper-tangled right-hander […]

Is the Trade Market for Carlos Zambrano Going to Shape Up?

One of the many pieces the Chicago Cubs would no doubt like to move is currently-restricted pitcher Carlos Zambrano. Still away from the team while he receives anger management treatment and evaluation, Zambrano would likely welcome a trade – despite his no-trade clause – as he’s going to be stuck in the bullpen upon his […]

Zambranogate: Carlos to Start Working Out

Not the pumping-iron-with-angrily-tattooed-“love”-and-“hate”-knuckles type of working out, that is, just the throwing-the-baseball kind of working out. Though I could totally see him doing the former in an ill-lit apartment building basement. Cubs manager Lou Piniella said before Monday’s game at Chase Field that he expects pitcher Carlos Zambrano to begin working out and throwing this […]
