Obsessive New Manager Watch: Ozzie Guillen on the List?

Brace yourself: Ozzie Guillen says he’d be interested in the Chicago Cubs’ managerial job if he leaves the White Sox. Now unbrace yourself: he’s never been mentioned as even a remote possibility from the Cubs’ perspective, and he almost certainly isn’t. Still, it’s interesting. Guillen said he might be interested if the rival Cubs approached […]

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: Ozzie Guillen Says Zambrano Has Talked to the Cubs

Despite reports every which way indicating that Carlos Zambrano has not been in contact with the Chicago Cubs, or any of his teammates, since being dismissed by the team last Friday, Ozzie Guillen – Zambrano’s dinner-mate that same Friday evening – says that Zambrano’s spoken with the Cubs and that everything is fine. He also […]

Zambranogate: Carlos Zambrano Says It was Derrek Lee’s Fault

As the World Turns… Video of Zambranogate shows the pitcher storming into the dugout after giving up four runs in the first inning on Friday, shouting – at no one in particular – and gesticulating wildly. Derrek Lee can be seen shouting “shut the f*ck up” to Zambrano, who turns, and directs his anger more […]

Wow: Carlos Zambrano Really Did Have Dinner With Ozzie Guillen Last Night

After yesterday’s Carlos Zambaster (that’s Zambrano and disaster together – I’m cool), Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen seemingly joked in the post-game press conference that he and Zambrano would be having dinner that evening, and Carlos “would have plenty of time to get a reservation.” So, yeah. He wasn’t kidding. 11:15 p.m. Having dinner […]

Carlos Zambrano Would Accept a Trade to the White Sox?

Last week, when rumors of a possible Carlos Zambrano trade bubbled over, Chicago Cubs general manager Jim Hendry came forward with his rebuttal: it wasn’t happening. No, not because the Cubs love Zambrano and would never trade him (I still can’t get over the fact that Hendry did not say this); instead, Hendry’s reason? Zambrano […]

God’s Wrathwatch: Zambrano Has Successful Rehab Start

Carlos Zambrano threw five innings last night for A ball Peoria, and things went well. Not only in result, but in how he felt. Pitching against the Clinton LumberKings, Zambrano tossed 5 uneventful innings, giving up 4 hits and no runs. He walked none, struck out five and uncorked 1 wild pitch. Zambrano threw 76 […]

Ballplayers Hate Lou Piniella, Ozzie Guillen

Apparently Lou Piniella isn’t just unpopular in Cubs fans circles these days. In a survey of 380 Major League players, 26 percent said they did not want to play for Lou Piniella and 21 percent said they did not want to play for Ozzie Guillen. The results will be published in this week’s Sports Illustrated. […]

Ozzie Guillen Hates Wrigley Field

Whatever, Ozzie. “But one thing about Wrigley Field, I puke every time I go there,” Guillen said Sunday morning. “That’s just to be honest. And if Cub fans don’t like the way I talk about Wrigley Field, it’s just Wrigley Field. I don’t say anything about the fans or anything now. But Wrigley Field, they […]
