I’m not at all surprised that the Cubs said no, but it’s interesting to hear that there has actually been some action on Carlos Zambrano this week. Zambrano recently said he’d waive his no-trade clause if the Cubs really want to get rid of him, but obviously they aren’t desperate. Oliver Perez and Luis Castillo have each been as disappointing as Zambrano in recent months, but are owed less total money – and offer much less upside.
