    This is great news!!! I heard this as well and am ecstatic!!! I knew they'd get it done though - but I couldn't stand all the Cards fans thinking he was ending up in STL next year...
    Now lets focus on sweeping the Cards this weekend!

    No cards fans who know their stuff thought the birds would pay him zito money with the money they have tied up in carpenter and mulder.

    After his last 3 outings he probably was thinking "I'm losing leverage, better get it done."

    Good signing for the Cubs and glad to finally see a big name player back his words up by taking less money to stay with the team he wants to play for. Z could have easily got near $20 mil a year had he tested the free agent waters this winter.

    Re: Zambrano signs extension

    I'm a little surprised by this. Didn't he say early on that if they didn't get a deal done, they wouldn't start talking again until the end of the season?

    Have to wonder with contract negotiations going on, that didn't have some affect on his recent outings?

    Like I said above, hopefully this takes some pressure off him and he can get back out there relaxed and dominate.

    Perfect timing too, a little emotional boost right when the Cards come into town!

    Re: Zambrano signs extension

    We could REALLY use 3 over the Cards this weekend.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Zambrano signs extension

    How about 4?

    It's crunch time, we got two sets of 4 left with the cards, and only a two game spread. We need as many as we can get. I'd like to see us move that 2 to 6 by next Tuesday.

    Re: Zambrano signs extension

    Taking 3 would be great and they definately can't let the Cards take more than 2 which a split basically means the Cards did not gain any ground. Remaing games for Cubs. Lot of NL Central games to play...

    Cards: 8
    D'Backs: 3
    Brewers: 3
    Astros: 6
    Dodgers: 4
    Pirates: 6
    Reds: 6
    Marlins: 3
