    Carlos Zambrano is a White Sox Fan

    ''Well, if I do,'' Zambrano added in a hushed voice, ''I want it to be in a White Sox uniform.''

    What?

    This isn't the kind of thing that will go over well with Cubs fans.

    ''I grew up as a White Sox fan. That was my favorite team,'' Zambrano said. ''I apologize to the Cubs fans for saying this, but you don't have control when you are 6, 7 years old of your feelings. Your feelings are with the team you see as a child. For me, it was the White Sox.''
    Zambrano loves the Cubs, but he's also a Sox fan :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Chris De Luca

    There's a lot more interesting stuff in the article, including the relationship between Zambrano and Ozzie. Big Z and I now have one thing in common.

    You like to fight with Michael Barrett?

    You get "wrist cramps" when you "e-mail your brother" too much?

    So what? Jim Thome is a Cubs fan. Not every player gets to play for the team they grew up rooting for. This is a non issue.

    His family stays with him in Chicago during the season, so it's easy to see why he would want to play for the White Sox if he ever has to make that decision.

    I will disagree will this, JT does all his off season training in Darien, IL. My wife works for the company he trains at and I've meet him a number of times. He has been a Sox fan his whole life!

    Isn't that the running joke on AM 1000 in Chicago with Carmen and Silvi, that Ozzie Guillen is on the computer talking to his brother in Venezuala as a euphemism? I assume that's what you're referring to.

    A few years ago, Zambrano ended up on the DL for wrist/forearm problems, and he attributed it to spending too much time on the internet "e-mailing his brother."

    Being a Cubs fan is awesome!
    If there's a twist that a Cyclone season hasn't come up with, the Cubbies fill in the blanks for me.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Carlos is shunned. No longer allowed to ride in my carriage or to build barns or break bread with me. Go to hell with the other Anglish.

    Cybookie....give us an over/under on when Pinella gets axed. Love the guy, but the cubbies are just Cyclones with pinstripes.
