    Trading Zambrano: This Tribune writer suggests it......

    Perfect time for Cubs to waive bye-bye to Carlos Zambrano -- chicagotribune.com



    Interesting. I was surprised to see somebody putting that in print.

    I'm surprised that someone that foolish can have a job as a professional writer. Zambrano is probably never going to be an ace pitcher, but I'll bet at least a half-dozen teams would take on his contract if the Cubs waived him. Dumb dumb dumb.

    Phil Rogers is seriously the dumbest baseball writer I ever read. I can't stand him.

    Re: Trading Zambrano: This Tribune writer suggests it......

    That writer is insane. The Cubs have had the best starting pitching in the league this year, and he wants them to give away their ace? Excuse me if I don't want to put the team's fortunes in the hands of the oft-injured Rich Harden and the still-unproven Randy Wells.

    I'm not familiar with the writer. It showed up on my Facebook page, and made me curious.

    I can't see trading a guy that could run of 12 wins in a row right now.That would seem a shade on the silly side.

    Just another sweet Cubs memory, even from before my time.

    The more I've read into our history, the more eye-opening it really is.

    Totally agree with you on that one.

    Once Ramirez gets back and starts hitting...(Mark my words.) The rest of the team WILL start hitting better. I just believe it's a confidence factor. once the best hitter gets back on the team, not only will the other hitters confidence get better but they will begin to get better pitches.

    Here's a wikipedia quote:

    The June 15 deadline deal for pitcher Ernie Broglio saw Brock, Jack Spring and Paul Toth head to St. Louis for Broglio, Bobby Shantz, and Doug Clemens. Cardinals general manager Bing Devine, specifically sought Brock at the insistence of Cardinals' manager Johnny Keane to increase team speed and solidify the Cardinals' lineup, struggling after the retirement of left fielder Stan Musial in 1963. At the time, many thought the deal was a heist for the Cubs. Broglio had led the National League in wins four years earlier, and had won 18 games the season before the trade.

    When they made the deal it doesnt really look that bad for the cubbies
    I'm assuming Brock had not been an all-star to that point in 63
    huh hind sight is 20-20
    on a possitive note, you guys got Harry Carey to broadcast Cubs games for a long time
    But I would still take Buck with no bias or nothing
