    This would be a huge mistake for the Cubs. I really don't think it will happen though.

    this will not happen. zambrano said he wanted to end his career after his current contract as a lifetime cubbie. i don't see him waiving his no-trade clause since he has repeatedly said that money is not what he is after.

    Zambrano for Cabrera or Gardner? No way. I'll drive down to Chicago and personally beat Hendry if he makes that trade. That deal maybe makes sense if the Yankees throw in Hughes and Chamberlain.

    Re: Big Z as a Bronx Bomber.....?

    I would have no problem with dealing Z if they could get some good value for him but not really sure I want what the Yankees have to offer. Cabrera and Gardner are not good every day OF, Joba is so inconsistent and you still don't know if he's got what it takes to be a starter or not and Hughes is kind of the same way too.

    Jim Hendry is the worst GM in the history of sports. He's just dumb enough to make it happen; and pay 3/4 of his salary.

    Re: Big Z as a Bronx Bomber.....?

    I will be ****** if the Yankees get rid of any of the 4. Gardner is a great option as a 4th outfielder, and a helluva weapon late in games off the bench on the base paths. Chamberlain and Hughes are really young and have another 10 years plus on their careers, they just need to stick them in their places and go instead of moving them all over between starting and the pen.

    If the Cubs get some pitching with it and Gardner, I say it's worth looking at.

    I really don't think Melky or Gardner are anything more than a 4th OF. You can find those types on the FA market right now basically. Hughes is in about every Yankee trade rumor for a reason and Joba is over-rated IMO so dealing a guy that is probably a #2 starter on a good team for some spare parts is a terrible idea.

    Hendry is going to have to work some magic with a tight payroll this offseason because he's probably fired if the Cubs miss the playoffs again.

    For the amount of money they're making, Joba and Hughes are both HUGE steals.

    Cubs would only get 1 or the other not both probably. Still worth it?
