    Cubs to get rid of Zambrano?

    Looks like Lou said he was going to talk to Hendry about it during his post game interview. Gosh i hope we get rid of him.

    It might be a worse situation than Bradley. Zambrano's deal is ugly.

    Re: Cubs to get rid of Zambrano?

    I'd rather Hendry pay for that then put up with his crap the rest of the season.

    Big Z will get interest from other teams. Ozzie would take him in a heartbeat.

    Ozzie asked if he could manage Z: "Yes I can, and that's not tampering."

    Guillen still has plans to go to dinner with Z tonight. Asked what he would say to him about the blowup? "Nothing."


    The Sox would not take on any of his salary, I feel confident saying that.

    Zambrano would literally be a mop up reliever for the Sox. He would not crack the rotation, or the first 5 of the pen.

    Re: Cubs to get rid of Zambrano?

    Lou never once said they would talk about getting rid of him. Never once hinted at what the consequences would be. All he said is they would talk about what happened and at the least, Zambrano would have to apologize.

    I probably can cut Big Z loose from my fantasy baseball team.

    AJ is a head case but at least when he was getting bombed the other night he stayed in the game and threw 100 pitches. Million dollar arm and twenty cent brain.

    Exactly, plus he's got a lot of baggage.


    If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right!!
