    Zambrano headed to the restricted list

    The Cubs will place Carlos Zambrano on the restricted list tomorrow, according to MLB.com's Carrie Muskat (via Twitter). Players on the restricted list do not count towards a team's 25-man or 40-man roster, so the Cubs will be able to add a player to replace Zambrano. It's not the first time a prominent player has been placed on the restricted list this year; former Cub Milton Bradley spent time on the restricted list earlier in the year, and so did Yorvit Torrealba.
    By placing Zambrano on the restricted list, the Cubs free up a roster spot and provide themselves with time to determine their next move. Players on the restricted list may not sign with other teams. The Mariners paid Bradley while he was on the restricted list, but teams do not always pay players on the restricted list.

    Z will also be getting treated for anger management issues. That seems like a fruitless endeavor. It could be funny to watch though.

    Cubs' Zambrano going on restricted list, getting treatment; out till after All-Star break - Chicago Breaking Sports

    I guess this is what happens when you are completely untradeable.

    It's not like Z has helped this team win this year anyway, but I'm with ya. Shut it down, or figure it out.

    Thanks. That means a lot, I think. Or something.......

    It was hard enough to type the first time, but reliving it isn't making it any easier.

    The Washington Senators? After spawning the Twins and then the Rangers, they just gave up. That said, the Rangers are right there.

    How about the Washington Generals? The Globetrotters have been kicking their ***** for ever.

    The Cubs have done nothing with much more talent than the Rangers have ever had which makes it even more pathetic.

    All the Rangers have ever had is Nolan Ryan... who alone makes the Franchise stronger than the Cubs.

    No one pisses away talent more than the Cubs.
