Report: Cubs Trade Zambrano

(WSCR) Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting the Cubs have officially traded Carlos Zambrano to the Miami Marlins.

Ken Rosenthal first reported talks of the deal late Wednesday afternoon.

Subsequent reports indicate the Cubs will eat the bulk of the $19 million remaining on Zambrano’s contract. Right-handed pitcher Chris Volstad is rumored to be coming to Chicago in the trade.

Zambrano hasn’t pitched for the Cubs since he walked out on his team during an August 12 game in Atlanta.

After being ejected from the game for throwing at Braves third baseman Chipper Jones twice, Zambrano cleaned out his locker and threatened retirement, though he later retracted that statement.

In 24 starts for the Cubs in 2011,  the 30-year-old right-hander was 13-11 with a 4.82 ERA.

    This will mark a new era if they actually get something good in return for a former star. Too many times in the past, the for sale sign went up and weakened the negotiating position for somebody of quality in return. Negotiate as if Z has the potential to win a Cy Young.

    I guess Ozzie is getting closer to building a team, wait…I mean…asylum.


    The bad news is that your house is on fire.
    The other bad news is that a Roman fire department is here to put it out as long as they keep everything worth saving.
