Chicago Cubs manager Mike Quade says Carlos Zambrano cleaned out his locker and “walked out” on the team after giving up five homers in Friday night’s 10-4 loss to the Atlanta Braves.
When Ricketts and his siblings took over the Cubs, he knew he needed to make significant changes to the baseball business, and he was not shy about telling people close to him about his plans.
By Matt Abbatacola- CHICAGO (CBS) Lately, the Cubs have looked like the team that Tom Ricketts, Jim Hendry, and Mike Quade envisioned when they began the 2011 season. They hit ten home runs in the final three […]
Baseball watchers everywhere are trying to figure out exactly what it was that the Chicago Cubs were up to last weekend at the MLB trade deadline.
Starlin Castro homered and Matt Garza pitched seven shutout innings to lead the Chicago Cubs to a 1-0 win over the sliding Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday night.
In case you haven’t been paying much attention to the Cubs this season Quade has a curious way of calling almost every guy on his team by a name that they weren’t born with.
If the Cubs trade Zambrano and still have to pay the majority of his freight – as was rumored in the proposed deal with the Yankees – then how does that help the Cubs?
MLB Network’s Peter Gammons knows Pat Gillick well and believes the longtime baseball executive would have serious interest in joining the Cubs.
The Cubs needed some help to win at home against Houston and thankfully, the Astros were happy to provide it. Zambrano earned his 7th win on the season as the Cubs defeated Houston 4-2.

Admit it Chicago, you’ve probably never relished the All Star break as much as this year. Mind you, I said the break and not the All Star game itself. The game is a joke but that’s a story for another day. What I’m talking about is having a few days away from the terrible season we are witnessing on both sides of town.
