Florida Becoming Chicago South!

Thumbnail image for 'Florida Becoming Chicago South!'
In what can only be described as a shocking move, a Chicago sports figure is moving to Florida. The Chicago Cubs reportedly traded Carlos Zambrano to the Miami Marlins (with approximately $15M) in exchange for Chris Volstad. Volstad’s numbers were mediocre last year, similar in many ways to Zambrano’s in Chicago… but he isn’t loco... Read more »

Cubs Must Send Jim Hendry Packing with Carlos Zambrano

Cubs Must Send Jim Hendry Packing with Carlos Zambrano
Jiim Hendry’s an idiot. Sometimes a writer will abuse a thesaurus in an effort to wax poetic when putting together a simple article, but this is not that time. As an old football coach of mine once said, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it still rolls around in sh**. Hendry was given... Read more »

Carlos Zambrano Retiring? The Cubs Need Crash Davis

Carlos Zambrano Retiring? The Cubs Need Crash Davis
On the day that Dennis Rodman, arguably the craziest professional athlete in Chicago’s colorful history, was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame, the latest nutcase may have written his final chapter. After getting torched for five home runs, and a subsequent ejection for throwing at future Hall of Famer Chipper Jones, Carlos Zambrano apparently cleaned... Read more »

The Chicago Cubs Should Trade Carlos Zambrano... And Might Be Able To!
If you went to bed early on Monday night, you missed a number of pretty major pieces of sports news. The Baltimore Ravens blew a 21-point lead in Houston, but took an interception back for a touchdown to win in overtime.

Their closer, Francisco Rodriguez (aka KRod), left Citi Field in handcuffs after a “domestic dispute.” According to NY Police, Rodriguez punched his girlfriend’s father, injuring the man and causing police to get involved. On Monday, the Mets announced that Rodriguez would need season-ending surgery to... Read more »

Carlos Zambrano: Epic Disaster

Carlos Zambrano: Epic Disaster
On Monday afternoon, Chicago Cubs GM Jim Hendry announced that starting/relief/not-really pitcher Carlos Zambrano would enter some form of treatment program and would be placed on baseball’s “restricted list” until after the All Star Break. Restricted? My suggestion is that the Cubs treat Zambrano the way he treated his teammates on Saturday, and the way... Read more »

The Cubs Should Trade Soriano and Zambrano: Here's How

I am not beginning an “end-of-the-world” Cubs argument. However, let’s be realistic. The 2010 Chicago Cubs are struggling, and need help all over the diamond. It’s questionable whether or not this team has the pieces to be a factor in this year’s wild card race, much less make a play for the National League Central... Read more »

Chicago Cubs Move Carlos Zambrano To Bullpen!

“Because of his stuff,” Chicago Cubs manager says Opening Day starter Carlos Zambrano is moving to the bullpen beginning Friday. So now the Cubs have Alfonso Soriano making $18 million to play seven innings in left and Zambrano making $17.875 to pitch 3-5 innings per week. Jim Hendry: EPIC FAIL. Manager Lou Piniella went on to... Read more »
