Via tweet from ESPN’s Buster Olney:
Heard this: The Cubs have made it clear to other teams that they are ready to move Carlos Zambrano, if anyone is interested. #trades
Of course, there’s the matter of nearly $42 million left on Z’s contract to consider. The Cubs would have to eat a lot of it or take someone else’s bad deal in return. SB Nation Chicago suggested a swap of Z to the White Sox for Jake Peavy, which would give the Sox a pitcher they need, who could be handled by his manager, in exchange for Peavy’s risk of never pitching again.
As always, we await developments.
