At least according to ESPN...

I'm disappointed about seeing the end of Zambrano in Chicago, if only because we can no longer look forward to the annual "Carlos Zambrano did (insert amazing story)" threads.

Please see:

- Zambrano gives the Cubs an ultimatum
- Zambrano, Barrett get it on in dugout!
- Zambra-NoNo (a feel good story!)
- Carlos Zambrano retires...I think...

With all that in mind, he's now paired with Ozzie Guillen, which could lead to a whole new world of complete and total insanity.

Please see:

- Ozzie Guillen is pissing me off
- Ozzie Guillen gets...an extension?!
- The worst managed inning in baseball history
- Ozzie Guillen Out as White Sox Manager, Likely in As Marlins Manager

What could possibly lie ahead? Will they embrace lovingly every time Zambrano is pulled? Will they fist fight during a press conference? Will they co-star in a Viagra commercial? It's endless ...

This can't miss. Miami's only on the hook for $3 million; a steal since they'll get $100 million worth of entertainment.

Ozzie plus Zambrano has an attempted murder charge getting filed at some point in the season sound to it.

I started two of those four Cubs threads. It's fun looking back on them all, so thanks for that work, cfgb.

Here are the current results to a poll on the Chicago Tribune website, asking "How do you feel about the trade?"

Elated -- no more drama at Wrigley hopefully (1696 responses)- 60%

Sad -- such a waste of talent (872 responses) - 31%

Disappointed -- Cubs should have given him one more shot (250 responses) - 9%

These are the current responses/votes. I would have chosen either "It should have been done years ago" or "It's about freaking time" over "Elated", because we all know there will be more drama at Wrigley.

Zambrano will have a better rest of his career than Volstad or Travis Wood.

Zambrano's numbers were almost exactly parallel to Dempster's at four years younger.

Now they want to trade Garza too. Welcome to 1974, and the part of Pete LaCock will be played by Bryan LaHair.

Agreed. But it was time for him to move on. Al Yellon has a pretty good breakdown of the various incidents that Z has got into the last few years. http://www.bleedcubbieblue.com/2012/1/5/2683353/carlos-zambrano-trade-marlins-memories#storyjump

Point of order, nobody can fill the LaCock-shaped hole better than Dick Pole.

Look, the Cubs already have Reed Johnson, and both Matthew Szczur and Jeff Samardzija sound like they are uncircumcised a little. Plus, we now have Junior Lake on the 40 man roster, so our list of various penis-related names is completely full.

and I believe Dick Trickle is a fan.

I don't think you realize how bad of a pitcher Zambrano has become. I like this trade and I think the trade the Cubs just made for Rizzo was pretty good too. If the Cubs can dump Soriano on some poor team Theo should get a parade.

Yes, but does LaHair have a father who hosts game shows (Peter Marshall)?

Never Mind, Cubs just traded Cashner to SD for Rizzo. He will be the long-term solution at 1st..

They will be paying 85% of his contract anyway, and I believe he will be certainly better next year than Volstad.

Uhm, what? You need all kinds of luck to win 116 (which I think is the current standard). So many things can go wrong that it's bloody unlikely. Are they better? Yeah. But not THAT much better.
