7/27 Big Z to Yankees? – UPDATE

ESPN’s Buster Olney reports Wednesday a source told him the Cubs are trying to get the Yankees to take Carlos Zambrano, and offering money to offset his salary. However, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports said the Yankees’ reply was: No interest.  The Cubs would have to get Big Z’s approval because he has a full no-trade clause. Zambrano is signed through 2012 plus a vesting option for 2013. He’s being paid $17.875 million this year, and is owed $18 million in 2012. The 2013 option is for $19.25 million. He will become a 10-and-5 player in early August. Zambrano (7-5, 4.70 ERA) is scheduled to start Wednesday at Miller Park against the Brewers. He’s won his last seven decisions at Miller Park and has a 2.40 ERA there. That stretch includes his no-hitter Sept. 14, 2008, against the Astros.

If the Cubs are just offering Big Z to the Yankees and do not want anything in return and even pay part of his salary, If I were the Yankees I would take it. He could be a big plus for the Yankees and he needs a change. It will do him good.

Big Z is a joke!!!!!

Big Z as in Zero!!!!! Bad deal for the Yankees

Yanks have enough losing pitchers however if they could get them to take AJ I’d do it in a heartbeat!

The Yankees need something to upgrade their rotation. Besides CC, what have we got? U don’t win the world series with Garcia or Colon. And AJ en Hughes turned out to be nothing but ‘back of the rotation’ pitchers. We need A+ number 2 and 3 starters… And bring Nova back up!
