Quote of the Day: 'It's because they don't like me anymore'

0 Comments

Carlos Zambrano, in response to a question about whether he’d seen yesterday’s report that the Cubs plan to shop him this offseason:

Why, are you guys the general manager now? I don’t care. If the Cubs want to trade me, it’s because they don’t like me anymore. I have to move on. What else can I do? Just move on.

Zambrano understandably wasn’t in great mood after a poor outing against the Brewers, but those are seemingly the words of someone willing to waive his no-trade clause. However, when asked specifically about potentially doing that he responded: “No, I don’t want to. What kind of question is that? That’s enough.”
He then left the interview room, which as Carrie Muskat of MLB.com notes was in stark contrast to the “person who was singing in the clubhouse before his start against the Brewers.”
