News Flash: Carlos Zambrano is available

3 Comments

You’re not gonna believe this one from Buster Olney’s column this morning:

Heard this: The Cubs have made it clear that Carlos Zambrano, who is owed about $42 million left on his contract, is very much available.

This is either a refreshing example of self-awareness and a flash of delicious irony on Buster Olney’s part — realizing the true, troublesome nature of the “heard this” piece — or else it’s evidence that you can safely hold off on that ESPN Insider subscription for another six months.

Either way, I’ll keep passing along gems like this so you won’t miss anything.
