"[Cubs general manager] Jim [Hendry] spent a lot of money. I hope he has more for 'Big Z.'"
That could be the quote of the offseason. Carlos Zambrano has apparently declared that the Cubs have until opening day to sign him to a Zito-esque deal or he will walk after 2007.
Of course this makes me happy bc it appears to be a lose-lose deal for the Cubs. Devote 20 million per season to a pitcher or lose your ace and workhorse.
I also love that he referred to himself as Big Z.
