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

Sep 16, 2009, 12:53 PM EDT

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 notes was in stark contrast to the “person who was singing in the clubhouse before his start against the Brewers.”

    Man I hope they don’t trade Zambrono. He’s a really great pitcher, and because of him the cubs have made some improvements. I do agree that they do need more improvement in the future, I just hope they can do it with Zambrono, and Soriono, and the rest of the Cubs team.

    I hope Zambrano stays with the Scrubs. His meltdowns are priceless and only add to the agony felt by those idiot fans on the north side of Chicago as they whine because they missed out on the playoffs AGAIN!
