Carlos Zambrano, who re-joined the team today, told Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times that he loves Chicago, but will waive his no-trade clause if the Cubs approach him with a potential trade.

Earlier today, Buster Olney of ESPN told us that the Cubs are “resigned” to the fact that if they are able to trade Zambrano, it will happen during the offseason.
