Hey, if you don’t ask for something, no one is going to give you anything. But sometimes it’s possible to ask too much.
That seems to be the case with the Cubs who, with an admirable amount of bravery, asked the Yankees to take Carlos Zambrano off their hands recently. They were reportedly offering to kick in lots of money too, but the Yankees weren’t biting. Frankly, I’d think that the Cubs could chip in almost all of his salary and the Yankees would say no.
Zambrano, by the way, is owed $23 million through the end of next year and is currently suffering through his worst season since he broke in for a cup of coffee back in 2001. So you see the central problem here.
