Ozzie Guillen and Carlos Zambrano, together with the Marlins?

It’s no secret that the Cubs will do whatever they can to get rid of Carlos Zambrano this offseason and now that Ozzie Guillen is headed to the Marlins there’s speculation that Zambrano could join him in Florida.

Guillen has always been very public in his support of Zambrano over the years and the two Venezuelans are off-field friends, going to dinner together in Chicago after the game that led the Cubs to suspend Zambrano following a dugout scuffle with teammate Derrek Lee last season.

Zambrano has one season and $18 million remaining on his contract and Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago speculates that Guillen will push the Marlins to add him to the rotation, presumably while asking the Cubs to eat a huge portion of that money and take a low-level prospect (or maybe even nothing) in return.

    Ohhh, Poor, poor Gator….. Buddha is not being gracious to him at all…

      Think he’s suffered enough.

        Apparently, some think he has not suffered enough.

      About the only thing left, is for Ozzie to move in next door and have his dog soil his front lawn.

        Ahhh….Check that. “The Dodgers-McCourt case may implicate the Marlins”

      I think I’d rather sit down in an outhouse whose commode hosted a very large and cranky Pituophis melanaleucus than seriously contemplate this. Hell, I’d rather sit down in an outhouse that hosted Judge Holden. I am going to hope that past a certain point, Larry Beinfest isn’t really that stupid, even if Ozzie, or even Scrooge and the Chihuahua, really are.

    Maybe Ozzie can bring Pierzinski along too. And they could talk Milton Bradley and Manny out of retirement to join LoMo in the outfield, sign Rasmus’ dad to be hitting coach and Fernando Rodney to close games.

      If they could just squeeze in an Ollie Perez signing, that would just be swell.

      I agree with all of that except Rodney. I wouldn’t cry if Valverde took his act to south beacht too.

        Then they could make Rodney the setup man. He loves that.

    This will either be a match made in heaven or a scrap fest for the ages…

    …I kind of hope it’s the later, I’m sure Craig and Aaron do too.

    Oh, man, as an east coaster, I have to confess I’m really looking forward to all the CRAZY the two of them will bring ton the NL East. Hell, Logan Morrison (they do plan to hang on to LoMo, don’t they?) will probably be the voice of calm and reason down there.
