BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-12-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could the Yank's plan B really include Carlos Zambrano? Is Chicago willing to just dump the contract, or would they need/want a good amount of talent back?
(Bill from Omaha)
The Cubs might be willing to deal the contract to get it off the books, and I could see one scenario where Big Z becomes a Jumbo Wells-style beloved competitor in the Bronx, balanced against another (less likely, IMO) scenario where he winds up like Ed Whitson. I think the downside is enough to keep this in the realm of entertaining speculation. (Christina Kahrl)
