Mets want Big Z!

Quote:
June 6, 2007 -- If the Cubs end up putting ace pitcher Carlos Zambrano on the trading block, the Mets will go after him.

According to one MLB team executive, the Mets would be "heavily involved" if the Cubs look to trade Zambrano.

The 26-year-old righty is set to be a free agent after the season, and the Cubs could potentially deal him prior to the July 31 deadline.

Zambrano, who got into a fight with Cubs catcher Michael Barrett last week, is 5-5 with a 5.62 ERA in 12 games this year for the Cubs. Last year he was 16-7 with a 3.41 ERA and 210 strikeouts. He threw over 200 innings in each of the last four years.
Many will be quick to say...let's do it! I think it would depend on what we could get back... but do we want Z to be another one that got away? If the Cubs have no intention of re-signing him, maybe because he isn't going to go to an AL team, which would be the only way I would feel truly comfortable to let him go. If he gets back on track, I sure wouldn't want the Cubs to have to face him. Gosh, I just wish he would figure it out and soon and give the Cubs a reason to re sign him. Hendry already said that he has been given the green light to spend more money if come the deadline time and the Cubs are still in contention (and in this division, we really should be.) Z has always given the Cubs a little bit of soap opera action...but now, we need him to buckle down and give the management a reason to keep him in Cubbie Blue Pinstripes.

Im sorry, but I know a lot of people on here are upset with Z as am I. In saying that though, we cant let him go. He will regain his form at some point. When you have a horse like that- 200-230 innings a year- you have to keep that. I was reading Larussa's book- 3 Nights in August- its all about a series late in the season vs. the Cubs in SL in 2003. It actually happened the week before we took 4 out 5 from them at home. He mentioned that Z scared him more than Prior or Wood. Its really a good book. You have to admit the guy when he plays wants to win as bad as anyone. He hustles on everything. Sure hes a little emotional and he whipped Barretts you know what but it would be hard to part with something like that.

3 nights in august is such a good book; i love buzz bissinger's stuff.

i've also read in a couple of places (i'll quote hunt later) that if the yanks still contend for the wild card in july they'll shop A-Rod for pitching, likely to whoever gives the best deal of the W/Sox (Buerhle) and the Cubs (Z). Obviously there'd be others involved, and extensions would be necessary on both sides. But yikes!

I know Z is a potential great, but A-Rod (and i genuinely hate to bring this up: its so cubs.com, but its become a real thing) is already a great, and our minor league pitching is (streaks) better than our ml shortstops (relative statements both).

This summer could be pretty wild...

I do like Z and love his potential, but his attitude sucks, and his arm is a concern. If we could get something like a package that includes Lasting Milledge, Mike Pelfrey, and Aaron Heilman, I'd say do it. If we're going to sell low, we're better off keeping him.

My concern though is if we don't sign him to a long term deal, then he becomes a FA at the end of the year and we get NOTHING for him at all.

There in lies the problem. Trade him now and get something in return, or hope he resigns with us.
