    The Cubs' $18,875,000 Man

    Today's stat-line for Zambrano:

    4 Hits
    4 ER
    1 Dugout Explosion
    Yanked after 1 inning pitched

    Money well spent, I'd say.

    Oh, and the Cubs have 1 hit through 5 innings. I'm sure there's some guys in that lineup who are also looking like good investments this year.

    Sorry, had to vent some frustration. At least it's Friday and there's beer in the fridge..

    Is there any hope for him, or is it time to cut losses and just cut him? Dude has issues.

    no way. when he finally loses it and just beats someone in the dugout with a bat, or starts hucking 100 mile an hour heaters into the stands, somebody's gonna get some pictures of that. they'll put it on a tee shirt and the cubs will make bank off the trademark rights.

    you gotta think outside the box!

    Haha, the Cubs are just pathetic this year.

    Here is a look at some wise investments for the Cubs:

    Soriano(19mil) .283 10 HR 35 RBI
    Zambrano(18.875m) solid 3 wins and a nice 5.10 ERA
    Ramirez(16.75m) .168 5 HR 22RBI
    Fukudome(14m) .275 6 HR 24 RBI
    Lee(13.25m) .233 10 HR 33 RBI

    Those are some pretty solid stats for the money they are making.
    It's great to be a Cubs fan

    Wow, I am as big a cubs fan as you will find but this is getting tough to watch even for me! I am used to them being out of it around the all star break but this is getting ridiculous. UGH!!

    I agree. although baseball has bored me the last few years a bit, even when the cubs were doing well. now I at least have a reason not to watch!

    Cubs suspend Zambrano indefinitely - MLB - Yahoo! Sports

    I see a complete Cubs house-cleaning after the season starting with Z, Lou and then on to many others.

    What a dysfunctional family.

    The Cubs are stuck with Z. They either keep him or pay somebody to take him....since they have to pay for him they might as well make him pitch until his arm falls off

    Z's math is interesting....

    Salary of $18,875,000/year
    Let's assume he gets 30 starts a year
    Let's assume he goes 7 innings per start

    That's $89,880 per INNING

    And he can't man-up and act like one? Amazing.

    I was a Zambrano fan from day 1, but his act is growing old these days. It was one thing when he was winning, but now he's pitching like a guy that needs to be released. An ERA north of 5.50 and 3 wins, for nearly $20 Million. Just 9 wins last year.

    I remember when the rotation was Wood-Prior-Zambrano, and everyone thought that staff would be dominant for years. Not so much.

    As a Sox fan, I can only say that it is never over,even for this Cubs team. They do play in the NL afterall. If they had a hot two weeks,like the Sox have had, they would be right back in it. BigZ is a special case,and I think he has dropped in velocity so he is just not as dominant anymore,but in the case of Lee,ARam,Soriano,ect...these guys will likely have some hot streaks and get back to their historic norms at some point. When that happens, they will have a winning streak. Just hope it starts next week,not today and tomorrow vs the Sox.
    The do have good starting pitching,which wins in the end...so hang in ,Cubs fans.
