It’s with a heavy heart that I report that it’s done. Carlos Zambrano has been traded to the Miami Marlins for pitcher Chris Volstad.
To review, the Miami Marlins now feature Ozzie Guillen, Logan Morrison, Hanley Ramirez, Jeffrey Loria, and Carlos Zambrano. That’s a whole lotta crazy in one organization.
I won’t go into all the reasons I wanted Z to stay because it’s only going to make me cry. Instead, let’s talk about Chris Volstad. The 25-year old righty posted a 4.89 ERA in 2011, went 5-13 and had a WHIP of 1.42 with 117 Ks.
No word yet on the money terms. More information as it comes in.
