Multiple sources...Z is just about gone

Ken Rosenthal, who has been wrong an awful lot lately, tweeted today that the Cubs were close to trading Carlos Zambrano to the Miami Marlins.

I dismissed that until I heard the rumor from another source...

Well, Jon Heyman (who's been wrong about a lot of stuff lately too) is now also promoting this rumor.

So it seems there are legs to this.

Chris Volstad appears to be the return for Z.  Volstad is another "blah" pitcher who has a career 4.59 ERA in 4 seasons.

I would also assume the Cubs will eat most of Z's 2012 contract.

Stay tuned.  People are saying that an announcement might come as soon as tomorrow.
