Zambrano thinking retirement?: "It's been a disappointing season," he replied. "People say, 'Why can't you pitch like that all the time?' It's not all the time I feel like that."

Then again, Big Z's emotions sometimes get away from him.

Probably go into politics.

Eh, big deal. Does anyone still care about Zambrano? He's been in decline since '06, and the only year he got more than 16 wins was '07, when his peripherals took a sharp turn downward. He doesn't pitch deep into games and his K-rate is way down (his last start notwithstanding). And he seems like too much of a hothead to turn himself into a finesse pitcher.

The best thing that can come from this is that the new Cubs ownership gracefully accepts his retirement, then pointedly asks Soriano to follow suit.

He's got two silver slugger awards. Maybe they should make him a relief pitcher/pinch hitter.
