9/21 Could Z return? Q: “It’d be tough”

One of the things on the new Cubs’ GM’s to do list will be to figure out what to do with Carlos Zambrano. He was placed on the disqualified list after his abrupt departure from the ballpark Aug. 12 in Atlanta.

“‘Z’ was a good pitcher in this mix and you miss that,” Mike Quade said Wednesday. “Again, the situation dictated how we handled it as far as I’m concerned and you move on past that. You can argue all day long on principle, or, ‘What are we going to do?’ I think what took place needed to be addressed and was, and whatever holes are left because of that, so be it.”

Zambrano does have another year remaining on his contract. Could he come back to the Cubs?

“I’m not calling the shots,” Quade said. “I never say never to anything and I think [Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts] is on record with what he said. That’s out of my hands and the least of my worries. We need to finish strong and see what happens this winter.”

Maybe the question is whether Quade thinks Zambrano could come back.

“I don’t know,” Quade said. “That’s a tough question for me to answer. I’d like his arm back if he fit into the mix. It would be tough for him to come back, for me. If he did, then you deal with it. It would be tough.”

I’d rather see Z come back than Quade.

Amen brother. Quade hasn’t been calling the shots all year. And that is not the only tough question for Quade to answer either. Quade is now on record saying it would be tough for him to have Zambrano back, just one more reason for the new GM to replace Quade. Can you imagine the new GM thinking who is more valuable to the team? Zambrano WITH all his baggage is still the better choice over Quade and all HIS inferior managerial skills not to mention nicknaming EVERYBODY.

It will tough to bring back Quade
