11/14 Lunch with Big Z
We’re not sure who picked up the tab but Theo Epstein and Carlos Zambrano met for lunch Monday in Chicago. Zambrano’s agent, Barry Praver, was there. Epstein, the Cubs president of baseball operations, had said he wanted to talk to the pitcher face to face before deciding what steps to take. Zambrano flew in from Venezuela, where is pitching for Caribes. His last start was Saturday.
