09:40 AM ET 10.09 | The Marlins have interest in acquiring pitcher Carlos Zambrano - whom the Cubs want to trade - if Chicago picks up a large chunk of his $18 million salary for 2012 and doesn't expect a lot in return.

Gatorade vendors in the greater Miami area stand at attention.

Yeah, if you pay the salary, I will take a chance on him.

It looks like the Marlins want Zambrano on Chicago's dime.

And they'll get it too. The Cubs are are looking for the lowest bidder on this one.

Opening a new stadium with a known nutjob on the team is brilliant.

Him and Ozzie...who throws the first punch????

Zambrano and Ozzie. I'd pay to see that.

Could we interest them in John Lackey also?

Throw in Hanley Ramirez and you've got yourself a recipe for disaster.

I hate reality tv. That said. If the Marlins get Zambrano, I would watch a show where they follow him and Ozzie around. I'm thinking arguments by the end of spring training. A scuffle by June. And capped off, Ozzie will try to pull him out of a game in July....only to have a bench clearing brawl....as the opposing team watches..... Yup. I'd watch that train wreck. LOL

Think Milton Bradley is a free agent currently as well. I mean I know he's got assault charges pending, but Ozzie's gonna need backup. Carlos has all that doughnut weight....

Cubs should trade Zambrano to the Yankees for AJ Burnett straight up. Annual money matches. If there's a difference in the length of their respective deals, I'm sure something could be worked out. Cubs get rid of a major pain in the ****, and get a guy who may put up better #'s in the NL. Yankees get a power arm.
