08:09 AM ET 11.09 | Theo Epstein and Co. have already started ruling by new math -- addition by subtraction. While adding players is a top priority, subtracting players such as Carlos Zambrano is also extremely important. ... [610 Sports Radio] in Kansas City spoke with Royals GM Dayton Moore who indicated that he would consider taking on Zambrano if the deal made sense for his club. "We would have to be interested. We would have to explore it because that's what you should do. You should explore every opportunity. Carlos Zambrano is a heckuva competitor," said Moore. "Carlos Zambrano has had a lot of success in the major leagues. Carlos Zambrano is actually a very pleasant, easy going, classy person off the field."

The Royals must have an extra bucket of balls sitting in the corner of the clubhouse for trade bait.

Too bad the Royals wouldn't be acquiring Zambrano for his off the field personality.

Get insurance for the Gatorade machines, Dayton

In all seriousness, is Zambrano (and his declined abilities) worth a mid-level prospect or would he be too big of a cancer to a young, enthusiastic clubhouse?

Hey Theo, pay 3/4 of his salary and the Red Sox will take him off your hands.

I have to agree with you. I would tread VERY carefully with acquiring Zambrano if I were the Royals

go for it! a little excitement in KC is a good thing. Make them eat money though, you are a small market team and they just want him out of town.

Zambrano is still a good deal for many teams at about 2 million and a minor prospect. That is about all anyone would have to shell out for him. The Cubs would gladly sever ties with him and eat the remainder of his final year just as long as they could push him out the door. They will certainly find a way to get it done

if mike maddux become the cubs manager, he most likely will be reunited with his brother gregg maddux!!

November 9, 2011  12:25 PM ET

zambrano create his own tumb!!

November 9, 2011  12:27 PM ET

the negative attitude from this player create great commotion in the cubs roster not only in the field but in the outfield as well!!

angels are in need in their rotation, the halos remain short by two pitchers if zambrano its shipped to orange county he would be wellcome to play with dan haren, jered weaver, santana, now if zambrano would like to beheave better he may get a long contract in the big A!!

November 9, 2011  12:34 PM ET

epstein should clean the house and he has to fix the cubs rotation in order to be able to compete against the cubs top division!!

because zambrano its a classy person that's why the cubs would like to send him to any team, but in reality this guy can pitch, whenever he its in the right day he could give a great battle to any team!!
