Cubs get Chris Volstad and the Marlins only pay $2.5 MIL of Zambrano's $18 MIL 2012 salary.
Volstad, ouch. he had nice numbers in his rookie season of 2008, but since then, bad.
I figured the Cubs would trade Zambrano, but thought they would get some type of prospect even if it was a low grade prospect. what good is Volstad?
the guy walked off the team last year. he didn't want to be there, the cubs didn't want him there, and other teams knew that. i'm sure the cubs were quite happy to save the $2.5MM they could just to get him out of there.
