"After this contract, I'm done," said Zambrano, who is signed through 2012 with a vesting option for 2013. "I'm serious. I don't want to play. I want to help this team, I want to do everything possible to win with this team, but after five years or four years, or whatever I have left on my contract, I just don't want to play."

He would have been on my short list of posssssssible 300 game winners currently in the bigs. Though I don't believe this 2012 stuff, this statement lets me know he probably doesn't have the heart to be throwing into his early 40's. You've been scratched off my list Big Z.

Agreed. I think the only thing that keeps him off that list is that messed up head of his.

Carlos, why wait until 2012? Retire now and enjoy life! Think of all you're missing!! Heck, maybe you can convince Soriano and Lilly to join you.

Call me crazy, but by 2012, I wouldn't be surprised if his arm is toast.

So, would you boost the payroll to 200 or 300 million dollars for the next three years and go out in style?
