Weekend Quick Hits: The Rumor Mill is Heating Up

  • Phil Rogers and the Chicago Tribune have put together their All-City team, which is released each year just before the Crosstown Showdown. Despite the better record for the White Sox, the North Siders have claimed five of the eight spots on the All-City squad.

  • Ken Davidoff tweets that Carlos Zambrano is not likely headed to New York. This week there have been several reports that the Yankees are not interested.

  • Zambrano will waive his no-trade clause if he is asked to, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX. Big Z complained to Rosenthal yesterday that he was quoted out of context. He emphasized that he loves Chicago and wants to remain a Cub.

  • Alfonso Soriano expects to stay with the Cubs, but if the team wants to trade him then he is willing to go.

  • The Yankees have an eye on Ryan Dempster, but right now it is unlikely that Demp will be dealt.

  • As Carrie Muskat mentioned on her blog, if the Cubs win today they will take back-to-back series for the first time this year.

  • Jake Peavy will come off the DL and pitch Wednesday against the Cubs.

Tonight the Cubs and Yankees play the rubber match of the three game series, with CC Sabathia pitching against Randy Wells on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball! Tomorrow I will have a Crosstown Showdown special post!
