Carlos Zambrano on his impending free agency:
“I like the Yankees, but I don’t see myself pitching at Yankee Stadium. Too many rules,” he said with a laugh. “If I play in New York, it’s going to be with the Mets. First of all, because I get to hit. And I love hitting.
“I can’t say … that I would never play for the Yankees. Hopefully no, but you never know. This is a business.”
So if the Yankees dump a truck of cash on his doorstep, he’d consider signing. Otherwise, he’d use the team for leverage. Given the way Cashman has been running things, I doubt we’ll see Big Z in pinstripes next season.
