Zambrano issues classy statement
MIAMI — Newly acquired Marlins right-hander Carlos Zambrano, who had his share of success and controversy while with the Cubs, issued a classy parting statement to the people of Chicago.
“I’d like to thank the Chicago media and reporters for more than 10 years covering me and supporting me in the good times and bad,” Zambrano said. “I tried my best to answer all your questions and I thank you for having patience with me and please forgive my poor behavior at times. Chicago will always be in my heart.”
The Marlins traded Chris Volstad for Zambrano on Thursday.
