Zambrano says he’s happy with trade to Marlins



CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Carlos Zambrano says he is excited about the trade that sent him from the Chicago Cubs to the Miami Marlins last week, expressing confidence that it will boost his career.

The hot-tempered right-hander was a three-time All-Star with the Cubs, but he feuded with teammates, management and umpires. Miami is hoping he will get back on track while pitching for his Venezuelan countryman, new Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen.
