Phillies sign Carlos Zambrano
Over the weekend there was a report from the Dominican Republic that the Phillies had signed Carlos Zambrano. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. denied the report, calling it ridiculously premature.
And today the Phillies announced that theyve signed Zambrano to a minor-league contract. So yeah, next time Amaro calls something ridiculously premature thats just code for will happen within a week.
