Former Cubs ace Carlos Zambrano is ever-closer to severing his ties with Chicago. After nearly two months on the market, his 4,500-square foot crib in Lakeview is under contract for $2.4M, $100K off the original ask. Built in 2005, his 5-bed home's staid exterior belies a trove of amenities including Brazilian cherry floors, theater room, and a huge backyard patio. A history of explosive behavior and uneven performances forced the Cubs to drop the mercurial pitcher, who was traded to the Marlins ahead of the 2012 season. But before Big-Z can bid farewell to Chicagoland, he'll need to find a buyer for his River Forest digs. Not an easy task considering they've been languishing on the market for over a year.
