Zambrano's former River Forest home, a 4,000-square-foot dwelling located on the 500 block of Edgewood near the Des Plaines River.

OK, normally we don’t like to be quoting two other news sources ahead of us on a story. But it is almost Opening Day and there is a baseball connection so we’ll make an exception.

Patch reports that the Tribune reported that Carlos Zambrano, the hot-tempered former Cubs pitching ace, has finally sold his home in River Forest. The six-bedroom home on Edgewood Place, that’s over near the Des Plaines River, sold for $675,000. Now back in 2006 Zambrano bought the home for $1.119 million. That would make for a loss of $444,000. Pity the nearest water cooler when Big Z got that report from his Realtor.

He first listed the house for sale in 2011 and the asking price was $969,000.
