Report: Yankees targeting Carlos Zambrano?

After missing out on Cliff Lee, Bill Madden of the New York Daily News is reporting the Yankees are turning their attention to trading for Carlos Zambrano.

Carmelo not coming to Bulls, but another Nugget might be

The theory in Denver is that if the Nuggets trade Carmelo Anthony to the New York Knicks or New Jersey Nets, then they are going to strip their roster and rebuild. That means moving Chauncey Billups and most likely J.R. Smith.

The Bulls traded for Smith - and immediately traded him to Denver - a few seasons ago and would give the Bulls another strong weapon off the bench. (probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com)

The worst seventh-inning stretch performances of all time

Just 14 years ago, Cubs fans heard quite possibly the worst rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" ever. 

Ozzy Osbourne, lead vocalist for Black Sabbath, took the mic that 2003 afternoon at Wrigley and made eardrums bleed. It was that painful. 

It got "In the Loop" thinking, what were some other horrendous singing performances? 

From Da Coach to Scottie Pippen, the video above mashes up the worst of the worst.
