Big Z to the ‘pen

I guess I messed up one too many times, huh?

As I am sure you have heard by now, the Cubs have elected to move Carlos Zambrano to the bullpen making room for Ted Lilly in the starting rotation. While this may come as a surprise to some, many could see this move coming. Z has been on the decline over the past few years and this year he has gotten off to a pretty bad start going 1-2 with a 7.45 ERA. The Cubs say he is going to start out as a set-up man and work him back into the rotation after they can trade for a bonafide stopper and my advice is to keep him on your team on a trail basis. He may be one of those guys who thrives in the ‘pen because he only has to pitch one inning and go 100% the entire time. I know Carlos Marmol has been killing it, but what if he goes down or goes into a funk? Would Lou have enough faith in Zambrano to have him close? Stay tuned, this may get interesting.
