    I don't want to bother to click through, but why wouldn't it be Zambrano?

    That's what I'm wondering... I fully expect Big Z to take the mound on opening day. Maybe they are just stirring the pot a little.

    Dempster did have better numbers last season.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Re: Cubs near to pointing out opening day starter.

    Zambrano is on the record saying he doesn't care. Seeing as how he always seems to way too amped up for that game, I say give it to Theodore Roosevelt Lilly.

    Re: Cubs near to pointing out opening day starter.

    I'd be shocked if it's not Big Z. Then have Lilly,Harden,Dempster and Marshall if Marshall ends up at the 5 spot.

    Re: Cubs near to pointing out opening day starter.

    What's the significance of an opening day starter? Aren't there like 3000 more starts throughout the season?

    Re: Cubs near to pointing out opening day starter.

    Do the Cubs start at home or on the road this year?
