    Zambrano to the Bullpen

    Just got a tweet from Len and Bob that said Z is going to the bullpen, and will be the setup guy for Marmol starting Friday.

    re: Zambrano to the Bullpen

    If its temporary, like only missing one start then I'm fine with it. If its anything longer, this is the dumbest thing I have ever heard of.

    re: Zambrano to the Bullpen

    Did not see that coming at all.

    So now we have 2-3 innings of guys with great stuff and heart attack moments? No matter what, this will be interesting.

    re: Zambrano to the Bullpen

    I would probably bet that there's some attention-getting here for all the higher-priced players like Z and Soriano. Make sure that everyone knows that no one's spot is safe just because of your name and/or salary.

    Kinda, but not really. Wood couldn't start anymore so he had to go to the pen. In this case the pen needs Zambrano. He had a good start last night so I doubt this is happening because Z is failing.

    re: Zambrano to the Bullpen

    Can we just trade him to the Yankees already? Anything to get the monster contract and sideshow out of Chicago. His contract is starting to look at bad as Soriano's lately.


    Go Cubs Go!

    I really wish that teams would stop giving more than a 3-4 year contract to anybody. So many guys fall off once they get that extra stability, it has to be obvious to everyone that the odds are high when they offer these contracts. Then it becomes impossible to find another taker once it's too late

    Not saying it's too late for Z. I'm just really getting to hate the huge contracts.

    Re: Zambrano to the Bullpen

    Sounds like this will be short term. I wonder if they are trying to shop Gornzelanny or Silva right now for some bullpen help?
