Been long overdue and finally Zambrano has issues with his arm. Cubs trainer says it's nothing. Zambrano says it's nothing. Dusty says it's nothing. Hendry says it's nothing.

One thing we know by now is that it's always something when a Cub's pitcher goes down with an injury. It normally takes about 1-2 months before they tell the truth. So that being said, what is the over/under for the number of starts Zambrano misses?

Im not real good at the over/under deal so im not gonna try! :-D
But I have heard that the peak age for injury in pitchers is 24. Zambrano is 24 this year, as is Harden. So far looks pretty accurate.

I'm sure that the Dusty defenders will be out in full force on this one. Wood, Prior, Zam....all coincidence.

I'll go under on that 5, but I'm sure it'll be close.

Is it coincindence that he comes up lame after throwing 136 pitches in his previous start? I don't think so.

Well the pitchers in bold are either hurt or on the DL right now. Not to mention D. Bautista from KC is on the DL at age 24.

And on the over/under, I'm not sure. I'd say he either misses just 1/2 starts or he misses over a month, it's hard to tell with those Cubs.

I can't stop thinking that one trade could have solved this. Imagine the Cubs bull-pen if they had of traded for Ugeth Urbina. THey would have had Latroy back at his natural set-up man position and Urbina Closing. So simple I don't see why it couldn't have happened.
