Carlos Zambrano good start against Marlins?

Postby jebatzel » Mon Jul 07, 2003 2:42 pm

1 and 3 his last 6 starts with 4.75 era.

He started the season pretty good, but I am debating dropping him. Adam Eaton is pitching against Dodgers tomorrow and seems to have better match up than Zambrano.

ideas?

I've got Zambrano as well. I still haven't decided yet. :-?

I have Carlos too but am hedging on him. He's the polar opposite of Prior on the mound - Carlos works himself into an emotional frenzy, and I don't think it's helping his pitching. Plus the Cubs middle relief has been so shaky lately, no lead is guaranteed.

I just dropped Zambrano 2 minutes ago. His WHIP is killing me over the last month and I'm in a tight race for saves so I picked up Hasegawa for now. I don't hesitate on dropping slumping young pitchers that I picked up on the waiver wire to begin with.

I did get him the first couple weeks of the season and his K numbers have been pretty good, but that was before I got Pedro.

10ks aready today against Yankees.

Here are my current pitchers:
SP Zambrano, Carlos (RP, SP-ChC)
SP Webb, Brandon (RP, SP-Ari)
SP Ishii, Kazuhisa (SP-LA)
SP Martinez, Pedro (SP-Bos)
SP Williams, Jerome (SP-SF) (stop starter pickup for today)
RP Biddle, Rocky (RP, SP-Mon)
RP Foulke, Keith (RP-Oak)
RP Rivera, Mariano (RP-NYY)
Bench Meche, Gil (SP-Sea)
Bench Vargas, Claudio (SP-Mon)
Bench Rueter, Kirk (SP-SF)
Bench Maddux, Greg (SP-Atl)



Thanks for the info on Hasegawa I lost saves last week and he could be a good pick up.

And, now that Patterson is out for the year, the Cub offense is shaky. Think I'll look at the free agent list again - mine includes Pavano, Vargas, Penny, Wade Miller, and Seo.

So drop Zambrano and pick up Eaton for tomorrow? (faces Dodgers)

Florida probably won't be nice to Zambrano.

Or I could pickup John Garland against the Dodgers.

Zambrano has also had more than his share tough pitching matchups for a "#3-#4" starter, which I'm sure have contributed to his low win total. Since May 9, mound opponents have included Matt Morris (twice), Wade Miller, Oswalt, David Wells, Colon (twice), Myers, and today Dontrelle Willis!

I have both Zambrano and Willis. I started Willis and benched Zambrano. Wasn't expecting a pitcher's duel. Oops.

I have both and started both. So far it's done very well for my ERA. Knock on wood.
