I worry about taking Zambrano at this point also with the rising WHIP and walks. Now his lower back is giving him fits too. I like guys like Peavy and Haren better.
You like Danny Haren over Carlos Zambrano? He'll be healthy by next year, and the Cubs will have D-Lee back.
Yes I do, but only because I try and be as safe as possible with pitchers. I worry about Zambrano's years of abuse, the increasing walk rate, and the increasing WHIP. The back just added to my concerns.....do those injuries go away? I don't know.
Haren has improving WHIP, K/BB, a good AL ERA, and no real injury history. Zambrano probably has more upside, but I'd put Haren in the same tier and think I would rather have him. (I have both of them in my money league team and have to drop one. I think about this issue a lot!
