I think he should be better but I expect him to be inconsistent.

No, they (Yahoo, anyway) corrected it after a while.

I think that scrum with Barrett may have been the best thing that could have happened to him.

(Any thoughts on how to piss off Adam LaRoche?)

2 QS in a row for the first time this season, but still slightly off pace for his prediction of 20 Wins...
CHICAGO (AP) -- Carlos Zambrano delivered with his pitches and his bat. Then he delivered this message: "Big Z is back on track," he said.

Looking more like the NL All-Star he was last season than the erratic pitcher who got into a fight with his catcher, Michael Barrett, 10 days before, Zambrano had one of his strongest outings against a favorite opponent Monday night.

I trade away Big Z on 2 of my leagues but I yield back Jeter and Manny. I think Zambrano will pitch better the rest of the way, I mean he can't be much worth than now anyways. I just don't know if he will live up to his potential of being the ACE of your staff.

Z has always been inconsistent. Just take a look at his monthly splits from year to year. He is the classic momentum pitcher. When he is feeling good about himself he is good as anyone in the game, but when he doesn't he's hittable and walks too many.

As a fantasy owner you almost need to treat Zambrano the way you treat someone like Andruw Jones, ie, just put him in the lineup every week and then forget about him. In the end, his numbers will be there, but if you watched him week to week or start to start he would drive you nuts.
