Being in the club 3 years running means he's been the exception to the rule in 2 of the past 3 years, yes?

Zambrano is a horse, so I'm hoping this is something minor.

He's been a bit off for about a month:

"When asked whether this injury was related to the stiff neck a month ago that the Sun-Times reported radiated into his shoulder, Zambrano said, ''Probably, yeah."

Wow. I've never had so many pitchers go bye bye from one team:

Pre-season injury: Kelvim Escobar
Sent down to the minors: Clay Buchholz
Major in-season injuries: Chris Young, Chien-Ming Wang
Possible serious injury: Carlos Zambrano

My 3 healthy pitchers: Ted Lilly, James Shields, Brett Myers.
Dominate is a verb. Dominant is an adjective.

really good to know that the cubs are continuing to take care of their pitchers... ;-D

I have bad luck when it comes to signatures that the person either gets traded or hurt...in this case I hope he gets traded.

Looks like he'll miss at least one start.

It does...for now. When his arm falls off, it's really gonna fall off.

Is it Rich Hill time???? I know he is still struggling some at Iowa, but the time is now. What about going out and getting Rich Harden?

I wouldn't expect Rich Hill to be with the major league club at all this season.
Sean Marshall has been doing a fine job at Triple-A Iowa, and Sean Gallagher is looking to be a good stop gap option until Zambrano returns, or a deal is made.

Look for Marshall to make Zambrano's Tuesday start next week.
