Should everyone just assume that this guy is damaged goods to this point? He didn't take his MRI yesterday. Possibly he is fearing the worst. In my money league, we do not have a bench. So I am stuck with this guy on my active roster until they release something or until he attempts to pitch through the pain .. in which case it counts against me. How is everyone handling Z right now? I am kind of torn because his velocity looked good, but it is September and I'm making my push and need the production.

Word from local radio in Chi-town is that he had family matters to attend to so the MRI is pushed back until today...stay tuned.

Anyone else in a league like mine where there are no reserves? How are you treating him down the stretch? I know I could use some ERA and WHIP relief and cannot afford to lose ground in any of the other pitching categories. Anyone actually cut him loose?

Zambrano is probably one of the reasons you need some ERA and WHIP help.
If I had him, I'd think about it; especially if I was in a close race for first.
