Big Z to bullpen

Postby mtxdevil » Wed Apr 21, 2010 4:45 pm

rotoworld -

Carlos Zamabrano will be shifted to the Cubs' bullpen on Friday.
Shocking, but not a terrible baseball move. Big Z has struggled to keep runners off base in his first three starts of the season and the Cubs' bullpen has been awful in Angel Guzman's absence. Zambrano's stuff, still nasty, should translate well into a setup role. That said, his fantasy value just plummeted through the floor and he will be of little use in non-holds leagues. Carlos Silva will hang onto a rotation spot until his inevitable collapse.

Wow. Absolutely shocking. I think he's terribly overrated, but he definitely deserves a rotation spot given the other options the Cubs have (Carlos Silva). Simply wow.

Everything with Zambrano is comical. This tops the list though. :-b

WOW.

I don't know what else to say to that. Opening day starter to bullpen guy, in favor of Carlos Silva, in a little over two weeks. Just, wow.

So, is Silva worth a pickup for dropping Z?

Haha from opening day starter to the 'pen. I wonder how many gatorade jugs were destroyed when the news broke.

I would rather have an empty roster spot on my fantasy team than start Carlos Silva.
