Well that is how i found this article; i was doing a cafe search for any analysis of Zink, and i stumbled upon this article.
On a side note i am rooting for Zink tonight. He turns 29 at the end of the month, was an undrafted free agent, spent time in an independent league, and has been basically been the guy used to train Wakefield's catchers since 2002. Hoyt Wilhelm turned 30 during his rookie year, so i guess there is hope, but i am not holding my breath. I would not be shocked that if Zink is good while for the next couple of weeks, he stays and Buchholz goes to triple a when Wakefield returns.
