cards fan here. how in the hell could we lose to glendon rusch?
but to the point, yes, i think zambrano and clement will continue to be good pitchers throughout the year. they wont be as highly ranked as they are now but they should be solid. if you get them you will get a mess of strikeouts. i am expecting something similar to clements 2002 line (3.60 era, 1.20 whip, 215k). i keep thinking sooner or later the league will catch up to zambrano but they never do. a similar line can be expected for zambrano although he will probably be in the 170k range.
for the original poster, i would be somewhat concerned about the lack of a more dependable schilling type #1 starter (depending on the size of your league). although i am optimistic about the cubs pitchers, i wouldnt be comfortable with clement as my number 1 in a 12 team league.
