Yeah hes a good ace, and hes underrated this year. Should get you good rats, Ws, and a decent amount of Ks, 180-200. To be honest, a bit underrated in some drafts too.

I would rank him lower in the top 10 in a keeper draft and he should get close if not 200 k's.

yeah i see him having a lot of favorable matchups seeing as hes the #3 in the cubs rotation while the #3 on most teams is no where near that good
so i think he should get 15+ wins

hes underated cause of Prior & Wood, hes already surpasses Wood , Priors next, he has the best stuff on thats staff

he was on a team like Washington or Tampa Bay, hed be higher like Ol Perez & Sheets , cause those teams have no one else, they are magnified

C - Zam a very solid option

Zambrano doesn't get the respect he deserves... But to make statements like that?

Yeah, in a keeper I'd say he's top 10. I've got him lower in my rankings than most other guys have him ranked for this year--I know he can help out in 4 categories, but I don't think his WHIP will be as low as '04.

But in a keeper league, yeah, I'd say hold onto the guy like he's gold.

I've heard that he has the best stuff, but I'm reluctant to say ahead of Prior. Prior is very good.

He is clearly better than Kerry Wood (the most over-rated pitcher I have ever seen) Kerry Wood has never won more than 14 games in a season..........how is he ahead of Prior, Zambrano, and Maddux?

And, when Prior pitches a full season without missing time because of some little injury or his Dad, I'll start to consider him great. But until then, he's just another over-hyped cub.

Zambrano is the ace of that staff, followed by Maddux, Prior, then Wood.

(cubs are on track for another 3rd place finish) woo woo
