2. Volstad was not acquired to be a long shot, he was acquired to be filler for the back of the rotation with the added benefit of not being a huge distraction. To read into it more than that would be silly.

At any rate, if Zambrano's peripherals from last year demonstrate his new level, I'd rather have three years of Volstad than one more year of the cancerous Zambrano.
Even if the plan is just to hang on to Volstad for a year or two, he could become a nice trading chip for the Cubs down the line and bring in a solid prospect. We all agree that wasn't going to happen with Zambrano, who teams knew couldn't exist in Chicago.
