So, I'm listening to the Twins game, and the announcers are having a grand 'ole time discussing how much the Cubs suck. Did they really just move Carlos Zambrano to the setup role? yes they did. Come on Cubs management, you're better than that. I see absolutely no rationale behind this move. Lets trade 7 innings of great pitching for one. Sound good? Its not like they've got a logjam of future cy young winners in the rotation either. It'd be like us benching petey for the rest of the season under the rationale that one at bat per game would be more successful than four. Why? The cubs are terrible. Their games aren't won in the 7th and 8th innings; most likely they won't even be competitive if there's no solid starter to hold them in the game while that offense gets going
