I just wanted to give kudos to Lou Piniella for his strategy with Zambrano this season.
A few days ago, I read in the paper that Lou said he expects to start Zambrano every fifth day, even if there's an off-day in between, meaning that Zambrano will get six starts in April. This means, to my reading, anyway, that Piniella will skip the fifth starter when he has a chance and give Zambrano the start throughout the season.
Hopefully, this means Zambrano can get 34 or 35 starts, instead of 32 or 33. To me, it makes all the sense in the world to go with your best starter as often as possible, at least if you're trying to win. (It also makes sense from the standpoint of a fan - I for one would rather see Zambrano start a game I've paid $40 to watch than Wade Miller).
I understand that you need to keep your fifth starter in the mix, and not let them languish when there's an off day, but there's no reason at all why that pitcher can't go to the bullpen on those occasions.
