The 'tinker' Piniella always uncertainty

Piniella hinting of changing his rotation again

Stating he might move Hill up to his normal 4-day rest and pitch him tomorrow and then Zambrano on his normal 4-day rest Friday in Cincinnati....insinuating that he could skip Lilly's start on Sunday to hold him to start on Wednesday provided they make the playoffs.

This means someone else might start on Saturday (Trachsel, Marshall, Hart or Gallagher) if the Cubs have clinched it by then or they still have Lilly in the hole for Sunday.

I think Lou is doing two things, he is telling his club that they are going to win it and he is willing to go and win it now, Marquis, Hill, Zambrano....win three right now and see what the Brewers can do.

This would line up Lilly for Wednesday and Zambrano for Thursday in the playoffs, Hill for Saturday and then have Lilly on 3 days rest for Sunday (if necessary) and Zambrano for Tuesday (if necessary)....
