It's Official: The Cheese has Slid off Lou's Cracker

Ladies and Gentlemen what you are witnessing is a man that has officially lost his damn mind, moving the ace(and yes based on career numbers he is the ace) of the staff out of the starting rotation and putting him in a lesser role as a setup man. How about Andrew Cashner, previously mentioned Braden Looper, or Silva?

One must ask if this is Lou trying to intentionally get fired, how can you expect to progress by weakening your starting rotation? Another point that's not being made is the already volatile nature of Zambrano and the lingering effects that leaving him in the bullpen will bring on. Or how about the fact that historically Zambrano's worst inning tends to be the first, what could we expect when he's brought in cold in the eigth? I'm sorry but this has disaster written all over it.

Now on to Tyler Colvin. Does the Cubs organization view him as an asset? The reason I'm asking is because of the way Piniella is allowed to handle this young man. He's playing sparingly and when he get's a start it's against Oliver Perez who is death on left handed hitters. I was an advocate for Castro being the starting shortstop but seeing as how Lou has checked out mentally I can wait until Sandberg is the new manager in 2011.
