Shed no tears over Big-Z

With the diagnosis today of Carlos Zambrano having a minor strain of the shoulder, Cubs fans can breathe a sigh of relief. No torn labrums, no Tommy John, no rotator cuff…probably just some rest and some strength building exercises for Big Z.

Here is a comment from read Gregg, followed by my reply:

From Gregg:

I’m relieved the Cubs are out of Tampa Bay. What a mess that turned out to be. While the pitching seemed decent enough on this trip (save for last nights game), it was the lack of timely hitting that bothered me most. It’ll be interesting to see the results of Zambrano’s MRI. The way he was removed from the game the other night, and the fact that he’s missing a start worries me a little. Actually not a little, but a LOT! It seems we’ve been down this path before with Wood & Prior, and that this MRI is going to reveal some slight tear that’s going to shelve him indefinitely.

Reply from Clark Addison:

Well, this Cubs team is different than any in my memory. They are not dependent on a single player (or pitcher) as they truly are a team that seems to have a mix of contributors making it all happen. I agree that recent Cub teams were really counting on Wood & Prior and basically collapsed when they got injured. But this team feels different to me. When Soriano went down the first time and now again, it really hasn’t been such a huge loss. Same can be said for Hill going down to AAA and Marquis & Lilly starting off slowly the team still manages to have the best record in baseball! Maybe this is Our Year??
