Apparently Piniella changed his mind from Tuesday and changed his rotation again. The Sox will now miss Zambrano apparently.

Vazquez @ Wrigley doesn't give me confidence, but we'll see.

Ah, we'll see. Mark has looked better lately.

Not at all. Buehrle is tied for the staff lead in quality starts.

Cubs typically hit lefties hard, however.

Dang I was really hoping to see Gavin buckling some Cubs hitters with that nasty curve. Strange how I WANT Gavin on the mound nowadays, how quickly things change :cool:.

In between:

Buehrle-Kuroda
Floyd-Lowe
Danks-Penny

They play other teams too.

We should be able to win 2 out of 3 at wrigley

I like facing Marquis twice but not Dempster. Lilly gives us fits and Z is a wildcard at Soxpark. Could be worse.

I'm glad I don't have to put up with seeing Z live on the 27th. :bandance:

I'm happy to say that I sold all 3 games at a profit! I will watch them from a bar and talk about how overrated these series are. :gulp:

Mark's ERA is actually respectable after his past few starts. Give me a ****ing break with your crap.

We better pound the living daylights out of Marquis and Lilly.Now that our offense is still in a slump, I'm predicting that they should be at peak performance after the Colorado series. I'm ready for another long winning streak.

I am not worried about Mark. I am worried about Z. Can we hit off him? Even during our looong hitting streaks?

After COL is PIT. Then, we play the Cubs. Then, we go to LAD. After that, we play CHC again.

Me too! I WANT to see Jose, Danks, and Floyd. Mark/Javy I will NEVER question. Well, not for a loong while.

We face him at home so yes we can hit him. You're forgetting that our park is a launching pad. We have a staff built around pitchers who keep the ball in the park for that reason. A hard throwing starter like Zambrano is the type of pitchers our offense can feast off of. It's the off speed guys and junk ballers you have to worry about.

Z could bat at least 7th on the Sox.

Have to upset him, get into his head, possibly a brush back pitch,( NOT A BEAN BALL) , when he's batting.

With all the flip-flopping and with Z going down, does anyone know if there will be any changes/updates with these predicted matchups?

It won't impact the series at Wrigley - and until the results from the tests come back, we won't know about the scheduled rotations at USCF.
