Big Z To Start Friday In Houston

Carlos Zambrano has had to wait since April 20 for his next start; he was supposed to go in last night’s rained-out game in Pittsburgh.

The Cubs have announced that Z will start Friday’s game; originally that would have been Carlos Silva’s turn.

According to the cubs.com probable pitchers page, Silva will now go on Saturday and Ryan Dempster on Sunday. But stay tuned. The Daily Herald’s Bruce Miles says Lou is on a fishing expedition in the Gulf of Mexico today. Maybe he’ll reel in another starting pitcher.
