There is a joke somewhere in this, but it is true as well, Zambrano to the bullpen.

The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting (via Twitter) that Carlos Zambrano will be moved to the bullpen starting Friday.

Since Lilly is expected to be activated for the weekend, that pretty much means that Jeff Samardzija will be sent to Iowa to learn how to throw the ball over the plate...or at least within 2 feet of the plate.

We were warned about we all knew something might be up.

But, wow.

We now have an $18 million setup man.

This team is becoming a punch-line.

Now we've heard stuff like this before and 24 hours later, Piniella changed his mind, so this isn't a done deal yet...but it seems to make some bit of sense.
