Carlos Zambrano is returning to the rotation

Aug 4, 2010, 1:20 PM EDT

Paul Sullivan reports that the Cubs are putting Carlos Zambrano back into the rotation. He’ll get the start against the Giants on Monday.

This makes perfect sense. If the Cubs think they can trade Zambrano — maybe a crazy thought, but one they’ve been having — the only possible hope they have to do so hinges on Zambrano showing that he can be an effective starter. Yeah, his contract is nuts no matter what he does, but it’s less nuts if he can pitch seven effective innings every fifth day than it would be if he was a long man.

    This guy’s nuttier than Mel Gibson on Mezcal. No one will take him without Chicago stuffing millions into their bank accounts.

    Since when does being nutty stop one from pitching?

    Never. But it’s kept people from getting paid to do it.
