3/1 Cactus League rotation

The Cubs have their Cactus League rotation set for the first five games. Randy Wells will get things started Thursday vs. the A’s, with Carlos Zambrano scheduled for Friday vs. the Diamondbacks. Carlos Silva will go Saturday vs. White Sox, and Jeff Samardzija and Tom Gorzelanny will both start Sunday in split squad games. Ryan Dempster goes Monday at Oakland. Sunday is the first of five scheduled split-squad games. Expect each starter to go at least two innings.

it would be awesome if samardzija comes out of the gate, sharp. i think he might be THE key to a good start of the season for the cubs if he can put it together. it’s time to realize all of that hype and potential.

I agree chitowncubbs, who would have thought Randy Wells would have leap frogged Samardzija and all his hype? But you are right, if Samardzija can finally produce, he along with Wells will give the Cubs two young pitchers that can help all year long and definatley make up for missing Lilly for the first month or so.
