This is going to be the rotation for the Cubs this year:
1. Ryan Dempster
2. Carlos Zambrano
3. Matt Garza
4. Carlos Silva
5. Jeff Samardzija
I think it could be a toss up between Andrew Cashner and Jeff. Although Randy Wells will be a strong candidate, his inconsistincies may strike against him.
Jeff will be training hard and I think this will be his year to shine. He was sent down last year and went 11-3. That’s pretty decent numbers. He won’t let the team down.
Of course, the list is in no particular order. I’ve said before that Dempster will be the Opening Day pitcher, but then again Matt Garza might be the pick because he’s the Cubs stallion right now. Which I still hope Ryan starts. He deserves it.
