Lou Piniella named Carlos Zambrano as his starter for Friday night's game at Houston, while leaving the next two spots open.

Piniella said after Wednesday night's postponement in Pittsburgh that he would prefer to let Zambrano start Friday. Zambrano didn't warm up Wednesday night, playing catch instead as the team waited to find out whether the game would be played.

Carlos Silva and Ryan Dempster were scheduled to pitch Friday and Saturday. The two could be pushed back a day or Piniella may insert Ted Lilly in Sunday's spot to avoid pitching him against the Pirates again in Monday's make-up game.

Zambrano throws a mirror image of Armando Galarraga's game. Except this should be perfect game is broken up by a line drive that drops about 16 inches foul but the umpire calls it fair.

The Cubs and Zambrano are livid following the play and the end of the game. The entire team is on the field voicing their displeasure with this particular umpire.

Ted Lilly calmly strolls into the umpires locker room... and waits patiently...

After seeing how Galarraga took the situation, I started thinking of what it would have been like had it happened to Z. They would probably still be sponging up the bloody remains of Jim Joyce as we speak.
