LeBlanc optioned to AAA

Not overly surprised with this move. Even tho I questioned it because of his Spring, I thought at the start of ST this is where he would end up for the "just in case" mode. "Go to AAA, get your work in on a regular schedule, and stay ready." Gaudin has had a pretty good ST and if that translates over to the regular season then all is fine. If he faulters in the long relief role then there is always Plan B. Even tho LeBlanc probably isn't the happiest person in the world right now, the pluses out number the minuses for the team with this move.

If LeBlanc is the fallback in case "something happens" to one of the starters I'm hoping that means they won't wait too long to call him up if Zambrano can't hold his own. I really don't expect much from Big Z but I suppose he'll be given a month or two to prove himself.


On the other hand I am actually fairly confident Zambrano can post together a good year. I can see 12 wins and an ERA in the 3.50 region
