Baker said Zambrano will be followed by Greg Maddux and Ryan Dempster in the first series.
There goes the theory that Rusch will be judged on last season's performance and not a handful of spring tosses.

But then again, it's not exactly like Dempster's been lights-out this March: 10 innings, 18 hits, 6 walks, 10.80 ERA.

Is there a chain reaction? Does Rusch become the second lefty? Is Stephen Randolph left off the 25-man? Will Alex eat his shorts if Dempster keeps getting slotted in every fifth day?
