Are the Giants Too Lefty-Heavy?

In the top of the fifth of what became an extra-inning win last Friday night, the Giants were ahead a run. Barry Zito was 100 pitches in and had been lucky to escape the top of the fifth with one run after he allowed two singles, a walk and a home run.

Another week has passed in the MLB and one of the most amazing Quality Start No Decision performances ever from a pitcher... errr...
