Given his successes on the mound for both the Oakland A's and San Francisco Giants, you'd expect Californians to know who Barry Zito is, right?

Well, after listening to Good Day L.A. host Steve Edwards introduce the former Cy Young Award winner before a recent show appearance...your expectations would be on point.

Then, naturally, the pitcher showed up and, well...the longtime host forgot everything he said three minutes prior when he insinuated that he knew practically everything there is to know Barry Zito. Then, when the host began asking the musician, Kelley James, the baseball questions, Zito just sat there.

The fun begins at about the three-minute mark.
