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.

SF Giants Rumors: Hunter Pence Wants To Stay In San Francisco Long Term

Outfielder Hunter Pence is looking to rebound in 2013, says John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Barry Zito Trolls Manti Te’o With A Song On The Adam Carolla Show (video)

Today everyone is having a laugh.  Yesterday on the Adam Corolla Show, San Francisco...

Player Profile #129: Tim Lincecum | SP | SF

A dominant playoff performance out of San Francisco’s bullpen en route to a World Championship might have saved Tim Linceum‘s fantasy value. Still, that one month doesn’t forgive the other six in which Lincecum tortured fantasy owners. For the third straight year his walk rate rose, and for the second straight year his ground ball rate declined. Lincecum’s 14.0% HR/FB rate...

Giants, Posey not rushing new deal

Good luck to the San Francisco Giants trying to figure out what catcher Buster Posey is worth long term. It's not a stretch to imagine Posey replacing Derek Jeter as the game's standard-bearer. Heck, the 25-year-old Posey already is more accomplished than Jeter at a comparable stage of his career, despite appearing in only 308 regular-season games. Both players won Rookie...
