Right On Time

Note: Don’t understand why Barry Zito has a chauffeur in a tank?  It’s a reference to the old days of the Lunatic Fringe, when we were in black and white and all! Okay, it wasn’t the best series ever.  But I’ll take two wins out of three in Los Angeles every time. Sure, Vogelsong looked like he had problems keeping his velocity up after a few innings.  Cain still is giving...

Oakland Athletics: Paging Barry Zito

Suddenly, the Oakland Athletics starting rotation is looking incredibly dicey. A.J. Griffin has been shutdown for three weeks as he deals with an “ailing right elbow.” Jarrod Parker’s entire 2014 season has been wiped out, as the right-hander will require Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career. Even Scott Kazmir is struggling with triceps tightness, although it’s...

Veteran left-hander Barry Zito is taking a break; he isn't retiring

Barry Zito plans to take some time off, but he isn't retiring. Curiously, almost nothing was written about Zito this winter, and the reason for that is there's no evidence he actively sought a job. Just the same, Zito isn't ready to call it quits, either, according to people in the know. There was an early suggestion in a story about Zito taking time off to surf by...

Barry Zito is taking time off but is not retiring?

Barry Zito plans to take some time off according to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman. That is not meant to be read as retiring. Zito, 35, is not planning to pitch this season after posting a 5.74 ERA across 133 1/3 innings of work last season for the San Francisco Giants. While older players have come back it’s hard to imagine that Zito will be better off in a year. The Giants declined...

Barry Zito thanks Giants fans in full-page newspaper ad

Barry Zito and Giants fans have long been resigned to the fact that he isn’t going to be returning to the team next season. It’s been seven years of some good and a lot more bad. Now Zito’s about to hit free agency. And after last year’s debacle of a season, now is as good as time as any to make a clean break. Have both sides start anew. So before the offseason officially...

Ski shop jabs SF Giants with sign

This supposedly comes from a ski shop in Sacramento. To be fair, I’m pretty sure I saw Barry Zito out there playing and decidedly not taking the summer off. He’s just terrible. As of writing, in case you needed the nausea-inducing reminder, your defending champion Giants are 66-80, in last place and 20 games out of first place. The offseason is near, Giants fans. Just a little...

Barry Zito Public Enemy No. 75

The roller coaster ride known as Barry Zito has reached the top of its last peak, and we’re on the final descent in San Francisco. Zito had been sent to the bullpen prior to the Rays Series this past weekend in Florida.   Bruce Bochy made the announcement mid-week that Zito would not be making his scheduled start against the Rays on Sunday.  Zito essentially will finish...

Barry Zito, this post is for you

It’s been a while since I’ve heard the name “Barry” being echoed throughout AT&T Park, but with the recent success of longtime Giant scapegoat Barry Zito, it’s the least the fans can do. Zito is the Giants’ best pitcher right now. He has yet to surrender a run – an accomplishment even Sergio Romo was unable to hold. Looking back at the first day Zito became a...

Barry Zito selling Bay Area mansion for $11.45 million (PICS)

San Francisco Giants pitcher Barry Zito has it all – a beautiful wife, a claim to a World Series ring, childbearing hips (whether he likes them or not) and a ridiculous house that he’s trying to get rid of. The home is so prestigious that it has a name – Villa Della Place.  The main and guest houses have a kitchen, a handful of bathrooms and bedrooms (go figure).  But the...
