Originally posted by Frisco69ers:I dont know about you guys, but I am starting to think we should resign Zito at the end of the year for a 1-2 yr deal. He has been playing above average and we need vet starters next season while the young guys are working their way up. (Im thinking this might have to be a must if Vogey retires, and we lose Timmy).
Have you looked at his splits? He is great at home (in a huge ballpark) and terrible on the road. Ghost and I chuckled about it the other day. If he came back and low low money, sure...but I dont see it happening. I would rather us invest time into a young pitcher who can be around for a while. Zito is playing way better than previous years, but he still has to rely on almost perfect command in order to get outs. That is just too much to ask from a pitcher. If he makes a mistake, he gets shelled. And he is getting older, which will not help.
