Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News says Barry Zito had a closed-door meeting with manager Bruce Bochy. No, they weren’t talking about the night life in Arizona. They were discussing the article by Bruce Jenkins saying Zito’s spot in the rotation isn’t safe.
“Bochy called me in, first thing,” Zito said. “He just said, This is the first we’ve heard of this.”
Zito plans to be part of the Giants rotation, and doesn’t want to be traded or released.
This Zito topic has seemed to peak a lot of fans interest. Some fans via @SFGiants_Rumors twitter and SF Giants Rumors Facebook have mixed reactions as to release or keep him. The majority however seem to be willing to tell Zito to kick rocks.
Let’s take a step back and look at it like this. If we had no clue as to what these players made a year. We would all agree that Zito as a number 5 starter isn’t a bad choice.
Now back to reality… We all know that Zito’s contract is worth $126 million. Which means he’s not living up to his contract, and that’s why fans are ready to clean out his locker at AT&T Park.
