Where's Zito going!?

10 posts in this topic

Always been a big A's fan and an even bigger Zito fan... It's terrible that the A's are already giving up on resigning him... Just wondering if anyone heard where he's likely to end up? I might boycott MLB if he ends up a Yankee... ;-/

I can't tip anything just yet, but I saw Kenny Williams ordering a new jersey with a name that started with a Z and I don't think the Cubs are trading Carlos Zambrano just yet.

It is rumoured he wants at least $80 million for four years. List of teams that want any of that action is pretty short.

Dump Buehrle and sign Zito. Sounds like a plan to me...Hey, it's not my money!

Wow! If that's true that is ludicrous. Zito is a good pitcher, but he is not in the elite status anymore I don't think. No pitcher is worth that, but if it has to be Santana or Halladay are about the only ones that should be able to command that type of money. I don't think he'll get quite that.

20 million a year. You get about 35 starts a year. That's 580,000 a start. Imagine if you or I go get 580K a day at work!

I'll agree with your "ludicrous" that's for sure.

Shoot, I can't get 580k for 365 days of work!

Shoulda taught my son to pitch!

I should have become a big league pitcher instead of a boilermaker.

Bad, bad, bad career choice on my part.

Consider for a moment that the Cubs routinely pay over ten million to not pitch at all. ooo.gif Man I'm tellin ya Zito is a steal. grin.gif

Not wishing this on him, but I'd bet if he signs with the Cubs he gets hurt.

I hadnt heard anything of the Cubbies lookin at him!? That'd wouldnt be the absolute worst thing I guess, I mean I could still watch him pitch a little because we get WGN down here in Sioux Falls and they cover alot of Cubs and ChiSox games... I still just really wish some miracle would happen that would keep him in Oakland!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.
