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.

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!

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
