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!

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
