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!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
