Where's Zito going!?

Recommended Posts

Moses2531

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!

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
