What are you doing with Zito?

Postby ja515y » Thu Apr 21, 2005 6:30 pm

Is there any reason I should keep him on my team? I just wanted to get a feel for what other Zito owners ( if there are any) are doing with him after his last start. There are other options on my FA list. Not great ones but better than what Zito is getting me.
I just don't want to drop him and than all of a sudden he remembers how to pitch again.

SELL, SELL, SELL, SELL!

Zito will never be as good as he was 3 years ago. Ever. I'd be surprised if he can keep his ERA under 4.50 this year...

I dropped him in the only league I drafted him in. He's droppable in most 10-12 team leagues IMO.

I traded for him in a 14 team league. I agree that he'll return to his old form.

wow! answers are from pretty far opposite ends of the spectrum. Can anyone else shed some light on this. This guy seems like he could be a total bust, or a cy young canidate.

my thought is that you won't get anything of value for him right now so you might as well hope he gets it together.

If you have him, hold him and bench him. If you don't, don't bother going after him.

Exactly. I'm hanging on to him but he's not getting back into my lineup until he gets a few good starts. The rest of my starting pitching is strong so there's really no reason for me to replace Zito right now anyway.
