so is it fun and never frustrating to be a Zito owner? Ive never been a Zito owner, but I want to, might trade for him.


However, I just trade Barry Zito and Kerry Wood for Johan Santana, so once the trade goes through, I will no longer be a Zito owner. :-t But I will be a Santana owner. ;-D

The Rockies have quite a few guys who aren't good hitters in there and w/ out Holliday it isn't the best line up. He still will have those great starts thrown in, but his control still needs to be worked on.


His control obviously still needs work, but from watching him these past 2 starts compared to earlier in the season the improvement is definitely evident. His fastball is moving a bit more and he's been able to spot it better to set up his breaking pitches (which are dirty). His stuff is just through the roof, if he can get his control problems down and put it together he will be a legit ace in this league for a long time.

Apparantly he thinks Wood and Zito can be more valuable than Santana, (of course Wood needs to stay healthy first). He also is in last place so he is trying to get out of the basement. He noticed that Wood and Zito have good WHIP's and that With Zito's ERA and Wood's K's, they could equal Santana with more wins. That is basically what he told me, and I was like "alright."

Thanks for the input man! ;-D


Lets hope he gets that control down so he can do wonders for fantasy teams and for the Giants.

I dunno. All I have to say is that with the recent implosions of Maddux and Rogers, I now have to consider starting Cain in a couple of leagues as my 6th SP. Not happy about it at all.

I got off the Cain Train a couple weeks ago and I'm not getting back on until I see a few QS in a row.

It's funny how everyone raves about Ollie Perez when he has one decent outing but disses Cain. Makes no sense to me.
