I think he's far from the CY days, and nowhere near worth that rediculous contract he was given. However I do believe he can still be a mid/low 4 ERA starter for the Giants once he works all the kinks out.

I believe he can hop on the luck train again and be marginally OK.

But then I believe in this too..................

What would happen if Zito and Andruw faced each other today? Who would win?

The short answer: "No."

Righetti himself said Zito is not the same Zito. His fastball is weak, like Ukraine.

7 years - $126 million

If he gets 5 wins a year, he will definitely hold the record for $/win....and $/loss.

I believe he can be a MLB pitcher. A good MLB pitcher, no.

The universe would explode from too much mediocrity.

Especially if the pollen was stirred up. :-S :-o

Wait, which one would be the pitcher and which the hitter?

I actually laughed out loud when I read this thread's title. And I'm at work.
