Yeah, you're right. It was more of a pipedream than anything...but I realize Beane had monetary concerns in mind too. Too bad he couldn't screw someone with Zito. Maybe he was hoping for a hot-start so he could trade before the deadline. :-?

there many reasons he kept zito over hudson

zito is locked up for 2 more years
hudson just this one

hudson makes 7million
zito made just around 1million last season (he is the bargain)

and if he wanted to keep zito long term he could at a cheaper price based on last years and so far this year's performance

remeber zito is still VERY Valuable in REAL baseball (if he isnt in fantasy baseball lately)

he entering that world of guys like mike Hampton (ewwwwwww, who are very valuable in real life)

i can't believe i just compared zito to mike hampton (i think zito is better then him, u have to agree with that lol)

Just wondering, what makes him more valuable in real baseball?

he pitches alot of innings with an above league average ERA.

Joe Morgan would define that as an "innings eater"
