Actually I see Dodger written all over him.
I've read that he's from LA and loves being on the west coast. As long as LA comes even close to what he wants (which I fully expect them to anyway) I think he signs with them.
I happen to like Zito so the thought of him being a Yankee repulses me. Zito's a laidback, free-spirit type whom I don't think would thrive in NY. They took the wild-haired, goateed (albeit drug-ingesting) Jason Giambi I liked and turned him into the clean-cut Yankee he is now. It'd be a shame to see that happen to Zito, personally.
Don't count out the Padres either. The Pads have plenty of money coming off the books this offseason and I imagine they would love to add Zito to Peavy and Young in the rotation. They will definitely be looking some offense, but I think they will be in the running for Zito as well. I don't think they will pay New York money, but if Zito gives them a home team discount, it would not suprise me to see him sign in Wr's land.
