This is why I drafted you.
The wins haven't been there but Zito has been pitching very well since July 31st, after he was rocked in consecutive games vs. Seattle. Since this apparent wake up call Barry has begun to pitch as well as he has in the past, or at least close to that. For the month, his WHIP is on par with his last two years, as well as BAA and ERA . What is surprising and rewarding to owners who either kept or traded for (in some cases picked up!) is his 29K in 31 2/3 IP over the last 30 days. What is normal is giving up a maximum of 4 ER per game, since facing Seattle three weeks ago. Those four games where versus NYY, BOS, BAL and CHA(White Sox). Against weaker teams like TB and DET he has from great to quality starts, such as 7 IP 4 H 2 BB 0 ER 10 K 1 Win vs. Cle and 7.0 IP 5 H 3 ER 1 BB 5 K 1 W vs. DET. Zito's past performance strongly supports a shift to top quality stats as the playoffs near and he is coming through once again this year.
