Be realistic for a moment: what should the Giants do with Zito? He got killed again today: lots of walks, lots of hits, 5 runs in 2 innings. He isn't just bad any more. He isn't just really bad. He's the worst pitcher in all of baseball. What should the Giants do?
I tend to think they should send him down to AAA, but what do I know?
Here's what I do know: the Giants are actually a reasonably interesting, reasonably likable, reasonably competititve team. Without Zito, they might actually have a decent shot at getting to .500.
I like Sabean, too. Whenever you hear the guy on KNBR he always seems like a kind and decent human being. But on the same day I sent Zito down, I'd fire Sabean. You just can't sign a contract like that to Barry Zito and keep your job. No way.
