Zito to the DL…Giants thrilled
Barry Zito has finally done something that the San Francisco Giants are happy about. Specifically, he has landed on the disable list with a mid-foot sprain. Amazingly, it’s his first trip to the DL in 12 years.
The Giants were probably hoping he’d spend more time there. The left-hander probably is the worst free agent signing in the history of professional sports. Remember the team was rumored during spring training to be considering cutting the guy they gave a seven-year, $126 million contract to. At the time it was the most money ever given to a pitcher.

Zito is 0-1 so far this season with a 6.23 ERA. He’s walked eight and struck out just six. This guy is just not very good anymore.
At least with him on the disabled list, the Giants coaches, staff, front office officials, players, stadium workers and fans won’t have to watch him pitch.
