Bullet Dodges the Mariners - Zito signs with the Giants

New, comments

In Jeff's absence I figured the LL scrubs (just think of me as the LL Willie wannabe) should acknowledge this bit of Mariners good fortune: Zito to Giants.  ESPN says 7 years, $18 million average, with an option for the 8th year at another $18 million.  (As if whoever is holding the contract after the 2013 season is actually going to exercise that option.)

If you are a Mariners fan the only thing that would have been better is for an addled AL West rival to have saddled themselves with that contract.

Oh, and since the Giants are in the NL West, I guess this benefits our hated and despised interleague rivals the - uhhhh uhhh, oh yeah - the Padres.
