Oh, Barry

Barry Zito and the Giants are off to a wonderful start. I stated earlier that I thought Zito wouldn’t get past five and one of the readers said that was generous. Maybe it was.

Anyway, he was down 3-0 by the time he recorded his second out. A leadoff double by Rafael Furcal that was barely fair (a bad break), a single by Matt Kemp that scored Furcal. An awful throw by new center fielder Aaron Rowand that allowed Kemp to go to second. And then a long home run by Giants fan favorite Jeff Kent.

This team is not good.


  • Well, that’s probably why I’m not the sports writer. 5 innings were met for the exact opposite reason that I thought he’d go 3. The defense helped him. Amazing.
