SF Giants Rumors: Japanese Pitcher Linked To Giants, Barry Zito Thanks Fans

Barry Zito Thanks San Francisco Giants Fans. Joel Sherman of the New York Post says Masahiro Tanaka will be coveted by some Major League Baseball teams. Yes, that means your San Francisco Giants are expected to be one of the teams involved per Sherman. The 24-year-old is considered a free agent, which means signing Tanaka will not command a draft pick.   If you haven’t heard...

Barry Zito thanks Giants fans in full-page newspaper ad

Barry Zito and Giants fans have long been resigned to the fact that he isn’t going to be returning to the team next season. It’s been seven years of some good and a lot more bad. Now Zito’s about to hit free agency. And after last year’s debacle of a season, now is as good as time as any to make a clean break. Have both sides start anew. So before the offseason officially...

Ski shop jabs SF Giants with sign

This supposedly comes from a ski shop in Sacramento. To be fair, I’m pretty sure I saw Barry Zito out there playing and decidedly not taking the summer off. He’s just terrible. As of writing, in case you needed the nausea-inducing reminder, your defending champion Giants are 66-80, in last place and 20 games out of first place. The offseason is near, Giants fans. Just a little...

Barry Zito Public Enemy No. 75

The roller coaster ride known as Barry Zito has reached the top of its last peak, and we’re on the final descent in San Francisco. Zito had been sent to the bullpen prior to the Rays Series this past weekend in Florida.   Bruce Bochy made the announcement mid-week that Zito would not be making his scheduled start against the Rays on Sunday.  Zito essentially will finish...

In advance of Metallica Night at AT&T Park, Barry Zito jammed with the band (video)

On Friday, May 3, the San Francisco Giants will pay tribute to some of the great city’s favorite sons, Metallica, with a tribute night at AT&T Park. While Metallica technically was formed in Los Angeles in 1981, the band relocated to San Francisco Bay Area early on at the request of bassist Cliff Burton (the more you know). As part of the buildup to the festivities, Giants...

Barry Zito, this post is for you

It’s been a while since I’ve heard the name “Barry” being echoed throughout AT&T Park, but with the recent success of longtime Giant scapegoat Barry Zito, it’s the least the fans can do. Zito is the Giants’ best pitcher right now. He has yet to surrender a run – an accomplishment even Sergio Romo was unable to hold. Looking back at the first day Zito became a...

Barry Zito selling Bay Area mansion for $11.45 million (PICS)

San Francisco Giants pitcher Barry Zito has it all – a beautiful wife, a claim to a World Series ring, childbearing hips (whether he likes them or not) and a ridiculous house that he’s trying to get rid of. The home is so prestigious that it has a name – Villa Della Place.  The main and guest houses have a kitchen, a handful of bathrooms and bedrooms (go figure).  But the...

Barry Zito and social media create magic

Barry Zito, the man most associated with bad baseball contracts, just pitched seven and two-thirds shutout innings against the best hitting team in the National League to send the National League Championship Series back to San Francisco. The Giants, dodged behind a 1-3 series disadvantage, avoided an elimination in St. Louis and lived to play another day. Zito averaged around 84...

Barry Zito fulfills prophecy, extends Giants season

Wow what a game. Barry Zito came up huge, winning a must win game to extend the Giants season at least one more day. Going 7.2 innings with just one intentional walk it was about as great as you could have asked. And in a way I did ask for it. A few weeks ago I had a weird premonition that Zito would be a hero after it came out he would be in the postseason rotation. ...
