We've said it all season. If you score four runs for Barry Zito, he will get you a win.
That is unless, of course, he gives up 8. Actually, Zito pitched well on Tuesday. But I can't get over the fact that he's throwing 86 mph fastballs (tops). It's like we signed Jamie Moyer to the richest contract in baseball for a pitcher. Or Woody.
Regardless, it was good to see the Giants win a game. They need to find a way to get Fred Lewis into the lineup. And I realize that's the 100th time I've said that. His swipe of second in the eighth was a pretty big play and his mere presence brings excitement into the game.
It's tradin' time.
