    Zito to San Fran

    According to ESPN's Peter Gammons, the Giants and Barry Zito have agreed to a seven-year deal worth about $18 million per year.

    $18 million per year for seven years would be $126 million, which is the same deal that Vernon Wells just got. Not that they should have gone this high, but Zito would have made a lot more sense on the Mets. The Giants still don't project to have a very good team this year, and the combination of having one of baseball's oldest teams and weakest farm systems suggests things are only going to get worse. The Giants could stay afloat in the post-Barry Bonds era by spending $100 million-$120 million per year, but they're probably not going to build another great team with Brian Sabean at the helm.

    Then they can force him to the DL and pull a "Bagwell".
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Is it me, or have most NL teams made what seem to be horrific decisions this offseason?

    There goes that second round draft pick from the Giants for Aurillia.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Yeah, super.

    Per usual, the Reds get nothing for a guy with inflated value.

    Do they now get the Giants third round pick?

    Why is that? I guess I missed the rule on this. Is it bc now the Giants give that pick to the A's?

    I don't know how it works, but it's just the constant syndrome of this team: hemorrhaging value.
