They’re Barry satisfied
After spending the winter with small-bore deals for guys like Dave Roberts and Bengie Molina, the team showed they still understand the value of securing a marquee player, one who will be around long after Barry Bonds’ bones and organs have dissolved into peach jam from his long-time steroid abuse.
Now the only problem the team has is Zito’s ability, or lack of ability, to swing the bat. Not only do pitchers never bat in the American League, Zito is particularly known as one of the worst batting pitchers alive today. The words “horrible,” “ridiculous” and “pathetic” were used in the space of just a few minutes on KNBR today. I hope somebody will teach him how to bunt.
And the only other problem is that, at least for this season, everyone will have to specify which “Barry” they’re talking about.
