Would you pinch hit for Rowand or Molina against a tough right-handed closer? No. Sometimes this lefty-lefty stuff is a little bit overblown. Giants baseball: where pinch-hitting for your best player with 2 outs in the 9th happens!
New Barry Zito Idea: I think Giants fans should give Zito unflinching support for the next 5 years, start pro-Zito websites, encourage him even when he's pitching terrible, refuse to boo, write encouraging fan mail, loudly cheer whenever his name is announced, anything to show that we support him and to make sure he knows the fans support him. Why? Because a) he didn't sign himself to a 7 (potentially 8) year contract worth way too much money b) he's going to be a Giants for the next 6 years basically no matter what and booing him and c) complaining about it does nothing to change the contract or the way he pitches. Cheering him probably won't either, but it certainly has more of a chance of helping than booing him does.
