I was wondering if Zito was going to go silently into the off season and do his workout routine with Wilson and put a bad season behind him. Nope he had to call Gary Radnich on KNBR and bitch and moan about how fans and media picked on him this year and how much he loves himself.
Zito calls Radnich 5 minutes after the stock market dropped about 700 points when the House rejected the bailout bill. It was about a 25 min interview off the cuff with Radnich handling himself like the pro he is. I almost gagged on my breakfast 3 or 4 times durring the interview on how moronic Zito came off. Zito came off like a guy trying for the part of Jeff Spicoli in Fast Times at Ridgemont High 2.
Zito just does'nt get it that the fans and media don't think he is evil (his words). He has to realize he cost MaGowan his job and is sucking up like 1/5 of the payroll with his awful two years with the Giants. Fans want a winner and he has let them down. He talked about how he is like Lincecum 7 years ago (Huh!). He blames the baseball structure for his contract and how he earned his 126 mill from the times he spent with the A's. When do the Giants get their return?
Zito has now put a 1000 pound monkey on his back for next year since he says he has righted his ship. What happens next year if he starts 0-4 or 2-6? That monkey just gets bigger every time he opens his mouth. Whoever is giving this guy advice on handling his situation might be dumber than Zito.
I advise Giants fans to check out this interview on KNBR.com and laugh,shake your head and wonder why Zito just does'nt get it.
