In the face of a loss yesterday why is Barry Zito starting? Is it because the administration feels it is politically correct to do regardless what the fans think? If we were to take a vote it would be unanimous not to start Zito., yet he is definitely starting. This tells me that the owners are not committed to winning this season. We will lose the game today.
The only starting pitchers on the Giant staff who are reliable are Ryan Vogelsong and Madison Bumgarner. You cannot win a division title with just two solid starters, unless you have an outstanding bull pen which we do not have. I thought we would have three strong starters, but Matt Cain has proven that he is only a .500 pitcher and may win three more games this season. What a pity! Mr. perfect has become very imperfect. I say have a house cleaning and get rid of Lincecum, Cain and Zito. Keep Melkey Cabrera and dump Hunter Pence. He has the wrong batting coach. They need his bat to win consistently, but when he does start producing it may be too late. Do you think the Giant administrators care? No!

Have you ever heard of a starting pitcher rotation? That's why dummy.
You should also know that in the dog days of August, you don't want to skip starters and get the rest of the rotation spent even more as you enter the last third of the season.
I wish he'd stop bringing him up every other post. You'd think we let a Don Drysdale get away or something.
Zito is 8 - 8 with a 4.27 era, that's about right for a number 5 starter.
You are not real bright today trollport.
"Just about anyone would be better than Zito.
They tried to get King Felix to do a cameo, but he was too busy....
