Barry Zito has won 3 games and predictably Zohn readers are getting on me for saying Zito doesn’t stand a chance in hell of winning more than 5 1/2 games this season. I’ts like I committed a sin or broke a law. I made the remark on Comcast TV, and still stand by it.
He pitched well against the Cubs and Padres, no great feat. I don’t believe he will keep this up. We’ve seen this before, a few good starts and then the roof caves in. I’m anticipating some roof action.
I’ll tell you this. I have no stake in Zito failing. If he turns out to be a good pitcher — good enough, say, not to get run off the postseason roster by his own manager (not by me) — I will say good for him, I guess I was wrong, and then I’ll move on with my life. Simple as that.
