Is he going for a repeat of last year? He started last year with a CG Shutout. Looking good through 6 innings.
Only @ AT&T. Could have been 2-3 bombs in most parks today.

Instead he's worked his butt off to reinvent himself into a usable pitcher, and while that contract will always be bad - he's producing solid innings.

just picked him up. he does this every year with good starts
I don't know about every year. Looks an awful lot like last year.
He is pitching with a new swagger since the end of last season. I think he really worked on certain parts of his game and should have a solid year at the end of the Giants rotation.

stuff-wise, he's the same guy. but it looks like he's handling himself better (that and limiting walks in general).
looks like Cain and Vogelsong taught him well how to get out of tight situations.

Bochy better not let that option vest, though. Need to mix in some 5 inning games. I'm sure Barry will oblige enough times.

last 4 starts counting the playoffs Zito has given up 1 earned run in 4 games...against cardinals (twice), tigers and rockies...that's freaking insane
Never thought Id contemplate picking up Barry Zito but hes been solid dating back to the tail end of last yr.
I dont think he's ever even done three 1-run starts in a row with the Giants

his FB is sitting at 83-84mph... im not sold
Doesn't he still have that big 12 to 6 curveball though?
In his home park, and heck, in that division, he's going to be able to get away with 83-84 as long as he's locating well and mixing his pitches enough to keep guys from sitting on his FB.
I'm looking at his last 9 starts now, dating back to September 9 of last year, and he's been a QS machine. His worst start in that span was 6 IP, 3 ER.
If my math is correct, he has a 1.40 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP over those last 9 starts (58 IP), with a 9-0 record and 40 Ks. The K rate is nothing special, but WOW he has been a pretty effective...

Of course...it's early and I certainly say that with a little sarcasm, but it's something to be encouraged about.
