Tired of folks still saying Zito sucks
They won the Ws and they ain't there without Zito who hadn't lost since August btw. Some jerk on the warriors board said Zito sucks. All I was saying was that it would be nice if biedrins could have a Zito type comeback and some jerk starts going off on how Zito still sucks. Hey if Zito doesn't win that game against cardinals (and nice bunt) then the giants don't make the WS. Zito redeemed himself. Some people are morons. I was trying to talk about the team and it got into a Zito argument. Zito needs credit.
In baseball it's what u did not how u do it
Like Zito. He couldn't lose in the later part of the season. I don't care of its luck or good run support. He was a winner. He had a good record. Pence not only 104 rbis but 3 very important rbis when they needed it most. It doesn't matter that the shattered bat caused kosmo to get fooled. I rather have that happen then a hard out. Then he had runs in most of the ws games and batted almost 300. It's about winning and it doesn't matter how you do it. If your team needs speeches so be it. Verlander was great all year but panda owned him when it counted. U can argue all u want and say pences hit was lucky or the speech wasn't important or Zito was lucky to not lose since August. Bottom line is it doesn't matter how lucky or good u are if u are a champion. Bonds who I do Like never won. So analyzing is a little overrated. Winning and coming through in the clutch is 1000 times more important than having the prototypical skills and stats. And also sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. That's just baseball. At end of day the ONLY thing that ultimately matters is if you are a champion or a loser. That's some truth. That's what Moneyball lacked. There is no getting around having a heart and getting timely hits making clutch plays. That's why Moneyball never won a championship. In October u want the Cody Ross's not the Barry bonds or anyone who never won a ring.
