Barry Zito


Tim Lincecum recently filed for 21.5 mil through arbitration. There is no denying that Lincecum has been one of the best pitchers in the game over the last few years and the Giants are expected to attempt to sign him long term. A long term extension could cost the Giants roughly 22-30 mil a season depending on whether Lincecum is willing to take a team friendly deal or want his market value. The Giants are also notorious for having one of the worst offenses in the league, and with some much potential payroll locked up in Lincecum, the question is where are the going to come up with the money? Barry Zito will cost the team 39 mil over the next 2 season, with a 7 mil buyout. Zito has not lived up to his contract and I am curious as to all your opinions as to

1. whether we would want Zito?

2. If so, what should the Pirates be willing to give up?
