Would LOVE this. Zito's one of my faves. A sincere guy unlike phony balonies like Curt Schilling ("I just wanna thank jesus & George W for this win."), a Phish fan, and reunited with Peterson would return him to Cy Young status.

Shouldn't this be on a Mets message board? I think Zito would fit well there in the NL and with Peterson. As far as the Sox go I would rather have Mulder or Hudson.

Buehrle
Garcia
Mulder
Contreras
Diaz/Cotts/Grilli/Wright/Free Agent?

Nah, it should be on the "Talking Baseball" board of wsi.com

Im sure you have pitched with stitches in your ankle, also, so you would know what inner strength it takes to do it. Schilling didnt do the typical athlete "I won so I will thank god". He said that he found god several years ago, and that it what gave him the inner strength to pitch those games. I guess that makes a "phony balony".
Zito, by the way, real good guy. What was especially awesome was when he came out of the game with his team one loss away from elimination because he was tired (tired or stoned, you decide). That's what legends are made of. If only he were a phony like Schilling, maybe god would have given him the strength to not take himself out of the game, too.

I remember hearing a Schilling quote around the time he was traded to the Red Sox. He said he wasn't in baseball for the money. He then made the Red Sox sign him to an extenstion before approving a trade to them.

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that Zito's a republican. I've like him ever since that SI article about him and the "power of positive thinking"

Please. Calling a guy fake because he:
1. Thanks god for helping him achieve in life.
2. Is able to speak his mind about his political beliefs despite living in an area were those beliefs are highly contreversial.

I'll be offended for Curt Shilling.

Seriously, unless there's been a change in philosophy around here this should have been removed and sent to the roadhouse.

I'm sure Curt will be happy for you.

If you can't sense sarcasm without help that's your own damn fault.

When I need help doing my job I'll be sure to let you know, till then I think I got it covered.
