What's the secret to Zito's 120-7 record with 4+ runs of support?

3
  1. 4 runs? Anybody can have a good record with 4 runs of support
  2. A lead boosts Zito's confidence which improves his stuff
  3. When Zito loses, he usually only lasts 3 innings or less and there isn't time to score 4 runs
  4. His nibbling, "effectively wild" style produces poor pitches to swing at, which hitters try to hit more often when they are trying to catch up
  5. Are we not allowed to create Polls anymore? Couldn't figure out how to do it...

Rebuilding trade for prospects?

When was the last time the Giants made a blockbuster-type trade in which they traded away a star to get prospects? Please tell me it wasn't the Matt Williams trade 15ish years ago! Looking at the R...

Opinions about Garrett Atkins? "The Giants aren't getting much production from Travis Ishikawa at the plate, though the plus/minus system ranks him as the best defensive first baseman in the league. Verducci wonders if the Giants would use Jonathan Sanchez to acquire a player such as Jorge Cantu, Nick Johnson, Miguel Tejada or Garrett Atkins." What do you think about trying to acquire Garrett Atkins? Is he over the hill, or just slumping this year and disinterested in a team that is going nowhere? I think he's worth the gamble and he's only 28... Sanchez for Atkins straight up?

"Matt Palmer looking for his 6th straight win..."

Not exactly something you hear everyday on ESPN. This is the same AAAA pitcher that we brought up for a couple spot starts last year, posting a shiny ERA of 8.53 with an even shinier WHIP of 2.37. Is this guy just getting lucky being on a team that can hit once in a while and pitching out of his mind so far, or did we miss out on another diamond in the rough?

Poll: Rays or Giants?

With all this talk regarding our pitchers and the rumors of potential trades, it seems like the D-Rays seem to be the most coveted trading partners. They just traded Delmon Young, but in addition...

Correia = the new Blownitez!?

It seems like every time he comes into a game late with the score tied or protecting a slim lead, Mr. Correia gives up the go ahead homer, or the critical walk or hit to help lose the game. He is...
