ESPN.com reports that the Giants have relegated Barry Zito to the bullpen.
The Giants are bad enough as it is, but unless you're the Yankees you cannot afford to make a bad 9-figure investment.
As the mid-day guys on WFAN in New York were saying today, the best thing that Mets' GM Omar Minaya didn't do a few years back was to sign Zito. The Mets were in the hunt, but in the end they let Zito go.
The Giants are now wishing they had done the same thing.
