Barry Zito has been named the starter tonight against the Pittsburgh Pirates after being demoted to the bullpen last week. The San Francisco Giants skipped him in the rotation for his last start and he has thrown just two bullpen sessions since. He has not appeared out of the pen and has not received any game experience since his demotion. Why the sudden change of heart?
For all you Giants fans out there, we’re going to do a poll today to see how many runs you think he’ll give up tonight:
Also, just for giggles, how many innings will he last?
Raise your voice and shout out an opinion on the game tonight! I can’t wait to hear what each of you have to say. My guess is he’ll last 4 2/3 innings and give up 5-6 runs. Be bold people! Put your money where your mouth is.
