    Is Barry Zito the Best Pitcher in the MLB?













    I can't think of anyone I'd prefer on the hill at the moment.

    at the moment yes.

    he's had an odd career at first he was amazing with the A's then he signs a huge deal....

    sucks for about 8 years and now hes a beast again.

    location, decepetion, movement. His pitches start out looking like strikes out of his hand and when the batter goes to swing its not a pitch they can do much with.

    OK, everybody who thought Barry Zito would have more hits at this point (3 for 4) than Jason Heyward (2 for 28), raise your hand. Anyone?

    People actually agreed with you on this!? HAHAHA

    This is a joke & there's plenty of pitchers better than Zito at the moment. (Kershaw, Hernandez, Strasburg...)
