The Giants will lead the world in Barrys this year. It's a dubious distinction.
We didn't get our man. Barry Zito signed with San Francisco for money that makes Jeff Suppan look positively impoverished. Not the paltry six years, $96 million talked about in Texas and surely not the five years, $75 million reportedly proposed by the Mets.
Seven years. $126 million.
When it gets that high, you put your bidding paddles away.
