The San Francisco Beat

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 [1] 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.
