Giants manager Bruce Bochy told MLB.com’s Chris Haft that he isn't sure where Barry Zito fits into the team's long-term plans. Zito, who has pitched 49 2/3 innings of 5.62 ERA ball this year, has $46MM remaining on his contract after 2011
And ironically Soriano has $54M remaining on his contract, the good is that Zito has a $7M buyout in 2014. Just to add fuel to the fire, Soriano's WAR is 1.2 and Zito's is -0.2 but in 2010 Zito was 2.1 and Soriano was 3.0 while 2009 Soriano was -0.1 while Zito was 2.2
Cubs need starting pitching and Giants need offense.
