i really want zito. in a twisted sort of way, i would actually like to have zito over manny. before everyone rips me, let me explain. a proposed trade that is traveling around the internet is milledge and nady for zito, and i wouldnt be all that upset with that. i think that the mets lineup is good as is. it would be as of right now:
now in my mind, the sction of the mets that would need more help would be their rotation primarily due to the fact that i think that wright should not have to bat lower than 4th. he deserves to bat 3rd, beltran bats better when he is 2nd anyway, and delgado is a more than adequate cleanup hitter especially with the protection that floyd provides. now if we could add zito to our rotation, that would be huge. we would have 2 aces at the top, glavine who pitched well at the end of the season pitching 3rd and benson who is usually consistent pitching 4th. then trade seo who has some value as a young pitcher for a good setup man and put trachsel in the 5th spot. if we could possibly add seo to the zito deal if the Aa's throw in octavio dotel. then our bullpen would be great also:
that definately seems like a team that can win a world series to me. does it for you?
where did you hear this from? here is a quote directly from the mlb website:
" A number of teams have inquired about Oakland left-hander Barry Zito, but have been told GM Billy Beane isn't interested in dealing Zito. Beane left Tuesday night as the A's aren't expected to do anything before the end of the arbitration deadline passes."
