Giants made this move to sew up the hole of Jason Schmidt, and it's the market that got Zito this contract, if not the Giants then the Mets or Rangers would've blown this kind of money on him.

I like Zito, but he isn't a dominant pitcher. He relies on his offspeed pitches, fastball only gets around 88 MPH, and gets inconsistent when that awesome deuce isn't working for him.

So 126 mill to a guy that you hope that he brings his curveball with him every single time he goes out there, or be prepared to get 7 runs hung up on you iby the 3rd inning.
