BARRY ZITO IN A NEW YORK STATE OF MIND
Jon Heyman writes today about Barry Zito contemplating life after Oakland. What I find amusing is Jason Giambi and Johnny Damon cackling about Zito coming to the Highlanders. The first thought that went through my head was are Giambi and Damon plotting an overthrow of the Highlander clubhouse? That clubhouse is run by Tight Ass Jeter who is runs a steady ship along with his consiglaire Jorge (Cab Doors) Posada. Maybe Giambi and Damon are looking to add some more free spirited types to counter the corporate creeps that run the clubhouse that Jeter built.
But as Heyman writes at the end of his story, don't forget Zito and our very own Professor Rick have a strong bond and of course the Mets clubhouse is open to free expression.
