The Mets' loss should be the Giants' gain

The Contra Costa Times is reporting that an unnamed Giants' official believes it would be a good idea to hire just-fired Mets' pitching coach Rick Peterson to help Barry Zito, since Zito was most successful when Peterson was his coach. Sounds like a fine idea, so Brian "Stupid" Sabean probably won't do it. After all, why bother trying to make a $126 million investment pay off?

Warren Greshes, who runs the Merc-News' Giants Talk blog, asked pointedly the other day what it's going to be like to deal with having Zito on the roster for five and half more years -- As I’m sitting in front of my TV watching the world’s highest paid #5 starter, I try to be optimistic but it’s really hard. First, I’m thinking to myself, “How badly is this contract going to haunt the Giants when Lincecum, Cain and Sanchez want to get paid?”

Maybe Zito should hire Peterson as his personal coach.
