The good Barry Zito returns

Very few people are going to notice what with Mark Buehrle throwing a perfect game today, but Zito decided to pitch like an ace today in a satisfying 5-1 vic in Atlanta.

Why was it satisfying? Partly because the expectations have become so low for the Giants that the announcers on XM, who included Don Sutton, admitted that they were surprised at the show of competence from the Orange and Black, and they went so far as to say the Braves had played lousily. "That's going to happen once ever 10, 12 games, even to teams that are playing well -- like the Braves have been," one of them said.

I admit I have a soft spot for Sutton for having punched out the sanctimonious Steve Garvey while they were both Dodgers.

Just be glad your season isn't over like the Mets season. I would gladly trade places with the G-Men right now.
