Are these guys serious?

There are two ways to view the windup change that Barry Zito is trying.

He could be criticized for experimenting at this stage of his career. On the other hand, baseball is about adjustments. Zito has lost speed off his fastball, making command that much more important. He believes that by shortening his windup and not bringing his hands over his head, he can spot his pitches better.

Sure, baseball is all about adjustments. But, if Zito –who is 29– has lost that much speed off his fastball, then his deal is already a disaster. He was brought in to be the ace, not to relearn how to pitch. In the time since he’s been here, all we’ve discovered, is that, once again, Brian Sabean does not know how to evaluate talent. Once again, he’s overpaid for mediocrity.

Virtually every player on this team is overpaid, other than the roster fillers. At what point does Magowan wake up and realize his GM is overmatched?
