With pitching coach Rick Peterson out of work, after being swept out the door with ex-Mets manager Willie Randolph, is there any reason for the Giants not to bring him in to help the soon to be out of baseball Barry Zito?
Zito, who was shelled –again– and saw his record fall to 2-11, (including a close your eyes 0-7 at home), is well on his on way to becoming the biggest contract albatross in sports history.
The Giants have nothing to lose, Peterson would be working for free, since the Mets are on the hook for his salary the next two seasons. Sure seems like a perfect fit to me. I mean, we’re only talking about another $100 million or so on the line.
