Move over, Jeter. There's a new "Most Overrated."

>> Thursday

And it's Barry Zito, according to a Vinnie Illustrated scientific, non-random Vinnie poll.

What apalls me about this signing is not the sheer amount of money but the fact that there's a GM out there who believes Barry Zito is as valuable as Vernon Wells. Brian Sabean is the dumbest GM ever. That is, until someone else tops him next week. Maybe the Royals will give Gil Meche some kind of belated signing bonus.

The Giants deserve some credit here-for finally signing a player under the age of 35.

However, $126 million for Barry Zito? When you comparables at age 28 include Mike Hampton, Ramon Martinez, Kevin Appier, and Jack McDowell, surely this is not a good omen for things to come.

I guess what baffles me most about everyone's Zito love is that not only are his more under-the-surface stats (i.e. K/BB, GB/FB, etc) not very impressive, but his glamour stats (i.e. W-L, ERA) haven't been that good lately. I just don't know what people see in him. I guess his 2003 Cy Young and his ripping guitar skills. I don't know.

Hey wait a minute, are we trying to compare Black Jack McDowell to Barry "Hippie" Zito??? Black Jack was a much better pitcher, and definitely a better guitar jammer
