Barry Zito - Anorexic

If Spring Training were a woman, I would have sex with her. I love it that much. So let's talk some baseball...

Barry Zito was named the Opening Day starter yesterday by Bruce Bochy. Zito is, you know, kind of a big deal, what with his $126 kagillion contract and all, so anything he does is going to generate attention from the folks over at the Chronicle or the Merc. Take this story, for example...

Barry Zito's off-season workout included never, ever eating

Barry Zito will carry a lot less weight to spring training this week, figuratively and literally. He has lost 10 pounds, reduced his body fat by 5 percent and shed some of the baggage he carried to his first Giants spring training last year as the highest-paid pitcher in baseball.

Did Zito really need to lose 10 pounds? I didn't really think weight was his issue. Kind of thought it was more his 85 mph "heater" than his weight. Regardless, Zito's performance this year will be critical if the Giants want to reach 63 wins.
