Barry Zito good pitcher?

It has to be the socks that have changed the way Barry Zito has pitched this season. He is off the best start to his career ever even better than his Cy Young season. He is 3-0 with a 1.32 ERA and a 2.52 FIP. I don't expect this to last all season but if he can give us 30+ starts of solid pitching with 3.5-4.0 ERA I would call this a good season. Keep the sock magic going.

Zito over his career has tended to be a slow starter and has been better in the second half. I couldn't imagine him being much better than the current stretch that he is on.

Between Zito and Lincecum at the top of the rotation have accounted for 7 the Giants 10 wins. That is good and it is not like the next two pitchers in the rotation can't deal either.

I am still feeling good after last nights game. The formula was perfect great pitching and timely hitting. I feel a little bad for Adam Wainwright who pitched pretty well too but the Giants karma on these games was bound to turn. Maybe there is magic inside, if the Giants can stay at .500 on the road things will look good for this season.

Let's go Cain, another win would be icing but it would be a big confidence boost before another tough series against the Phillies.
