It has been quite the nightmare for Zito and the Giants as he started 0-8. Let's not forget that Zito has a 114-84 career mark with a 3.73 ERA. That's where the value lies here. Zito has been that pitcher over his last four starts where he has pitched to a 3.22 ERA. Randy Johnson has found the win column, but his ERA is average, and he has allowed more hits than innings pitched and is no longer the dominant pitcher he has been. The D-backs were quick out of the gate, but have really slid the past week and a half as they are just 2-7 in their last nine. There is lots of value on the Giants here as we expect Zito will at least match Johnson and provide a chance for a big dog surprise.
