Poll: Zito or Woody aka Rueter?


I have been thinking about the new banner and what came to my mind was when Woody was on the team. If you had a choice of Woody or Zito at their prime or during after a few years of their career who would you choose?

Feel free give reason why and so on. I didn't mind Woody pitching, but when the umpires took away his strike zone that totally sucked.

Hamels started toward the dugout after what he thought was a strike. Lincecum didn't get the call & buzzed ump Dana DeMuth w. a fastball that slammed off the backstop & then froze Hamels w. another 3rd strike. 4/28/10 Timmy the ump killer.

I am going to say Zito, only because during his prime he was a CY Young Caliber pitcher. If you go by their entire careers, I'd pick Woody. He was a winner. Didn't always have the best stuff, but you knew you could count on him for 6 solid innings and he gave you a good chance to win every time out. Zito may have been better in his prime, but after those few good years, he's really tailed off. I believe he is close to a .500 pitcher since his CY Young season.

Give me Woody!! At least he was likeable. BaZito drives me crazy!

Besides, there haven't been any shed updates in awhile.

The sad part is the Giants should have signed Lilly and/or Meche for half the money yet the Giants would have gotten just as much production. Heck, Lilly would have probably signed for less than he did with the Cubs just so he could be closer to home (Davis).

Zito = Worst Contract EVER!

Shawn Estes would have taken even less and given the same result as BaZito!
