Zito to sign with Giants


Looks like the M's are out of the Barry Zito sweepstakes. The left-hander has reached a preliminary agreement with the Giants on a seven-year, $126 million contract. Sorry, but $18 million a year is a little out of the M's range.

So is Randy Johnson, and that's a good thing, according to the Times' Larry Stone. The Zito comments in this column are already, sadly, out of date.
