With all the trades going on, we forget, or at least I forget that baseball is a business, and there are negotiations that go on also with current players. As Wednesday looms ever closer, so does the arbitration deadline for Brandon Belt’s 2016 contract. Let’s note though that the last time the Giants had an arbitration hearing it was back in 2004.
Belt has asked for $7.5 million and the Giants offered $5.3 million, due to the deadline and how close it is, it looks like they will be focused on a one-year contract compared to a multiyear contract.
So we wait for Wednesday.

Barry Zito will report to AAA Nashville and sounded excited about it. Zito made the following comments to SFGate.
“I didn’t stay in shape for a year and go all in to go rush and sit at home,” Zito said. “A lot of retired guys I’ve talked to regretted that they didn’t keep going. … Go to a brand-new park in Nashville, good music town, take my wife and kid and just have fun with it.”
Many notable A’s will start the year on the disabled list. This includes Coco Crisp, Sean Doolittle, Nate Frieman, Josh Reddick, Jarrod Parker, and AJ. Griffin.cialis cost in usa
The Exhibition Season is concluding with a bright and sunny East Bay day. Tim Hudson, formerly of the “A’s Big 3”, will pitch for the Giants and Brett Pomerantz will start for the A’s. More excitingly for Bay Area baseball fans, A’s Manager Bob Melvin has indicated that Zito will get an inning of relief and pitch against the Giants.
A’s and Giants fans alike will enjoy Zito in this game. Zito played a special role in the Giants’ 2nd World Series, winning and starting a crucial Game 7 and was a fan favorite while with the A’s, while leading them to the ALCS and winning a Cy Young. Zito is not likely to make the A’s roster and it is unknown whether he will accept an assignment to AAA. Interest around the league for Zito is unknown. It is thought that Billy Beane would let Barry leave the A’s to pursue any such opportunity.

Today’s A’s Notes for April 1st:
- A’s Reliever Sean Doolittle and his Girlfriend have pledged to buy any unwanted tickets for the first A’s LGBT or Pride night. In a funny letter written to season ticket holders that is available, here. Doolittle offers to purchase unwanted tickets and calls on others to join his quest and fill the stadium.
- Through SFGate’s Susan Slusser, Bob Melvin says Crisp felt some issues with his right elbow in a minor league camp game Slusser hinted that he sounds like a DL candidate to open the season.
- The Let Zito Pitch campaign took a serious hit yesterday, actually 3 bombs. He gave up three homers and four runs in the third inning and seven runs overall in four innings. Zito was always a long shot to make the roster simply based on the A’s pitching talent. While he had a 13 scoreless innings prior to yesterday, many of the games were against B squads or minor league squads. SFGate considers it a certainty and in an article discussing his outing said “Zito, who will not be on Oakland’s Opening Night roster.”
Bob Melvin commented on Zito’s outing:“He basically had one bad inning, and a pretty good spring,” manager Bob Melvin said. “He’s been terrific. You have to look at the entire body of work, not just one inning.”
Zito will travel with the team North for the Bay Bridge Series this weekend against the Giants, but beyond that his status is unknown.

“Let Zito Pitch”
I know, I know, I know! Why would you have Zito come back and pitch?! The word “emotions” has been floating around. We want to remember the Cy Young winner as an A’s pitcher. The Giants pitcher who won game 1 of the 2012 World Series. Now, the pitcher who has worked hard to come back to the major leagues. So the rumors say it might be doubtful with the A’s, the rumors have it that he has it for the big leagues again.
I personally love the stories of the guys who need to struggle to come back, who pull at our heartstrings and seem to be generally liked by their team members, by the public. The articles aren’t about them bashing their team, the managers, or the fans, but about what a humble, self motivated person you are. So whether the A’s put Zito on the 40 man roster or not, I think he deserves to pitch one game.
So…. LET ZITO PITCH!cialis generic over the counter
