I woke up at 5:30 this morning to let the cat out (he has me trained really well) and thought that I might
have felt a minor tremor. Just now, I thought to look back and see if there was one. Yep! 2.8 on the Richter at 5:37 AM,
same location as the earlier ones, but smaller amplitude.
I'm gonna have to think about making a seismograph.

Left-handed pitcher Barry Zito has agreed to a seven-year, $126 million contract, according to The Associated Press and other sources.
I'm gonna have to start measuring my salary in millizitos.
Seriously though, I'm not sure whether this was a reasonable choice. Zito is on record saying that he wants to win not just a World Series ring, but in fact multiple rings. If that really is true, does he genuinely think that the Giants organization is going to be the way to do it? I've never been impressed by the Giants personnel moves: I can't think of a single trade or acquisition that they made which was truly outstanding, since perhaps the acquisition of Bonds himself. The Giants frequently miss the real big name guy, and pay too much for the second best guy. Luckily, the new Barry will see an era beyond the old Barry, which I think at least will give the Giants some greater room to maneuver and to reimagine their team in a new way.
