Barry Zito's Playoff Blog.

Posted at 8:50 PM on October 3, 2006 by Josh Lee (1 Comments)

This is probably the wrong time to bring it up, but Barry Zito's playoff blog makes for some entertaining reading:

[The Metrodome] is crazy, man. For whatever reason, they put a white roof on it. I guess nobody told them baseballs are white or something. We need to bring back those orange glow-in-the-dark balls we used to have growing up for games here.

For my money, Pat Neshek still has the best player's blog in the game, but Zito's enthusiastic rambling is a lot more fun than the usual post-game soundbites. I'm mostly impressed that they got this posted just a couple of hours after the game; if I had just spent the afternoon getting the home team to chase good, bad, and ugly pitches all over the place to nab an early series lead, it would be days before you could get anything more than "Wooooooo!!!" out of me.

I'd say that the blog almost makes me feel good for Zito, except that I'm still busy feeling miserable for the Twins.

I love how Zito ends this post, talking about quieting the crowd. Glad to see a Twins blog recognizing this champion. Keep up the good work.
