I was wondering this the other day, if there were a movie based on Berry Zito's journey from ace pitcher, to huge contract bust, to redemption in the last few years, who would play Zito. The first one to come to mind was Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
On a serious note, what Zito is doing right now is making me really feel happy for him. For all the crap that he took (And sometimes deservedly so, to have the Giants go 16-0 when he pitches and to hear that crowd roar when he was coming back to the dugout is such a great story.
Of course the cynical side to the argument was that this is a contract year, but he was doing this last year and in major games like the games in the NLCS and the World Series (I think it was Game 4 in the NLCS and Game 1 of the World Series).
