Zito on Yabu

OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: Zito on Yabu

Since Arn Tellem represents both Zito and Yabu, Zito knew the signing was coming.

"I think it's pretty cool. I think he's going to add some good flavor to the clubhouse. I don't think it really affects my role as far as being leader or whatever because of the language barrier but I'm really looking forward to meeting the guy and showing him around." And

"I hear his interpreter's a cool dude who's really into music. So I'm looking forward to getting to know both of them. I'll do whatever I can to make them both feel comfortable."

Hmm, wonder if the interpreter is better at the guitar than Barry? :) Anyway, that's good to hear and to see Barry taking that leadership role seriously. Wonder if Yabu knows to beware at rookie hazing time?

Sorry, that was from A's mlb site; everything else stated thereon was pretty much what we've all already read on the different sites this morning.

Maybe we will get Sushi as a menu/food choice from the concession stands. I'm not making that statement "tounge & cheek" I really enjoy the stuff! Let's see Safeco has the "Ichi Roll" ours could be "Yabu Kadabra Roll" one bite & poof! It magically disapears all for $10! Well I better get back to work.

Not sure if this guitar playing thing is a good idea for Barry. I have heard his musical contributions and all I can say is that I am glad he has a day job. I can just see Barry noodling on the guitar with Hattey, Harden and Yabu's interpreter while wailing his original composition "Boy Next Door". I think it would be the worse form of rookie hazing.

Good to know Barry is definitely taking charge and making the newbies comfy in the clubhouse, though.

They sell sushi at the phone park.

They used to sell BBQ pork buns from Jade Villa at the Coli back in the Bash Bros. days. I haven't seen them ever since they renovated the stadium. I could live on those things for days. Actually, I have.

Jade Villa was at the Coli up until about 4-5 years ago.
