Barry Zito Voicemail Invokes Unicorns (AUDIO)
Barry Zito's massive contract has long been albatross for the San Francisco Giants, but the team can't complain with his production so far this year. The lefty is 6-1 with a 2.15 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP.
While Zito's ERA may be a bit unexpected, so is the message he left for one lucky recipient over the weekend. Zito left a voicemail for Bay Area radio personality Mychael Urban. In the message, Zito explains that he missed a scheduled interview because he was detained at a unicorn stable for braiding the mane of his "favorite" unicorn. "They told me I can make one call and I'm calling you," he said. "Luckily I memorized your number." Scroll down to hear the message.
