The Giants are considering moving Barry Zito to the bullpen after a horrible start to the 2008 regular season, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. "We're going to get together here," manager Bruce Bochy said. "We've got to do something different. There's no doubt about that. We can't keep doing what we're doing. We need to get together and get a game plan on what we think is best." San Francisco gave Zito a $125 million contract after the 2006 season. One option could be placing Barry in the bullpen. "That's an option. Sure," Bochy added. "Obviously it's hurting the team right now," Zito said. "It's not a good place to be personally, but those guys make the decisions and we always trust what they want us to do. They know how to manage teams and ballclubs. I've brought it on myself. It's not that they're acting rash in a situation that wouldn't call for it."
