Barry Zito is staying in the Bay Area. Seven(!) years, $126 million.
The A's will end up with the 10th pick in the second round as a result, as well as a sandwich pick between the first and second rounds.

Brown signed for 7 years / $105 million in 1998 at age 34.
GMTA .... this news made me think back to when Brown signed that contract ...
Thankfully, Zito is younger and not anywhere near as surly ....
