San Francisco's interest in Zito

Joel Sherman at the NY Post, writes about the Giants interest in Barry Zito:

The Giants, despite reports, have no interest in Randy Johnson. However, they are very, very interested in a left-hander who could impact a New York team's plans.

The Yankees did contact San Francisco about Johnson. The conversation lasted long enough for San Francisco to explain it had no interest in a 43-year-old due $16 million coming off back surgery. Besides, San Francisco currently is allocating its money elsewhere, signaling to Scott Boras a willingness to exceed the magical $100 million barrier for Barry Zito, an official involved in Zito negotiations said.
