Giants v. White Sox, 2011 Spring Training Preview: Zito Set to Battle Peavy in Clash of Cy Young Winners

Well, the dog days of Spring Training have officially arrived, that time of the preseason before the games start getting more competitive and the players have to maintain their focus through games that are utterly meaningless. But today we have a Clash of former Cy Young winners as Barry Zito and the San Francisco Giants square off with Jake Peavy and the Chicago White Sox at Scottsdale Stadium this afternoon.

I’m sure most Giants fans would remember just how filthy Peavy was when he was a San Diego Padre, and he still has plenty left in the tank. Zito’s Spring Training has been filled with rumors and critique, but the curveballin’ former Cy Young’er is always a consummate professional, even when he’s riding the pine in the postseason. This will hopefully prove to be a nice pitchers duel between these two today, well, for 3 or 4 innings at least.

Here’s today’s lineup for YOUR San Francisco Giants:

CF Andres Torres
2B Freddy Sanchez
1B Aubrey Huff
C Buster Posey
SS Miguel Tejada
3B Pablo Sandoval
LF Pat Burrell
RF Cody Ross
DH Mark Derosa
P Barry Zito

Game is slated for a 12:05 PT (1:05 MT) start, and will not be broadcast on radio or TV locally. Stay with SB Nation Bay Area for everything Giants including today’s postgame wrap up.
