and right now, we should say, it's a partial 5-5 ball game in the seventh inning at fenway park, what a night for mike yastrzemski, he's quickly become a fan favorite. now there's another guy that's worn a giant uniform in the past, and a lot of times they put out a book and there will be something salacious written inside of it, that helps insight books is, i think barry zito and his new book curveball didn't really intend for this to happen, but as you may remember, he was left off the postseason roster in 2010 and admits in the book that he was actually rooting against the giants while he was on the team. rooted against the team because my ego was full control, and if we lost i could basically get out of here. now, strong reaction to that by long time broadcaster mike krukow on knbr this morning. >> well i do believe it's human nature. if you are eight years old. i just think that's a story he
was better off keeping to himself. these are your teammates, these are the guys that were diving into walls for you when you were pitching. these are guys that were right there for you. how can you root against them, i don't care how hurt you are, you get out there and root for your team. giants fans don't forget this. and they are not going to forget what he said. >> yeah, it doesn't make barry zito look very big, to actually root against the team. like mike said, that is doing all out for you. meanwhile, why not check this story. 5.7 walk off at the university of miami ball team, they were ahead of 56-0, but they let him play, he scores a touchdown, you want to see an all-time race? he is so incredibly happy. he scores a touchdown, and a walk on, you've got to feel
