The Barry Zito Salary and Garlic Fry Calculator

Actually, what the has created is a “calculator” to determine how long it would take you to make what Barry Zito makes in one season ($14.5 million dollars). It is reasonable and safe to assume that the citizens of the greater Bay area are fed up with Mr. Zito.
Ever wonder just how under-paid you are? Consider this: The salary of Giants pitcher Barry Zito — who’s currently 0-5 for the season — is $14.5 million this year. How many years would it take for you to make what Zito makes in one year? And most importantly, just how many orders of garlic fries does that buy? Select your annual pay range from the dropdown menu below and see how you score. (Note: Garlic fries calculation is based on gross pay; all results are approximations.)
Based on my FanHouse salary alone ($170,000.00 - $175,000.00), it would take me 84 years to make what Barry makes in . Also, and far more helpfully, it appears that I can purchase 25,556 orders of garlic fries. Sadly, I will continue to be bitter because Barry can purchase 2,148,148 orders of garlic fries. (/shakes fist angrily towards the sky)

Okay, this is really, really freaking funny. Not as funny as what the Giants [over]paid for Zito, but still, quite funny. But all jokes aside, it does pretty accurately portray just how sick the city of San Francisco is of Barry … and we’re only year two! It wouldn’t surprise me at all to see some sort of trade where the Giants end up eating like 75% of his salary just to appease the masses at this point.
