Tony Zarrella, the sports director at 19 Action News and host of Tailgate 19, came on the air this morning to talk about the Indians signing of Jason Giambi and Daisuke Matsuzaka. Tony Z called the signing ‘ridiculous’, and doesn’t like the plan of a designated hitter by committee approach manager Terry Francona seems to be hinting at. Tony criticized the move, and said Cleveland sports fans are smart, and shouldn’t be duped by these moves. Tony also commented on the big breaking news of the morning: Pope Benedict XVI resigning, which Tony had not yet heard, who wanted to know “why?” Tony wrapped up his segment by talking a little Cavs basketball and the emerging second unit on the team.
