    Kazmir Released

    Should the RS take a shot on signing him to a minor league contract? He used to kill us on the mound and he's just 27. Another LH in the BP who could spot start would be a plus!

    The name doesn't even matter.  A minor league contract is almost always 'worth ' taking a chance on someone (unless theres some stipulations for making the big league). 

    That said, no one should expect much from Kazmir and be happily surprised if he actually figures himself out.

    Give him a AAA contract and see what he has...

    Yes, but only if he starts in Portland.  I don't want him stealing time from Duckworth ... or anyone with potential.

    Re: Kazmir Released

    "The Angels released Kazmir, eating $14.5 million in salary, after another poor outing in Triple-A, where he's 0-5 and has allowed 30 runs in 15 1/3 innings. He's just 27 years old and while some team will give him a chance to rediscover his mechanics and wicked slider, it's quite likely his major league career is over. It will take high levels of mental strength and patience for Kazmir to stick with it."

    0-5 WITH A ~18 ERA IN TRIPLE A. Yeah, don't expect anything if you sign him to a minor league contract.

    See, this is the type of "low risk/high reward" move I'd like. He's still young, and has shown to be a great pitcher in the past. As long as they don't go into it relying on him and expecting him to make it back to the big leagues...just sign him, work with him and see where it ends up.

    Have you looked at his numbers in AAA?

    I think you should change your name to obliviosike.

    I'm almost positive that Mr. Cashman is on the phone right now as we speak.

    Re: Kazmir Released

    I agree, the Yankees are probably working on this right now. Now that his terrible ML contract is gone, he is a perfect low risk, high reward signing. I'd be very pleased if the Sox sign him as he has so much potential but has just failed to find it recently for some reason (see Oliver Perez). Duckworth is just a filler in his thirties. Despite any success at AAA, he has little chance of making it big. Maybe a spot start from a callup, that's it.

    Now we do know that Cashman doesn't always tell the media the truth but here was the latest out of NY........

    The Yankees, who sent career minor-leaguer Brian Gordon to the mound against the Rangers on Thursday, do not sound interested in Kazmir.

    "I haven't looked into it. I know he's struggled a lot, and I know he isn't throwing like he used to," Yankees GM Brian Cashman said.

    Your kidding right...I hope so. But, if i missed the sarcasm I apologize..

    They are both bad, but id take Kaz on age and the fact that he could at least be a good lefty out of the pen..

    this looks like a future yankee to me.  he can be with the rest of the retreds, colon, prior, garcia, millwood and now kazmir.  He is a perfect fit.

    Yup, AAA is as far as I would go to see what he has.  The Rays blew this kids arm out early with way too many innings pitched.

    good point bald-predictions.  The  yankees will pick him up after he failes with 3 more teams.  I am so ashamed that I made that mistake.

    27 going on 37...high mileage on that arm, way too young when he got to the majors and pitching in our division wasted him

    Not hard to sign a guy that costs almost nothing. Nothing to lose, now that the Angles have cut their sunk cost loose.

    I was hoping this was a Tim Wastefield thread.

    The correct spelling is fails, not failes.

    The only reason to do it is so we could play Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" when he comes out of the bullpen.

    Well, just because he's got a red dot, doesn't mean he's not salvageable.



    Ahem, Sheriff.  It's Scott Kazmir who used to pitch for the Tampa Rays, not cashmere, which is a fine material used in sweaters.  That's cashmere (c-a-s-h-m-e-r-e), not Kazmir (K-a-z-m-i-r).



    Ooh, that's different, Cheddar Cheese.

    After TB traded Kazmir, softy claimed they were idiots and would "go away for good". Before last year began he said TB was short a starter and has a "weak pen".

    He's grasping for straws now in hopes that Wake will falter and one of his reclamation projects will succeed, and tht somehow this will vindicate his horrific record of late.
