Whats your point. That it makes sense because Timmy got overpaid? I think they overpaid Kazmir and didnt even badly need a SP to begin with. Total head scratcher.
My point is that's the price fir starting pitching regardless on how you or I feel ablout it. I think its an over pay but kazmir was gonna get that bread from some team. And also posted nearly the same era and got MORE money. That's my point
Timmy got overpaid obviously but that was as much of a marketing move as it was a baseball move. Giants fans love Timmy and they couldnt imagine him going elsewhere. With Kazmir ..... I have not a clue how he got that much. But, what makes it even worse is that they didnt need to go out and get a SP and could have used their tight budget on bats. Hell, they could have given up marginal prospects and gotten Fister and saved tons of money.
Beane is a smart guy but to me this is a strange move.
