I still hate this Kazmir signing.
dont feel bad about the Kazmir signing, that's the market for SPs now
Feldman got 3 years 30 mill from the Astros, Nolasco got 4 years 50 mill
Beane was explaining on 95.7 how Kazmir's velocity is as high as it was in 2010, it dropped since then but came back last year. He was saying how he thinks he'll be even better this year than last year, and he wasn't awful last year. He had 9 Ks per 9 innings which is pretty good for someone that was out of the league the year before. And he's still 29, which is the prime age for SPs.
Maybe I'm just being too optimistic, but I have faith in Beane and wouldn't be surprised if Kazmir does really well for us.
Now hopefully we trade for a middle of the line up bat, and a good 2B/SS
