Scott Kazmir???

Postby stomperrob » Fri Mar 18, 2005 4:26 am

I keep reading that he's the next big thing, a can't miss. In 7 of my 8 leagues he's been drafted (I grabbed him off waivers in the other). Is he gonna flop a la Matt Riley, or be a pleasant surprize a la Noah Lowry???

I wouldn't draft him unless in a keeper, he'll be garbage on a bad team with signs of his eventual talent.

He is a good end game draft pick.

He has been picked up in every draft that I have had so far.
The problem is that most Hyped up pitchers like him usually don't meet expectations during there first year.
he is worth a gamble though

i have in a couple leagues. decent late gamble because he can strikeout a ton of people. since he is so young many people are expecting him to have an up and down year---some really bad games mixed in with some really good games.

I often pick him in the 21st and last round in Yahoo live drafts. The guy has got a great arm and will have a K/IP ratio around 1.0 but of course drawbacks could be a low win total (on a bad team) and a high whip and era (rookie). But it doesn't hurt to take him with your last pick as your worst SP is usually a replacement level player anyways and can be replaced off of the waiver wire pretty easily if need be.

if u wanna go with a young guy i would go with david bush... he showed potential last year.. though he doesnt have a big arm, he had a nice era and decaeent strike out totals

he strikes me as the Greinke of this year... all the skills to be an elite pitcher on a really bad team as a really young guy. May eventually be the bee's knees, but for now just a late round flier or keeper material.

i see him struggling most of the year because of his control problems...he wont be getting great run support and will be trying to do to much which will just make that worse...i dont think the extra k;s are worth the hit u will be taking in era and whip and dont realy see him getting more than 10 wins this year....plus most of his starts will be against nyy, bos, balt who all have explosive line ups...once he figures the majors out i think he will be nasty and cant believe the mets traded him

i have kazmir in only one of my teams cuz someone dropped him and i have no pitching in that league, but i'm not expecting too much from him. he had pretty good numbers in the minors, good ERA and k/9, but i think it could take a little while for him be consistent in the majors.

the problem with drafting kazmir is that someone will prolly take him too early.
