Kazmir's division is too tough for me to feel comfortable starting him on a consistent basis. Don't forget how young Bonderman is (almost 23). He has a LOT of room to improve, even though it seems like he's been in the league for a while.




u do know that kazmir is only 21 right??? so bonderman really has a whole year of experience on kazmir right now,,, will be interesting to see if kazmir improves this year like bonderman did last year......


Yes, I realize that. I was just saying that it seems like people think Kazmir's ceiling is much higher because he's so young...when in reality Bonderman is only slightly older than him. I don't agree with the people who say that Kamzir's got better "stuff" as I see them as about even. Granted, I've seen Bonderman pitch many more times than I've seen Kazmir...but I have seen 2 or 3 of Kazmir's starts I believe.

They're not that far apart, but when the competition is fairly close, I think Bonderman gets the HUGE edge not playing in the AL east.

kazmirs stats verse

boston 3.68 era 1 win in 5 starts
new york 2.77 era 1 win in 2 starts
toronto 1.72 era 1 win in 5 starts
baltimore 3.33 era 2 win in 4 starts

kazmirs stats this year were actually better in his own division then they were against non AL East teams,,, of course this will probably not be true every year from here on out

but his 3 worst teams


pittsburgh 17.36 era 0 wins in 1 start
kansas city 8.18 era 1 win in 2 starts
detroit 7.27 era 1 win in 2 starts

I'll attribute that solely to small sample sizes. THere's a very slim chance he'll pull that off again. It's hard to be a "big game" pitcher when you're a Devil Ray. How many big games will they actually play?
