Where is the love for this guy? I know it's early, but as an owner I am very encouraged by what I have seen this year. A great game against the Sox a while ago and now another against Seattle. Is he finally ready to dominate the bigs? Thoughts?

I traded Kaz for Ensberg at the beginning of the season. Boy did I think I was the smart one at the time :-/

i'm having trouble imagining the league that would even leave him on the WW.

i passed on all the "big boys" of starting pitching this year, opting for the kazmirs, vazquezs, and cliff lees, etc. these guys predictably fell into the late middle-rounds of my mixed-league 12-team, and i was on 'em like white on rice.

kazmir is still developing. i think his 2nd half will be ferocious.

edit: his biggest issue has been hubris! he sometimes appears to lose focus in a game, getting too cute or too heat-reliant. watch him grow up this season and reach a good balance point.

it's a 10 team 5x5 with only 2 bench spots, so if a guy is struggling you cant always stash him away

He's got great stuff and great #s.... SInce last years all star break and up to this season so far, he's one of the elite starters in the league.... WIsh the whip was a little lower, but in every other category, he's gold.

Considering that he plays for a weak team that's had some DL issies, and he's in a tough division, having 5 wins at this point is amazing.

Regardless of how good you think Kazmir is right now or even at the time the trade was made that's one point on which we can all agree.
