Kazmir Velocity?

Postby nathan050904 » Wed Apr 25, 2007 1:57 am

Anyone else noticing that he's not throwing mid-high 90's? Is this a gun error? Let me know- Thanks

Definitely not a gun error, but in previous years when I've watched him he's never been regularly mid 90's either. He's always pitched stably in the 90-93 mph range and dialed it up when he has to.

Yeh Kazmir usually throws the 92 o 93 MPH range. But sometimes he will really let loose and thow 95.

I thought Kazmir pitched a great game, hurt by some errors (one of his own) that cost him the W. If he could have gotten one more out he would have gotten the W. I think right now he is doing fine, with the D-Rays O going the way it is I think he can be a pretty sweet SP this year.

Kazmir's outing was very concerning last night. The velocity on his fastball was way down 82-88, did NOT crack 90 once. On top of that, he was all over the place, the Rays Commentators called it 'Effective Wilderness', but the fact is the Yankees lineup seemed uncharacteristicly impatient last night swinging on many bad pitches(maybe due to the current losing skid). The commentators also mentioned that in his delivery, he wasn't using his legs to drive as much and they think that he might be affected by the flu bug in the TB clubhouse.

I would definitely monitor his next couple of starts.

On my TV set he was throwing 91mph yesterday and although he got himself into many 3-0 and 3-1 counts, he issued just a couple of walks and only Hideki Matsui was able to make solid contact. After a terrible start to the season this was definitely an encouraging outing. He will find another 2 or 3 mph and improve his command over the course of the season and will no doubt be fine

Kazmir's performance against the Yanks was definitely something pretty sweet. I didnt see anything wrong with his velocity.

He wasn't sharp but it was a pretty good outing in general.

If any of my starter could have an outing like that against the best offense in baseball i would be the happier of all fantasy baseball managers!

Kazmir was just fine yesterday.

Some people are born to complain it seems.
