It is truly amazing what he has done this year. He has always had some pop, but could never put it together. I guess being on a team without any expectations worked wonders for him.

small contract.

We have him under rights for 2 more years in which he is Arbitration elig

I want them to go ahead and resign him to a long term deal. He is by far the best 1B in our system. He is dominant on offense and a great defensive 1B. There is no one behind him who he is blocking, so keep him

I dont think that he can put up .280 / 40 HR / 115 RBI and great defense year in and year out

that being said he is a very good defensive 1st baseman and if he can bat .265 with 32 HR and 95 RBI each year I wouldn't be complaining

Who knows. He was a number 8 pick overall, but struggled. He has changed his hitting and has hit well, maybe he finally has hit his stride and turned into what he was supposed to be

Kazmir also will become our first pitcher in history with 200 Ks in a season tonight. ;-D



As far as Pena goes, he at one time was a very good prospect in the minors. He wasn't a Delmon Young, Alex Gordon type, but was a prospect that could be a 35 home run a year hitter. As far as locking him up at this time, I don't think that should be high on our end of the year list of things to do. Locking Kazmir up should be first along with getting some help for the pen for next year and getting some depth at C and maybe even the OF. We really don't have very many tradeable commodities this offseason so most of our deals will have to be free agent signing. Heck maybe our Iwamura signing lets us go into Japan again and sign another player.
