Kazmir the real deal?

Postby Mowntineer » Fri May 10, 2013 9:43 pm

How does everyone feel about Kazmir's return? He has looked solid lately and seems like a potential add soon. Thoughts?

Doesn't hurt to give him a shot. He's got potential. Stuff was good, velocity was great, control was good. It's impossible to tell at this point how the rest of the season will go for him though.

I picked him up. I've never been so terrified in my life.

This! The velocity is back. I don't plan on him staying healthy, but might as well take a flyer while he is.

All signs point to yes. Unlike the Liriano game where it looks like a good bit of luck was involved this was just a completely dominating game against a team with good plate discipline that doesn't usually let pitchers be 'effectively wild'.

We'll see how the control holds up once he gets some tiredness in that arm though.

Picked him up, but am not planning on having him pitch in Philly tomorrow (Roto).

I think I'd be a long way (3 or 4 quality starts) from starting him in roto. He could slaughter your era for a month or more. He's in my starting lineup in h2h, though. Worse he can do is ruin 1 week.

I'm leaning towards starting him against the lefty heavy Phillies' lineup. I don't expect a ton of innings from him before he gets hurt, so might as well get him in there. Hoping he doesn't kill my league best rotor ERA and WHIP.
