Kazmir has been pitching real well since being promoted to AA. Here's a small article about his last outing.
From the Hartford Courant:
Scott Kazmir allowed one run on five hits in seven innings, and the Binghamton Mets ended the Rock Cats' six-game winning streak with a 5-2 victory Sunday in Binghamton, N.Y.
Kazmir (2-1) walked two and struck out seven.
The Rock Cats' Colby Miller (2-4) allowed five runs and six hits in six innings.
Garrett Jones had an RBI single in the sixth and Tommy Watkins a sacrifice fly in the ninth for the Rock Cats.
The Mets scored two in the fifth on Javier Cardona's sacrifice fly and Dave Detienne's RBI single. They took a 3-1 lead in the sixth on Josh Pressley's RBI double. Pressley and Chase Lambin, who was intentionally walked, scored on Chris Basak's double.
Navigators 3, Sea Dogs 1: Josh Habel (4-8) allowed three singles and a run in six innings as Norwich won in Portland, Maine. Chris Curry had a two-run single in the first.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
That is just idiotic. They need to realize that this is not a championship caliber team THIS year and shouldn't waste their young talent on iffy pitchers like Benson and Zambrano.
Those guys aren't even strikeout pitchers, which I think the Mets desperately need. The Mets may have a top ERA but they're one the worst in K's which is very important as well as a low ERA. Our pitchers can't afford to keep leaving the game in the 5th, 6th inning since batters get so much conact of them.
