Kazmir for Zambrano was a non-trade. It's like a Moochie Norris for a Maurice Taylor in the NBA. It doesn't matter and means nothing. Kazmir isn't one of the best pitching prospects in baseball if you look past the prospect time horizon - he is an undersized hurler who has a decent likelihood of breaking down before he puts in even one respectable season. Zambrano just sucks. This is the kind of trade that only matters to worthless teams like Tampa Bay and the Mets who don't have enough W's to spark actual interest.

He's a 21 year old pitcher.

The time horizon is exactly why hes such a good prospect.


And when you look past that....you see great statistics.

There's no reason to see him as anything but a fantastic pitching prospect....certainly worth more than Victor Zambrano.

Not that this has anything to do with the original thread topic, but are you kidding me? A nothing trade? Like it or not, Kazmir IS one of the better pitching prospects in all of baseball.

"he is an undersized hurler who has a decent likelihood of breaking down "

So is Oswalt. So is Hudson. Should I go on?

haha
thats was my point in my post.. most people who support the trade claims he will break down, actually they "know" kaz will break down..

i wont reply to the undersized comment because its not worth it.. we all know how many undersized SPs became great SPs.

Who really wants to talk about Griffey anyway? :-D
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
