There are plenty of other guys who threw hard with no control how flamed out, certainly a lot more than the relative few like Kazmir who thrived.
Cain gave up 26 homers last year. That's a lot!
Like the home run for hitters, people get way too drunk with love for guys who can strike people out. I'd much rather have a guy who strikes out fewer batters but has much better peripherals and a better team.

My major point was:
The guy has Reyes and Verlander. Both of them are MUCH better options than Cain.
Much better pitchers on much better teams.
