Kazmir hitting 94-96 mph today on his fastball. The first start was 89-92, last start was 91-93... now he is up to full strength it looks like and was electric in the first inning. Hopefully that continues!

A-Gone the Conqueror has been quite proficient. 5 HR thus far this season and he's been raking particularly in this Arizona series.

Oh, and this should be Corey Kluber's theme song this season.

I assume Trout was pulled due to the large lead?

Kazmir was dominant but was pulled a little early and shown in the dugout holding his left forearm with the trainer.... figures. Hopefully it's nothing, Kazmir was also shown smiling in the dugout. I hate injuries to anybody, but Kazmir is the only guy I own in every single league. I hope he's ok!

Not watching the Angels game but yeah, I think so.

Anyhow, I wished I had more faith in Dee Gordon going into this season. He added a bit more bulk this year and he's hitting into less popups. It's still early to say if he can remain productive, but he's pretty much doing so far what was expected of Billy Hamilton. 4 SB day today.

I thought of this today too. :-b

In all seriousness, I could see him bouncing back from a lackluster couple of seasons and returning to fantasy elite status this year. Potentially great lineup.

Also... you guys can have your $20 Billy Hamilton, I'll take my $1 Dee Gordon. B-)
