Maybe I am just a blind homer but I have to believe J.D. and Peterson knew something. Maybe with a whole lot of luck Benson will become like Schmidt and Zambrano will pitch like Carlos.
Did JD, Howe, or Peterson say that there was something wrong with Kazmir? This is the first time I'm hearing something like this.
I like the Benson deal. Didn't have to deal David Wright to get him. It's sad to see Wiggy go, I love the way he played, but it wasn't gonna last forever with him.
Zambrano deal, still very iffy. I just don't like the idea of giving up such a big LEFTY prospect for a guy who needs help with walking the whole damn ballpark. I feel they could have done better with a guy like Kazmir. Nonetheless, Zambrano can develop into something good. Dude has a winning career record with Tampa Bay. That has to mean something, also has some good stuff.
We shall wait and see. JD is about to come on WFAN to answer some questions, this should be interesting.
