Kaz over either of the pitchers we got.
That said, I am really pleased that the Twins have done something that is almost certainly going to lead to a better season than we have had the last 3 years.
Go Ricky! Go Phil!
i would rather have the Kazmir contract then Nolasco. But I dont think thats a fair question. i think the real question is whether i would rather have the Hughes contract or Kazmir. And i would rather have Hughes
I am OK without getting Kazmir. I had not seen a prediction of more than 2 years because of durability questions. I am not sure Twins are contending in next two years. I think he is a better fit for Oakland than Nolasco would be. But for the Twins I like Nolasco. Only time will tell.
Kazmir will benefit from a great pitching coach in Curt Young. That will make Oakland look like they got a steal. It also might means that Colon is done in Oakland and would be available for a 1 year deal.
Nolasco vs Kazmir? Coulda, woulda, shoulda. I don't think it was either/or. The better hindsight argument might be should have they spent more moneyon Kazmir rather than sign Hughes as your risk/reward player. I would agree on that.
Kazmir all day. I don't blame him for liking the A's though. And a 4 year for Nolasco is going to be too long. They have Billy Beane, and the Twins have Terry Ryan. That's a no brainer. It would be cool to hear Led Zeppelin's Kashmir on the way to the mound........ if he doesn't use it, he should.
