Check out his stats versus teams other than the Twins. They're not good, as the Twins were 20% of his starts.

I would prefer Josh Johnson, but Kazmir is a second choice as long as it is not more than a 2 year contract.

It's true, Kazmir dominated the Twins last year. But I still want him. He's a good fit, and yes, whoever gets him him will have to pay at least 10-mil per year, maybe as much as 12-mil for 2 or 3 years. Tanaka should be the #1 target, but the bidding for him may get ridiculous. Kazmir, Hughes and someone like Johan, J. Johnson or Colby Lewis as the third signing. I don't mind 3 year deals. You can never have too much pitching, we could spin guys off to contenders at the deadline year by year, and guys get hurt.
Kazmir---3 years 36 million (don't get outbid,
Hughes---3 years 25 million
Johan et al---1 year 7 million
This changes somewhat if we make a trade for someone like "Shark" Bailey, Anderson, etc...
Bottom line...we need pitching and have some money to spend. Get at it.
