Astros acquire LHP Scott Kazmir from Oakland

Recommended Posts

Ken Rosenthal ‏@Ken_Rosenthal 46s46 seconds ago

#Astros preferred rental due to lower acquisition cost. Still positioned to make another move, perhaps for a bat.



Sounds like Stros aren't done


Any Astros prospect experts in here?  Good value for A's?  Bad trade?


Neither of the guys they traded are any of their premium prospects, though the C prospect looks like he could become a solid player

Is it me or does this not feel like it should worry us? We always light up Kazmir and he definitely not the type of player that makes you the division favorite.


He beat us the last time we faced him, on June 21st.

7.1 IP, 1 ER


And his three starts in July:

19.1 IP, 0.47 ERA. Looking good lately.

Steve beat me to the punch, but I wasn't thinking about AO, just the knuckleheads on here that truly believe that Kazmir sucking for us was somehow coaching related.


Whereas pitchers like Fernando Rodney openly blamed Butcher, young pitchers like Skaggs and Heaney have actually Butcher unprompted endorsements in the media. Now I'm not as sure which narrative to believe.
