KING KAZMIR

Nasty slider. Filthy fastball. Wicked change up. 2 hits. A complete game. That spells All Star pitcher Scott Kazmir, all of 22 years old. With a now 5-2 record against the Red Sox, with an ERA of 2.60, he was king for the night, unbeatable in his home park. It was one of those games where you just have to tip your hat and come out this afternoon and get them back. I have no idea what the Mets were thinking when they dealt this guy away. Loony tunes or something.
Josh Beckett had a quality outing, giving up 3 solo homers in 7 innings. It would not have mattered if he had allowed only one, for the Sox were not going to score any runs, not against the Scott Kazmir of last night.
The Yanks and the Jays also lost, so the division looks the same, and so does our slim cushion of a lead. Curt goes tonight, and then on Sunday, when he has the chance to show Ozzie Guillen that he made a mistake in not choosing him for the All Star Game. But that is Sunday night. This afternoon, we have to beat Tampa Bay, and we have the man who can do it on the hill. Schill.

And that was the type of game that no way, no how, Kazmir loses. And he deserves it. And by the way, those are the easiest losses for me to take. Having a 50-30 record might help a little.......a little!

when this kid comes up for free agency (not sure when that is though), no way will Tampa shell out the cash that he is worth. i live down here & i know that there is no way they gave the revenue to hang onto someone of his caliber if he keeps up pitching te way he has. and how much better he might be with a real team behind him! (more on this in my blog shortly)

anyway my point was going to be this: maybe by the time he comes up for free agency, the Sox might consider making him an offer should they still need a strong starter. or would that be too much like NY, buying the players who beat you just so you don't have to keep facing them?? =P

I also don't know when that will be. What I think I know is that he will be the most valuable pitcher in the free agent lineup of whatever year. And huge bucks will follow. And he deserves it. I bet Cyn would know when that time will be. But suiters? He'll have a TON. Thanks for the holiday wishes, Dawn.

Peter, I can tell you why the Mets traded Kazmir. A reliable source, a friend who I trust with a connection into the Mets told me the REAL reason Kazmir was traded, and it's two words: "drug problem."

You see, that's the kind of info you can only find when a bunch of blogger friends exchange info. Remarkable. He hasn't shown it, though. Thanks. Fascinating.
And Dawn, whenever I go on your blog my computer sooner or later (within 5 min) locks up, the last one I didn't know what to do. I had to unplug, and I'm sure I did everything else wrong, but for 40 min, it was deader than a doornail. I somehow found and pressed a hidden under the computer on the botton take off the coverand press with a Phillips screwdriver teeny button. And I made it sound easy, because there was my general panic involved in the equation. And I was shocked that it came on, its familiar whiff of the fan like music to my ears. So I am afraid to go there. For now. I'm almost afraid to turn my favorite Apple off. First time. Holy you-know-what!

you're on a Mac? it's probably my video player. it runs on Windows Media Player & tends to cause trouble for anyone on a Mac. i have a couple of friends on Mac who have asked me to take my music down but...i listen to it while i'm at work & music is such a huge part of who i am that i hate to remove it. they access my blog through Bloglines using the RSS feed & then just email me their comments if they have something to say. sorry i locked up your computer on you...

So Dawn, help me a little. The smelling salts have revived me, and delicate work on a previously unseen unknown button INSIDE my computer, never before seen by my 2 human eyes, is what saved me. But how can I go to your blog without an automatic something kicking in? I am sure it's a great place. And still, that familiar whir of the fan is as comforting as, well, just about anything I can think of. When I pushed the power button, a button, by the way, that has never failed me, I was in shock, which slowly left me able to regain my thought processes enough to know that there was a "power reset" type of "push the red botton and your machine will turn on" type of thingy. And as small as it was, I found it. And I'm hoping never to have to do that again. I had visions of carrying my Mac desktop to the Apple Store tomorrow. SCARY
Again, thanks for your faithful prescence. And comments.
