Seattle Mariners: M’s display Fireworks on Friday, but still struggle to get the offense going splitting 2 games vs. Oakland

Games Recap This Fourth of July weekend, the M’s faced the hapless Athletics, pulling a 2-2 record in the four game series. Game 1 was an exercise in futility.  Oakland ‘s Scott Kazmir retired 21 of his first 22 players.  The Mariners mustered a paltry 2 hits in the slaughter. ”He’s become a leader here the last couple years, by performance and in the clubhouse,” Melvin...

Oakland Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir twirls gem

On Thursday night, Oakland Athletics’ pitcher, Scott Kazmir, put his best stuff on display against the Seattle Mariners. Facing the Mariners for the first time in 2015, Kazmir threw eight shutout innings, giving up only two hits and no walks while striking out seven. Kazmir lowered his season earned run average to 2.56 and WHIP (walks plus hits per inning pitched) to 1.12. Kazmir...

Oakland A’s trade rumors: Scott Kazmir edition

The Oakland A’s don’t want to move him, and he doesn’t want to be moved, but a trade of Scott Kazmir appears imminent. With the A’s struggling at 34-44 and Kazmir being in the last year of his two season contract, it would be unlike Billy Beane to keep Kazmir rather than receive maximum value with a trade. Kazmir’s value couldn’t be much higher than it is now. Normally...

Kazmir on A's and trade rumors: 'I would love to stay here'

The Oakland Athletics followed up a five-game winning streak by allowing themselves to get swept by the visiting Kansas City Royals this past weekend, bumping them back down to 10 games under .500 at 34-44 entering play Monday.  Their continued inconsistency has fueled trade speculation for their veteran players, among them free-agent-to-be Scott Kazmir. Despite the trade buzz,...

A’s Should Trade Kazmir Sooner Rather Than Later

It’s no secret that Scott Kazmir is one of 2015’s top mid-season trade chips. Though the deadline is still a little over a month away, the Oakland A’s could reap better rewards if they move their starter now instead of waiting until July 31. This latest series sweep at the hands of the Royals serves as a reminder that, while the A’s are capable of stringing together successes...

Los Angeles Dodgers trade rumors: Scott Kazmir edition

If the Los Angeles Dodgers don’t go after Johnny Cueto, which I wrote about last week, Scott Kazmir could be another inexpensive option at the trade deadline. Kazmir, like Cueto, will also be a free agent at the end of the year. He likely won’t be as expensive as Cueto, who shouldn’t be too expensive in the first place. However, Kazmir is still a really solid option for the...

Pittsburgh Pirates trade rumors: Scott Kazmir edition

It has been apparent for some time now that the Pittsburgh Pirates are in need of a more consistent and reliable 5th starter for their rotation. Last night’s game solidified this as Jeff Locke was once again highly ineffective and couldn’t get past the 4th inning. While the top three pitchers of this rotation, Gerrit Cole, Francisco Liriano and A.J. Burnett all have been pretty...

Chicago Cubs trade rumors: Scott Kazmir edition

With a 17-0 dominant win Wednesday night, the Chicago Cubs moved to 35-28 overall and hold a 1.5 game lead for the second wild-card spot. The Cubbies have had their share of up and downs this season, but seem to be finding their stride as of late. The team has gone back to being on the winning side of one run ball games and the bullpen has returned to form so it looks like they...
