Scott Kazmir is toast

CBS’ Danny Knobler spoke with a scout who said this about Angels’ starter Scott Kazmir, who gave up five runs in an inning and a third over the weekend:

“Terrible. No velocity. No command. No nothing”

Quit beatin’ around the bush, man, tell me: how’s he doing?

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a starting pitcher fall off the table so quickly. And while, on some level, this may help make Mets fans a bit better about the famous Kazmir-for-Zambrano trade, no one should feel good about this.  But of course, baseball goes on, and if the Angels are going to go on with any kind of hope, they need to either demote, DL or dump Kazmir and throw Hisanori Takahashi or someone into the rotation.
