Happy holidays OH friends!

Sorry if this has already been posted, but saw this on MLBTradeRumors:

Kazmir already has multiple three-year offers with guarantees in the range of $12MM to $13MM annually, per the report, with teams like the Athletics, Orioles, and Dodgers said to be involved. It seems like the first legitimate four-year offer could land Kazmir, Heyman adds. Of course, it?s unclear if the A?s will still be in the hunt if and when their reported one-year deal with righty Henderson Alvarez is finalized.

I don't know about you, but I'd rather have Kazmir who won't cost a pick and fits a need as a lefty over Gallardo and a pick. Get it done DD!

PS- Can someone set up a poll for Kazmir vs Gallardo? I'm not sure how its done :rolleyestf:

Kazmir had one good half season and you want to sign him to 4 years. No thanks.

Remember the last guy we traded for who had one good half season.... How'd that go!!!???

2013: 4.04 ERA 158 IP 162 SO

2014: 3.55 ERA 190 IP 164 SO

2015: 3.10 ERA (including his end of the season nose dive) 183 IP 155 SO

Not doubting you at all sir but where did you get this information? I would love Kazmir in an O's uniform (not for 4 years though).

The window is three years, 2016-2018. Then, Manny, Jones, Duquette, and Showalter leave. The rebuild begins after that season or at the deadline (if we're out of it). The fourth year doesn't matter.

Why doesn't it?

I'm skeptical of said window...even if you are correct the 4th year matters.

Wasn't the window supposed to close this year...?

Kazmir looks like a reinvented pitcher to me -- I think we can expect something like 2014 (3.55 ERA, 105 ERA+, 1.161 WHIP) except with a few more home runs given up in Camden. In other words, Wei-Yin Chen.

I like that he has no pick attached, and I also like that he has experience in the AL East pitching for Tampa for almost six years. He very well may be the best option available - everyone left has some sort of question mark.

It's pretty obvious that even with a Kazmir or similar signing, we're going to need to see improvement from Gausman, similar play from 2015 Jimenez and bounce back years from Tillman and Gonzalez. That's just the way it is. Thankfully players of appropriate age fluctuate in performance all the time.

    • The media has been absolute insane over everything, including the damn number thing. I thought it was funny when Holliday said the right things about Cal Sr. and his Dad, then when continued to be pressed by the press' infatuation with getting his opinion on wearing the #7, he finally told them, "I just wear whatever number they give me!"  That was one of the best passive aggressive responses I've seen to a press corp that can't seem to get enough of what number he's wearing.
    • Not too worried about it.  Matt Holliday went 0 for 7 in his first two major league games.  He knows it’s not easy.   He did go 3 for 3 in his third game, so he can give his son grief now.    
    • I don't know about that. They can't hard throwing lefties either!
    • Matt looked pretty sour last night sitting there in the freezing rain waiting for his kid to get his first hit. But as a parent there is no way you're going to miss that moment.
    • Right on the mark. Good synopsis. And Peralta was absolutely dealing last night too making everyone look bad. That slider was insane.
    • I don't see him seeking out interviews. Like any Dad, he's here to support his son with his family. It's ashamed Jackson has struggled. It's ashamed that every at bat they show his family waiting nervously for him to get off the snide. But, he's a very popular player already who the Orioles decided to give away his t-shirt before he took a major league at bat in Camden Yards. Everything is magnified right now and if anything, I feel bad for his family because they have to hold their disappointment in because they know the cameras are on them at all time. Nobody feels worse for Jackson than his family.  
    • It's unclear what caused the BS between McCann and Adames. I think what Contreras did may be a part of it because McCann was talking to him as well. The way Contreras came out of the dungout when it all started was like a guy who instigated some garbage and wanted to get into the mess, but that's just my own speculation. Hyde said after the game he was going to keep the reason for the beef in house.
