With the Winter Meetings ready to kick in to high gear, Scott Kazmir couldn’t ask for a better time to have the best start since he began the Winter League part of his comeback.  There are some considerable talks going on according to Buster Olney, who tweeted that interest is high since Friday’s development.  “Teams have already shown interest in Scott Kazmir, and that probably will be heightened by his strong outing Friday. http://mlb.mlb.com/milb/stats/stats.jsp?gid=2012_11_30_carwin_ponwin_1&t=g_box&sid=l133 …”  As mentioned, Kazmir put on quite a show. In six innings he gave up one run, on six hits and struck out seven. The biggest positive, something I know that not only stands out to me but to others, is the one walk.  For Kazmir to be successful he needs to be able to throw strikes and get people out-know one doubts the obvious. Yet in a game with suspicions, disgruntled fans, an upcoming HOF debate that will sure rile up some feathers and other issues clouding what’s on the field, Kazmir’s heart and determination should count for something.
