Castillo, Craig and Kazmir could bolster Red Sox

Considering the widely publicized pitching woes and the unexpectedly anemic offense, it could be worse for the Boston Red Sox. Almost a quarter of the 2015 regular season is complete, and the team favored by many pundits to win the American League East title is 19-20 and 2.5 games behind the New York Yankees. With the trade deadline still more than two months away, and most teams...

How Long Will Beane Give A’s To Turn Around Season Before Next Round of Trades?

It’s early enough in the season that you can make the case that things can still be turned around for the Oakland A’s.  Perhaps a few winning months come along and the Wild Card isn’t such a far-fetched fantasy by the time September rolls around. It’s also late enough in the season to acknowledge that the A’s have dug themselves into a deep enough hole that perhaps the...

It Took 11 Innings, but Sox Took First Game From A’s

The Red Sox headed out on a west coast swing that included a series with the A’s and the Mariners.  The Sox had Rick Porcello on the mound who is the closest thing they have had to an actual ace since the 2015 season began vs. Scott Kazmir.  The score went back and forth all night and ended up going into extra innings.  The Sox were able to take the lead in the top of the 11th...

Video: Twins’ Eddie Rosario homers on first MLB pitch he sees

mlb.com 23-year old Eddie Rosario hit the first Major League pitch he saw for a home run Wednesday night.  Baseball America ranked him as the No. 60 prospect in baseball before last season, but his stock has fallen. He hit .242/.280/.379 with three homers in 23 games for Triple-A Rochester this season before the Twins gave him the call. Scott Kazmir threw Rosario a first pitch...

Athletics-Rangers Preview

Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin elected to give Scott Kazmir an extra day of rest, and given the lineup he'll now face, he still might not have to overexert himself. The in-form left-hander takes the mound Friday night as the Athletics open a three-game road series against the Texas Rangers. Kazmir (2-0, 0.99 ERA) has contributed once already to Texas' futile offense, limiting...

Ricky Romero's release is only the beginning of things to come

Ricky Romero's release as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays is not the end, but only the beginning. I look at it this way. If Scott Kazmir, who was in dire straits and left for dead by the baseball world, can come back and again be considered one of the most effective left-handed pitchers in the game. Romero, who's had a couple rocky years, is in no way done with the game of baseball...

Kazmir throws 7 scoreless innings in A's 5-4 loss to Astros

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Scott Kazmir did everything he could to help the Oakland Athletics except swing the bat. Considering the A's recent offensive struggles, maybe an at-bat would have helped. Kazmir threw seven scoreless innings, but Houston starter Dallas Keuchel did him one better, going nine without giving up a run. Robbie Grossman singled in two runs in the 11th, and the Astros...

WATCH: Royals-A's game filled with more ejections

The Kansas City Royals have a problem with the Oakland Athletics, and one beanball from Yordano Ventura to Brett Lawrie wasn’t going to fix that. In the first inning of Sunday’s game at Kauffman Stadium, Scott Kazmir plunked Lorenzo Cain (it looked accidental since if you’re going to throw at someone, you don’t throw at their feet, but whatever).

Daily DraftKings Picks: Thursday, Apr 9

I re-learned a very valuable lesson yesterday that I’d frankly just forgotten to account for — hitting is hard when it’s cold. On paper the Red Sox looked great against Aaron Harang, but on a cold, windy, rainy/misty day, Harang dominated them. My lineup tanked, only salvaging some semblance of respectability thanks to Scott Kazmir. Wednesday’s Official Lineup (click to...

Fantasy Roundup: Carrasco, Kazmir K 10

Entering this season, few pitchers were as hyped as Carlos Carrasco. His stuff had never been in question — his four-seamer has some heat and his slider is among the best in the league — but for one reason or another it took Carrasco until the 2014 season to put it all together. One start into the 2015 season, it looks like he’s kept it together. Carrasco pitched 6.1 innings...
