Kazmir or Nolasco?

Rate this Entry
Recognizing first the possibility that Kazmir had little interest in joining the Twins vs. A's, I'm wondering what the feeling is out there about Kazmir on a 2/22 vs. Nolasco on a 4/48 contract. Personally, I prefer Kazmir and his contract, since he has more upside and the commitment is shorter. In fact, I'd have gone higher (2/24 or 25) for Kazmir if he really did prefer the A's to see if he might think twice.

    Kazmir all day. I don't blame him for liking the A's though. And a 4 year for Nolasco is going to be too long. They have Billy Beane, and the Twins have Terry Ryan. That's a no brainer. It would be cool to hear Led Zeppelin's Kashmir on the way to the mound........ if he doesn't use it, he should.

    Kazmir will benefit from a great pitching coach in Curt Young. That will make Oakland look like they got a steal. It also might means that Colon is done in Oakland and would be available for a 1 year deal.
    Nolasco vs Kazmir? Coulda, woulda, shoulda. I don't think it was either/or. The better hindsight argument might be should have they spent more moneyon Kazmir rather than sign Hughes as your risk/reward player. I would agree on that.

    I am OK without getting Kazmir. I had not seen a prediction of more than 2 years because of durability questions. I am not sure Twins are contending in next two years. I think he is a better fit for Oakland than Nolasco would be. But for the Twins I like Nolasco. Only time will tell.

    i would rather have the Kazmir contract then Nolasco. But I dont think thats a fair question. i think the real question is whether i would rather have the Hughes contract or Kazmir. And i would rather have Hughes

    Kaz over either of the pitchers we got.

    That said, I am really pleased that the Twins have done something that is almost certainly going to lead to a better season than we have had the last 3 years.
