  1. Red Sox to interview Rick Peterson for pitching coach job

    Oct 26, 2012, 8:47 PM EDT

    Rick Peterson mullet

    The Red Sox have had mixed results with former A’s coaches of late. On the one hand, there’s Terry Francona and his two World Series titles. On the other hand, there’s Curt Young, who washed out in one year with the team and went right back to his old job as Oakland’s pitching coach this…

  2. Matt Harvey finishes strong, joins elite company before being shut down by Mets

    Sep 20, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Matt Harvey

    Matt Harvey‘s final start of the season was delayed one day by a rain and the Mets rookie tossed seven innings of one-run, one-hit ball against the Phillies last night before being shut down to limit his workload. Harvey finishes with a 2.73 ERA, .200 opponents’ batting average, and 70/26 K/BB ratio in 59 innings,…

  3. Scott Kazmir’s independent league comeback isn’t pretty

    All you need to know about how poorly Scott Kazmir‘s time with the independent league Sugar Land Skeeters is going can be found in the first sentence of this game recap on the team’s official website: Eight walks sounds bad, but there are plenty of positives to be found in Scott Kazmir’s last start. When…

  4. Angels to keep struggling Ervin Santana on “out count”

    Jul 23, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Ervin Santana

    Ervin Santana‘s brutal season continued Saturday, as he failed to make it out of the second inning against the Rangers while serving up three homers and allowing six runs. Santana is now 4-10 with a 6.00 ERA and 23 homers allowed in 111 innings and the Angels are 5-14 when he starts compared to 47-30…

  5. Scott Kazmir’s story keeps getting sadder

    Jul 17, 2012, 5:47 PM EDT

    kazmir-120215.standard[1]

    In the span of four season Scott Kazmir went from 24-year-old All-Star to being out of the big leagues and now pitching for the independent league Sugarland Skeeters. And as Sam Miller of Baseball Prospectus notes, Kazmir can’t even get those hitters out. Yesterday he lasted just one inning, coughing up six runs on six…

  6. Scott Kazmir is playing for the Sugarland Skeeters now

    Jun 19, 2012, 5:27 PM EDT

    Scott Kazmir

    Here’s how far Scott Kazmir‘s star has fallen: Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the two-time All-Star–who’s still just 29 years old–has agreed to a deal with the independent league Sugarland Skeeters. Apparently they play in Houston, which is where Kazmir is from. Kazmir was released by the Angels in June of last year and…

  7. Former Mets GM Jim Duquette is donating a kidney to his daughter

    May 31, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

    Jim Duquette

    Jim Duquette once gave Scott Kazmir to the Rays for Victor Zambrano. But now he’s giving up something even more valuable, and this time not one damn person is going to criticize him for it: Former Mets GM Jim Duquette, who now contributes part time to Mets radio broadcasts, will donate a kidney to his daughter Lindsey in…

  8. HBT Weekend Wrap

    Feb 27, 2012, 9:12 AM EDT

    Weekend

    Haven’t done one of these in a while, but a lot of stuff happened over the weekend for once. And I know a lot of you knuckleheads are too lazy to scroll back, so here’s what you missed: MLB released a statement on the Ryan Braun testing and stuff.  Oh, and the identity of the…

  9. Mets were “unimpressed” by Scott Kazmir during Friday throwing session

    Feb 25, 2012, 5:31 PM EDT

    Scott Kazmir

    Don’t hold your breath for a reunion between the Mets and former top prospect Scott Kazmir. Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that the Mets were “unimpressed” with what they saw during a throwing session yesterday in Houston. One Mets’ source told Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com that it was “fair” to characterize their…

  10. Six clubs are interested in Scott Kazmir for some reason

    Feb 22, 2012, 12:03 PM EDT

    kazmir-120215.standard[1]

    Scott Kazmir threw for scouts the other day. Today Buster Olney reports that as many as six teams are interested in him. The only team mentioned by name is the Mets, but really, it’s hard to see why anyone would be too exercised by the notion of adding Scott Kazmir to the organization.  He’s been…

  11. Scott Kazmir threw for scouts today, clocked in high-80s

    Feb 17, 2012, 3:25 PM EDT

    Scott Kazmir

    Scott Kazmir held a workout for scouts today and Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports that approximately 10 teams sent someone to take a look at him. Kazmir’s fastball was clocked mostly in the high-80s, which is similar to the diminished velocity he’s shown while struggling during the past few seasons. Kazmir is still just 28…

  12. Mets will send scout to watch Scott Kazmir throw

    Feb 16, 2012, 1:48 AM EDT

    kazmir-120215.standard[1]

    Scott Kazmir isn’t getting a lot of attention from teams as he attempts to make a comeback, and understandably so. He hasn’t pitched in the majors since April 3 of last season, when he lasted just 1 2/3 innings and gave up five runs for the Angels. Before that, he had fallen off badly after…

  13. Rockies add an underrated arm in Jeremy Guthrie

    Feb 6, 2012, 6:06 PM EDT

    Jeremy Guthrie

    There’s nothing sexy about a 47-65 career record. Jeremy Guthrie has led the AL in losses twice and in homers allowed once. He’s never won even a dozen games or struck out more than 130 batters in a season. Still, the Rockies should be very happy to have him, especially for the modest price of…

  14. Scott Kazmir probably won’t get an offer from the Marlins

    Dec 7, 2011, 7:33 PM EDT

    Scott Kazmir

    Scott Kazmir, who sat out the rest of the season after being let go by the Angels in June, began his comeback in the Dominican Winter League with an ugly outing Wednesday. He gave up four runs while retiring just one batter for Escogido. Kazmir made only one start (5 ER in 1 2/3 IP)…

  15. If the Rockies want Scott Kazmir, they can probably have him

    Nov 18, 2010, 5:19 PM EDT

    Scott Kazmir

    Buried in the middle of Troy Renck’s latest Rockies notebook in the Denver Post is this sentence, accompanied by no other details: “Colorado also has interest in Angels starter Scott Kazmir, who had a disappointing season.” First, calling what Kazmir did this year “a disappointing season” would be like calling me chubby. He had a…
