There's an article in the Post about Scott Kazmir's attempted comeback with the Indians. I was wondering why the Mets didn't try to sign him to a minor league contract like the Indians, considering it would at leasts be a small pr coup and an attempt to undue one of the worst trades in Mets history.
Kazmir says a couple of minor injuries caused him to stop using his legs and that he "forgot" how to pitch. He has stunk the last couple of seasons. However, the article says he was throwing 94-95 mph, and striking guys out in Puerto Rican winter ball, though his ERA was still over 4. He claims to have developed his secondary pitches. He's still a lefty. I wonder why the brain trust didn't give him a MiLB contract and invite. Maybe going back to where he was originally successful in the minors would help. The experience he has had is surely humbling and Leiter and Franco are long gone.
