    He has always been one of, if not the, most thrown-out on the bases guys in baseball, unless I am totally mistaken.

    I am not defending the 3B coach or anything, but aggressive baserunning is a necessity at times, just depends on the situation.

    You were certainly defending earlier in the year when I told you Pettis was trash and would cost us games.

    To be honest, I haven't watched him more than 5 or so starts the past couple of years, but I really like how Kazmir pitches. He "pitches", always has an idea of how to attack guys.

    I would pay good money to listen to him and Keuchel talk video and scouting and pitching for an hour.

    He throws an easy 93, before he could do it easily at 96-97. The change up is very good. Curve is not bad, but he does not throw it much.

    He is one of my favorite pitchers. Tough to run against him.

    Katz seems to be battling some sort of leg cramp right now.

    He deserves his success.

    He was unbelievably dominant in high school. He had an exceptional, drafted high... Got a lot of attention going to the Mets... Fell into some bad habits, didn't work as hard as he could have.... Goes to Tampa and looks like he is going to be a stud... Then gets hurts, literally cannot even get a minor league gig in his 20's.... Most guys quit at this point

    He started working harder, signed in Sugar Land... Learned to PITCH and not throw, even without his best pitch.... Climbed his way back to get a 3/45 deal with Oakland... Became one of the best pitchers in baseball and pitching for his home team.
