Tonight only! Kazmir Kazmir Kazmir!
If you’ve been slacking off on your Mariner-watching lately, what with the Olympics and all (and I have greatly mixed feelings about the Olympics, but that’s beside the point) , tonight’s a good one to tune into, even if only for the first couple of innings. We get young super-prospect Kazmir starting for the Devil Rays, who stink in an entirely different way than the M’s do, and Madritsch for us. Now, did the Mets abandon Kazmir because Rick Peterson saw something in him that doomed his chances for future success? I’m looking forward to going to the game tonight, and I’ll be honest — that hasn’t been the case for many matchups this year.
