DateQuestionAnswer
2015-06-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think the A's end up getting for Kazmir?
(Chipshot212 from MA)
He's in the last year of his deal, so it's a two month rental, which means not much. If the A's can get one usable piece for the future for him, that's win. Gone of the days of teams acquiring, well, Scott Kazmir, for two months of Victor Zambrano. Teams are much smarter about their future assets than they used to be. Still, he could be a difference maker for a team down the stretch and there should be multiple suitors, so it could be a decent piece. (Jeff Moore)
