Scott Kazmir

Just pitched better than Roger Clemens tonight. He can get by with mediocre command because he has superior stuff, but Clemens can't anymore. Kazmir's one of those 'effectively wild' guys - you really never know if the pitch is going to be a strike, so when he does throw one, that extra split-second of doubt causes the hitter to swing late at a (normally hittable) 91 mph fastball.

- I did not get to attend tonight's Trenton Thunder game, featuring Phil Hughes' second rehab start, but I'm holding out hope for tomorrow's (Joba Chamberlain) and Wednesday's (another Hughes start) games. By the way, he dominated: three innings, three hits, no runs, no walks, six strikeouts.
