Kazmir Still Thinks He's Just Unlucky
"I feel like I was throwing the ball well," Kazmir said. "The [three] walks, I didn't particularly like, but I thought I was attacking the strike zone. A couple of things didn't go my way, and it kind of snowballed on me."The article speculates that the Angels might convert Hisanori Takahashi to starting, a potentially catastrophic decision, as Takahashi was 4-4 with a 5.01 ERA in that capacity last year with the Mets.
"My slider felt great, and my fastball had a downward tilt to it," Kazmir said. "But they put some good swings on it. That's baseball. No matter how you feel, you've got to have some luck on your side."
