Today, the Mets signed former top prospect Scott Kazmir (according to Baseball America's Matt Eddy)!
I'm excited about this move for both practical reasons and historical reasons.
It turns out that Matt Eddy was a victim of the Sean Kazmar/Scott Kazmir confusion.
According to http://MLB.com, Mets have signed both minor league SS Sean Kazmar and former top prospect Scott Kazmir to minors deals.
Disregard that last tweet. Misread Kazmar as Kazmir. My apologies.
To reiterate: Scott Kazmir still is a FA. New Met Sean Kazmar is a steady defensive SS who joins O. Quintanilla as depth behind R. Tejada.
My heart has now been broken by Mr. Kazmir twice.
