Daily Links for the LA Angels including Kazmir finally gets released, Weaver's high pitch counts shouldn't be cause for concern, ESPN calls the Halos the fourth best franchise in sports and much more...
The Story: The Angels finally released Scott Kazmir.
The Monkey Says: This has been inevitable since last year, really. The Halos gave Kazmir every chance to keep his job, but things just kept getting worse for him. His acquisition will no doubt go down in Angel history as one of the worst ever, but I'll be taking a look later today on just how bad it really was.
The Monkey Says: It really is staggering how fast Kazmir went from very good to absolutely miserable. Hopefully he can catch on with a pitching guru like Dave Duncan in St. Louis and salvage his career since he is still plenty young enough to have a quality career.
