From Tom Verducci
Tampa Bay will try to convince Scott Kazmir to skip the tournament after he pitched through October last year[...]
I'm sure these discussions are going to involve a Pineapple Express DVD, Cheetos, and usage of a private lava lamp. Like it or not, Kazmir is Rays property, and therefore the Rays should have a say in when and what he pitches in. There's no guarantee that his health alters either way, but there's piece of mind in knowing the Rays are the ones controlling his pitch counts, throwing sessions, and warm-up times that Team U.S.A. simply can't match.
