Jason Babin voided the final two years of his Jacksonville Jaguars contract and is now a free agent.
The Jaguars were hoping to restructure Babin's deal but he was not that interested in staying in Jacksonville for another season. Babin basically told the Jags I don't want your money, I'm out of here. He was still due $6 million in each of the next two seasons. The 33-year-old will be looked at as a situational pass rusher on the open market. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Scott Kazmir allowed three runs on five hits with four strikeouts and one walk over 5 1/3 innings against the Royals on Friday in Game 2 of the ALDS.
Although far from dominant, Kazmir was solid tonight in his first postseason start since 2009. It was a positive sign for Astros fans, as Kazmir had been very bad lately, posting a 5.89 ERA over his last nine starts. But his success against the Royals came into play tonight – coming into Game 2, Kazmir was 1-1 with a 2.10 ERA and 14:3 K/BB ratio against Kansas City over 21 1/3 innings. This could be a crucial line if the series ends up going the distance. With the Astros trotting out Dallas Keuchel in Game 3 and Collin McHugh in Game 4, Kazmir will need to step up in a huge role in a potential Game 5 scenario. Even though that game would be played in Kansas City – we obviously know how electric the atmosphere would be in an elimination game at Kauffman Stadium – Kazmir would be a hot play in DFS leagues with his outstanding numbers against the Royals.
