Assuming tonights game is cancelled and they only play 1 tomorrow. Who pitches on Thursday/Friday? Correia will pitch tomorrow. Then do you just go right back to Worley and Diamond to keep them on track since they are pitching well?

I wonder what the long term problems of full time interleague play will be under the new schedule.

If the Twins miss a White Sox game, no big deal. They play 19 times. Even making a game up against the Angels isn't a huge deal, as the teams often play multiple series against each other (though not always at each home park).

But making up games against the Mets and Marlins is much harder and the more interleague teams play each other in April, the more likely it is they'll have scheduling problems.

No big suprise, game postponded until tomorrow. Game that was scheduled for 12:10 will now start at 1:10 and the make-up game will be at 7:10.

Monday night's game between the Twins and Marlins has been postponed due to a Minnesota snowstorm.

Kevin Correia was scheduled to start for the Twins and Ricky Nolasco was supposed to be on the bump for the Marlins. The two teams are going to try to fit in a day-night doubleheader on Tuesday at Target Field, but the forecast currently calls for more wintry weather.

You'd think they would want to get in both games as quickly as possible during the day.

they probably need time to clear off some seating sections. Is MLB scaling back Interleague play? This is only a 2 game series.
Also, I wonder what game FSN is going to carry? the tv schedule says they were to carry the one tonight and no tv for the Tuesday noon game.

The forecast I have read says cold but no precipitation tomorrow. High in the lower forties. It won't be great, but the Twins should get the games in. They may have moved the start back because it won't be a "getaway game" for the Marlins, just a guess.

It seems as though there are scheduling problems fairly often towards the end of the year due to make up games... I kind of wonder if they shouldn't pad the schedule by a few days and add a few off days during Aug/Sept for that purpose.

I don't understand how pitchers are not aggressive with that guy.

I have to guess that the early "book" on Hicks is to let him get himself out, by not giving him anything to hit with two strikes. The last three games give some (SSS) evidence he's adjusted, and it may be a little while yet until the pitchers adjust too. Then I hope he adjusts again, and whacks the smack out of the balls they lay in there.

Justin started out well then has been scuffling the past 10 games. Hope it's just one of those things. Have they been facing more lefties than usual? He's still got that obnoxious L/R split.

Is it laying off them, or just not being able to hit and therefor not swinging the bat? Pretty stupid to me that he keeps getting walked.

I've thought the same thing. You don't get the same excitement when he comes up with guys on base like you used to. More the slight fear he is going to jut swing really hard and just sky a pop up or strike out on junk out of the zone.

ashburyjohn
04-23-2013, 02:14 PM
Pretty stupid to me that he keeps getting walked.

Over the course of a season, the difference between players with the most/fewest walks is greater for batters than for pitchers. And through the minors batting-eye has always been part of Hicks's game. No reason to think he's not adjusting to what major league pitchers are capable of showing him on 1-2 and 2-2 and even 3-2.

I'm only seeing this on a gamecast but is Correia coming out after seven innings with a pitch count of 87 a reactionary move to the heat Gardy took last time he went out for the 8th?

Because last time, I think it was nearly unanimous that most agreed Correia should have gone out for the 8th, he simply should have been pulled with runners on.

No matter what happens, I have no problem with Corriea coming out after 7, and Burton coming in. We don't know why Corriea was taken out, and the problems are on Burton, not Gardy.
Gardy has been known to leave his starters in one too many innings.

Re: Correia

I have no problem sending him out to start the 8th, but you have to have guys warming up in the bullpen incase KC hits trouble. That was the issue in his start against the royals. Gardy didn't have anyone warming up

Glad we got out of that with the lead. I'll repeat: IMO there's no reason to jump on Gardy for putting Burton into the role he's there for. And I would have felt that way no matter the result. I would have been OK with Corriea coming out for the 8th, too, for that matter, as long as the pen was ready. Either move makes sense to me, and I also repeat: we don't know if Correia said he was done, or if Gardy/Anderson noticed something about his pitching prior to taking him out.

It's interesting that he used to take more heat for leaving the youngsters in too long. Now he seems to have a quicker hook, including tha veterans.

My guess is Gardy is thinking "get the one win now" instead of saving Burton/Perkins in case they might be needed tonight.

You may be right. Correia may have said something, Andy or Gardy might have picked something up in his delivery, but you can't argue with Correia sitting down the last eight batters he faced, without a ball getting out of the infield. By all appearances, Correia was on a roll.

I was late to the party in thinking Perkins would be good in this role. Striking out the side? Yeah, that's pretty good.

Commandments have been broken on account of her, I'm pretty sure; maybe some laws in certain states.

Second baseman done good too.Yes, I've been defending Dozier at another site and also in middle infield discussion here. He certainly seems to have found his comfort zone in the field and perhaps in the lineup. It would be interesting if the Twins found their leadoff hitter by accident.

Dickbert just chatted about how Marlins ownership made Redmond switch Fernandez and Nolasco. What's that all about? Will Nolasco really draw better primetime ratings er something?

that was a odd tangent Bert was on. Its like he was telling stories that are normally 'off the record' or without names or anything.
Good for Mike Redmond getting a managers job, but it sucks that he has to take gameday orders from Jeff Loria.
