Did you guys watch the same Sam Deduno I did? This guy is dominant, has phenomenal stuff, yes he is going to walk lots of people, but this also makes him virtually unhittable....the real problem with Deduno is that he might also be uncatchable, I know the catchers hate to catch him, that is a GREAT! sign...
Get over yourselves...Deduno does not fit the mold of the "Traditional" pitcher and there in lies the problem, the Twins staff and evidently fans, get hung up on the traditional but you can not apply that to Deduno...he is not tradiional...the guy is a great pitcher who can beat anybody, anytime, and he can lose to anybody anytime too..I get that...
Lets not make the same mistake we made with Cy Knuckles...ok?
Deduno is better than any pitcher we have added with the possible exception of Worley who has major question marks...if we are not going to compete
in 2013 let Deduno work out the kinks, the most exciting pitcher in baseball
This quote just kills me, " It was quite clear last year that none of those players had what it took to start in the majors" Go back and watch Deduno dominate and then tell me this again.
