    It is mind blowing the difference in his w/l outings. Twins definitely don't need another inconsistent pitcher. Hopefully he can string some strong starts together before he hits his innings limit.

    Always an excuse. Next year we will read how he did not pitch much in the majors in 2013, and we just need to he patient and wait for 2015 to see the real Gibson.

    He is averaging more walks in his wins than in his losses...? Correct? maybe he is trying to pitch to contact to much in his bad starts and trying to miss bads and get some swing and misses in his good starts? I don't know but it's interesting.

    Actually, according to the numbers in the article, he has a slightly HIGHER walk rate in his wins than in his losses/no-decisions. Strikeout rate is similar too. And he's only allowed 3 HR all year. Hit rate is the only real difference, which obviously leads to more runs and losses.

    And you will see similar splits for just about any player -- for example, Justin Verlander this year has a 2.82 ERA in his wins and a 6.55 ERA is his losses. Joe Mauer hits a lot better in Twins wins than Twins losses too. It's a pretty meaningless split when viewed in the aggregate.

    I guess the frequency of wins (or win-quality games) is probably more important, and to Gibson's credit, 4 of his last 5 starts have been wins, with 2 or fewer runs allowed in each win. Not sure what happened with the 5 walks, but his BB/9 rate is still just 2.9.

    I was at the Red Wings game and watched him pitch. He had a easy 1-2-3 first, struggled in the 2nd to find his command but was average the rest of the game. Needs a bit more fine tuning before he comes up....

    Seriously? The implication of these types of posts aren't just that the Twins are incompetent in their player development, but that they are self-sabotaging. Which is utterly ridiculous.

    I never mentioned the Twins in that post.....no place did I mention the Twins. That post was about people on this board.....not sure why you assumed I was talking about the Twins.

    More name calling, rather than discussing the actual post.......

    And by the way, you were talking about people on the board with your excuses comment, and not about the actual post, so maybe you should do some self reflection rather than pointing fingers.

    I make more positive than negative comments, some people are just obsessed with the ones they view as negative.

    We hear, every day, that certain players need time in MLB, then to be sent down, then to come back up to succeed. Or, that it helps players to get exposure to MLB games, that the 2nd year they are more comfortable. We've heard it on player after player the last couple of years. so maybe I'm just jaded on this topic, maybe I am being a bit negative here, but do you really think it won't come up next year? We won't be reading here that "he only got 5 starts last year, we need to show patience"?

    Maybe I'm wrong, maybe we won't read that. Maybe I should not have assumed that. But every week we read a new reason why people here don't think he should be up yet. And, for those of us that want him up, it's tiresome for a new thread to be created every week explaining why he should not be up.

    It's why I used the word "implication."

    But I was mot implying anything about the twins, that post was about this site, and how every week there is an article, or post, about why Gibson should not be up. It had zero to do with the twins.

    Gibson is at 80 innings pitched. With the Twins stated limit of 130 +/- he has about 8 starts left. If they really want him to see some action at "major league level" time is running out.

    Half good and half bad............ sounds like he would be perfect for the rotation right now....... sure beats mostly bad........ and with a total ERA just over 3, how can that be worse than the 5 and 6's the Twins now sport? Time is running out with the innings limit. This is hard to understand.

    I think Gibson is MLB ready and should've been called up instead of Walters. However, Walters has been decent so I think once the Twinkies are officially out of it they can release Pelfry and finally give Gibson a shot.

    He has been very good to excellent in four out of the last five starts. No Twin starter has been as consistent over the last month. All other measures they can cite constitute double standards. Walks? Look at Deduno.

    On the G&TG Weekly podcast they mentioned that this is the same team that Gibson recently shutout. I think that worth noting, but for a different reason that Gleeman was. Gleeman was implying that since he recently shut them out, this outing is a relative disappoinment (maybe that's too strong of a word).

    I take a different stance. We've been hearing this year, as our super-prospects were tearing up their respective A-ball leagues that it's important for their development to have the pitchers see them for the second time and make adjustments. Only then will we get a true feel for their development.

    Why can't the same go for pitchers? This Toledo team has recently faced Gibson, presumably developed their scouting report on him, more fully, and Gibson was still able to hold them to 1 run over 7 innings. Perhaps Gibson was able to get the Mud Hens to chase outside the zone on the first go-around. This game Toledo laid off those pitches and drew some walks, but ultimately Gibson was able to work around those walks and give his team a great chance to win.
