He is clearly trying to perfect the "effectively wild" thing that Dick always talks about...


I'm willing to give him a few more starts but his control is problematic. He gotta straighten out before you can even consider him for the future.

But... they don't.

No, it IS co-ed softball

Methinks Suzuki should be catching right now.

I recently attempted to calculate WAR in the NFL over on Purple Pain forums. Click here to check out my article.

He's giving up a heck of a lot of walks for someone you characterize as pitch-to-contact.

Let me rephrase...when did May become a guy who throws 90-92, like the rest of our pitch-to-contact, non K'ing staff?

If we are going to be serious...I will say, this is ridiculous. A professional pitcher should be able to throw a few strikes here and there.

Pretty sure the pitcher was supposed to cover home on a throw from the outfield then!

I don't mean to be politically insensitive, but watching Twins sometimes is like watching a botched execution. Not something you want to see, but until they pull the curtain you can't turn away.

Deduno has more control right now.

Umpires are against us again. Probably be in first place without all the bad calls.

Anyone want to guess what Gardy is doing right now?

3rd time thru the batting order. May is his own worst inning. Only 1 93mph pitch, I think.Whats so special about him ?

He is smoking a cigarette and playing with a kitten.

Agreed.  You can't have that many walks in your 3 appearances and expect to be considered down the line.  The last walk was somewhat questionable with that last pitch but he's not going to get that call when he's all over the place.  He's pitching just like a AAA pitcher would right now.

Nice job Swarzak!Let's get some runs here.

 

If we don't get some runs...Gardy...lit cigarette...kitten...I don't want to think about the implications.
