Great stuff... He can throw...struggles with pitching. Throwing... Check... The art of pitching is the sticky point.

Seriously... Doesn't Mastrionni deserve more playing time. Span and Revere can sit a little bit more to accommodate. A game at 2B every once in awhile.

The guy can play.

I don't know of you can use the Pitch word yet. But... I'm sitting here laughing watching him do what he does. Loving it.

As I said in a game thread a couple starts ago, he's not your typical no-stuff, "control-type" Twins pitcher.

I still don't trust him as far as I could throw him, and don't want any part of having him be one of the Twins first five starters in 2013, but he's tantalizing, frustrating, and fun to watch all at the same time.

Well said, but a little pessimistic. I am hoping that he can win 15 games next year for the Twins.

Im optimistic... If he can figure out his feet and release point. It could change and change nicely. He's kinda long in the tooth and if he hasn't learned by now. But maybe he's at the point now where he has tasted it and takes fixing it more seriously.
