I get the desire to just to toss him aside. Lynn hasn't been good. However... it happens and like Dantes said a few posts ago. It could be something mechanical.
All in All, this type of stuff happens.
Toronto is probably a little concerned about Marcus Stroman right now.
Kansas City is bummed about Danny Duffy right now.
The Dodgers are wondering about Rich Hill right now.
The Giants are not in love with what Jeff Samardzija is doing right now.
The Yankees were expecting a lot more out of Sonny Gray.
Matt Moore in Texas, Lucas Giolito in Chicago, Mike Leake and King Felix in Seattle, Matt Harvey and Luis Castillo in Cincinnati, David Price in Boston and Jordan Zimmerman ever since he landed in Detroit.
Plus a couple of guys that I would have loved to see the Twins acquire this off-season... Chris Archer and Yu Darvish.
All of these above names had much higher expectations.
It happens and it's happening to Lance Lynn Right now. The only one on the above list that was released was Matt Harvey and the Reds were quick to step up and trade for him.
The Majority of above guys... if they were released based on current performance. We'd have some Twins Daily members saying "Pick Them Up" but because Lance Lynn is melting in front of our eyes and melting while competing for our team, we tend to get pissed and then we have some who want to release him pronto.
It happens... Patience, keep working with him. There is a difference between fixable and broken beyond repair. If he is broken beyond repair... the Twins will say goodbye.
