Is this game televised?

 

Fs1.

 

 Sleger's really throwing some frisbees out there. I don't know that he'll ever be able to get out MLB batters with this stuff

Maybe now's a good time to mention that I've insisted that Slegers profiles as a long reliever and not even as a 5th starter?
 

Oof, another XBH. We're gonna be seeing Magill pretty soon.

this could be problematic.....OTOH, maybe not. The Twins do seem to hit these bad teams pretty well. Still time for a comeback...

I remain hopeful on Buxton and Sano.....but I'd not bet the franchise on them.

I'd rather watch Dozier than read about some long shot org filler. If they deal him, it better be for something that will help the big club within a year.

Which is reasonable. I couldn't care less about watching him either catch fire finally in a lost season or continue to struggle in a lost season. If they get someone that can help next season, great! If not, it's better than nothing.

4* runs is nothing... may have to get Slegers out of there soon though

This is a prime example of what happens when you just throw FB-FB-FB-FB-FB-FB-FB-FB-FB

 

89-89-89-89-89-89-89-89-89-89

 

Nervous or not you have to mix things up either pitch wise or velocity

 

As I type this 89-89-89-89-89

Yeah. That's his only potential path to the majors. No velocity, no spin, no movement as a starter.

We sent down Romero for this guy? Romero has the way higher ceiling. This season is shot, let the young (actually good) guys play.

If those were called from the bench...or that was the game plan because he's young...that's just dumb

Well, they sent him down for a reliever, then Mejia, then Slegers. But your point is correct, it's time to get him back up here. He'll be better than Odorizzi and Lynn, that's for sure.

 

Oh, and the Royals haven't scored 6 or more runs in a game in the last 30 games?! Holy cow, this team's bad. Too bad we've got to burn our bullpen against them.

He had me fooled after being so effective in relief for 5 innings and then that Orioles start.Just batting practice today.
