It may be that the team was playing the 9th game of a 10 game road trip and showing signs of fatigue as a result. It's also possible that Willians Austudillo is a magical leprechaun and he took his magical lucky charms with him when they sent him to Rochester. I am pretty sure it's one of those two things.

I watched Willians go 3-for-4* in Pawtucket tonight, so I can confirm your hypothesis.

 

* Plus a walk on 4 pitches, his first time up!

"(FSN) showed Eades’ wife in the stands, baby wearing their infant, crying her eyes out at seeing her husband on a major league mound for the first time. Beautiful moment to be able to witness."

Lest we forget, this was the most important moment. Everything else was just a game.

And, second to to a weeping spouse, a professional baseball player bore witness to his guiding faith/philosophy for life. Everything else is just a game.

The underbelly of this rotation still worries me.

3/5 of this starting rotation has shown they have some serious issues. At this point Pineda looks like the 3rd best with Perez and Gibby locked in the battle of the basement. Lord forbid Odorizzi regresses like Perez and Gibby have, or Berrios gets hurt. It's appearing more and more like the Twins are going to have to empty the minor league cupboards before the trade deadline hits in order to make a serious run at the world series. And you know what? Why not? Adding a legitimate starter and 1-2 bullpen arms will be worth every penny the Twins pay.

 

Go get 'em tomorrow Twins, take the series and go .500 on the Cleveland-Detroit part of this roady.

I know this is just a short set back, but the pitching staff we all expected has shown up and it is not pretty.The minor league replacements are not exciting.The rotation is down to two, the bullpen is down to two.What next?

 

I really want a bounceback from all of these pitchers, but this is Detroit - only Baltimore can give pitchers more to celebrate.

 

Our division stinks, but we have to do more and better.Eades is another nice story.How about getting us a quality major league reliever next.We have enough stories for one year.

Has to be noted that Gibson did not follow his regular pre-start game preparation today and instead chose to attend pre-game religious services at the ballpark.How much that hurt the Twins is hard to tell.

According to...??? How do we even know this? Who is talking about this? This sounds more like an unsubstantiated idle rumor than factual data to me. Maybe he attended a service at the ballpark and did his pregame prep. That sounds more likely to me.

Eades was an interesting call up--certainly not the person I was thinking about. Let's see how long he lasts. He has had a good strikeout to BB ratio, but his WHIP/BA against/ERA are nothing to get excited about.

Wes Johnson is a right shoe first and a bacon and eggs guy. He’s also a devout satanist but I’m not sure that part matters.

Gibson gets to two strikes and then nibbles, instead of attacking with a fastball/sinker down in the zone.

 

Good stuff but he's got to be aggressive when he's up in the count.

Yesterday was Saturday, June 8 and it was the 63rd game of the year.The Twins are now 39%of the way through the season and have hit 121 home runs.Out of 59 years, the current team ranks 34th on the all-time list of Twins' home runs in one season and are on a pace to hit 311 home runs this season.

Yes, because attending a religious ceremony at the park is obviously the same thing as leaving the stadium to go have a hotdog at a carnival.
 
Correlation is not causation. Your post says a whole lot about you and virtually nothing about Kyle Gibson.


Sorry but I disagree. A pre-game routine is called that for a reason and it's valid to question whether a change in the routine impacted the performance.

I believe xFIP is the strongest predictor of pitcher success. Here's how the rotation shakes out right now:
3.43 Gibson
4.14 Berrios
4.26 Odorizzi
4.47 Perez
4.76 Pineda

I don't think it's time to panic on Gibson. Prior to this start he went 5 and gave up 1 run to Tampa and the start before that he went 7 and gave up 1 run to the White Sox. Yesterday he didn't have his best control and yet if he didn't hang a slider at a bad time his line would have looked a lot better. When Gibby's good he's really good and when he's bad he still gives the team a chance to win most days. I'm much more concerned with Martin Perez at this point.

I don't think the pitching staff is in decline just being occasionally exposed when a game isn't 8-0 after 3 innings.

Eades was...fine? did a few things well, you hope that maybe his control was down a bit from being over-amped in his MLB debut, and maybe he can be a useful middle inning guy.

 

Magill looks awful right now. I can't say I've ever been much of a fan, but I'm not enjoying being right about him. He's more combustable than Hildenberger was. Yuck.

 

I think Gibson will be fine; the peripherals look pretty good and it won't take much difference to get him back to performing like last season.
