Jason Marquis was real impressive last night!! The Twins have the worst pitching staff and bullpen in MLB. He was brought here because the front office was too CHEAP to sign anybody good. Wake up people the Pohlad family has decided to turn its back on the real fans who support the club. Target Field will be like a ghost town soon if management does not do something to fix this mess. Another 95 loss season blamed on injuries and young players. Sometimes the truth can be painful but it's still the truth.
I spend a lot of time watching the various Teams down here in Fla. The first outing and for that matter most of the early Spring outings for veteran pitchers mean nothing! You have no idea what these guys are working on. For example there are guys that go out with sole purpose of spotting specific pitches. After 10-12 years in the bigs they don't care about the score of a meaningless ST game. Only fans with "Cabin Fever" do! I've watched the best pitchers in the game go in and work on their change and it gets taken yard by some AA guy that may never sniff the show. They don't care! They are working on speciifc things not blowing some stiff off the plate with their 3-best pitches. REMEMBER these games aren't REAL! It could be that Marquis will suck in the A.L. but we won't know that for 3-months. However, I do agree with the other posters that he is SO Slow. He could get away with that in the N.L. because he can flat out rake at the plate, but one of my favorite sayings from playing and coaching this game does apply here: "If you are going to be ineffective, at least be quick about it!"

We just have to stop giving up the power positions for Gardy's irrational fear of being withpout a DH. Or, at least carry someone who can hit their weight!
I agree. With two catchers, your pitchers might get 10 AB's per season. Running Butera out there every 4 days is like giving your pitchers 160 AB per season. (Last year - 254 PA, .167 BA, .449 OPS - the pitcher would have to work hard to be worse than that.)
