Against a tough Toronto lineup, Cleveland started Ryan Merritt in game five of the 2016 ALCS. Four plus shutout innings. Cleveland is where Falvey came from. I thought he or someone in the Twins front office might have an idea or something up their sleeve for this one.
Did you have a better idea than Dobnak?
With Dobnak, I assumed the Twins had a plan. How to pitch to the Yankees with the stuff Dobnak has. “Once through the order” or something, then someone else. The process they used during the season of following one pitcher with another type of pitcher. Or that Dobnak had the best chance out of their six-plus other guys like Smeltzer, Perez, Graterol, Thorpe, whoever.
