It has to be the walks. That's the only explanation that really makes sense. the twins philosophy is really against walking guys, and Slama has put a few guys on that way. I agree, he hasn't really gotten the chance his stats have suggested he deserves.
And that explanation would be fine if they wouldn't have spent the last two-plus years signing and claiming guys who throw hard, yet walk even more. Guys like Esmerling Vasquez, Lester Oliveros, Jim Hoey are just some of the examples. It goes back to Juan Morillo. That's why it's surprising to me that a guy who is putting up the types of numbers that one would hope from those flame-throwers isn't given a longer look.
