Of course, it was the wind that was to blame for Worley's bad outing....

Hey, he felt good... I remember something about him "feeling good" all year in 2013 too.
Do or do not. There is no try.

He said the wind was affecting how his pitches moved. Were you there to see it? Do you know his pitches well enough to say he is lying?

Even, on the remote chance, that it is true....you still don't say that. You just don't.

Fortunately the Twins play in a dome so this won't be an issue come the regular season. :/

I don't see a problem with it. That's the excuse I use when my performance is substandard at my job (Mall Restroom Cleaning Specialist).

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

I wasn't there, but I know excuses well enough to say that this was a pathetic cry for help.

Just for saying something that stupid, I'd trade him to the Cubs or White Sox and let him try his luck in the Windy City.

I also blame the wind last spring for making Hicks look better then he was at the time. (Hence the Homeruns)

Wow, we must have had a huge wind storm in the first month of the season last year. Poor, poor Vance. I hope the wind brings him a nice crisp ticket out of Minnesota

We traded Ben Revere for this guy? Didn't people say at the time, with a straight face, that the Phillies needed a centerfielder so they "overpaid" to get Revere?

Worley's 2013 WAR (baseball-reference version) -1.2.

Revere for May is still a good trade IMO.
