Article: SEA 2, MIN 1: Paxton Outduels Romero


 

Don't worry about the AAA yo-yo. Just send Buxton down until he's hitting again. That's fine if it's August. Whoever you run out there can't be any worse: just play decent defense and hit like .230. I'd think LaMarre could do that.

If Buxton were to go down, I would rather go with Kepler in CF and then Wade in RF. I would think there's no way the Twins would go with Lamarre as their everyday CF.

Scratch Escobar off that list. He is quite cold at the moment.

 

On the list of players hitting right now. Adrianaza just might be number 3 on the list. 

Over the last 7 days, Fox's stat finder shows only Kepler with an OPS above .700. I'm not interested in knowing whether Ehire Freaking Adrianza is second or third in some Slow Mule Race. :) This team is just Cold at bat right now.

Kinda like saying that Adrianaza is the 2nd most honest politician.

I don’t care if Ehire Adrianza OPS’d 2.000 over the last week. He’s a weak hitter, he’s not going to get much better, and no matter what his last 20 PAs were, his next 300 will be weak.

I'd be 100% fine with that. Clearly there are options at AAA that could hit over .167 and give you adequate defense in CF.

James Paxton's rank among AL starting pitchers

WAR: 6th

ERA: 10th

WHIP: 8th

K/9: 3rd

FIP: 8th

SIERA: 4th

 

Safe to say he's pretty good. 

Tom:

 

Yes - Paxton is good, but the point is almost EVERY starting pitcher they run into is shutting them down.  Leake did it again yesterday.

 

Right now this team would be lucky to score on AAA pitching.  With Mauer out and Buxton and Sano appearing lost at the plate, this team is going no where fast.
