Garza's first start

17 posts in this topic

I hope Garza's effort tonight matches the hype. History says he won't make the fifth inning.

Even if he is doing well I doubt he'll go past 5.

My prediction is 5 innings, 2 runs, 4-5 strikeouts and then the bullpen takes over.

I don't think they want to throw the kid out for 7+ innings right away. 6 is the absolute most unless he is throwing a no hitter.

All we can hope is that he isn't another Eddie Bane or David Clyde...

Hes a deep game pitcher. I think if he's crusing they'll let him go.

I havent been this excited for a game all year!

Top of the 2nd 5-0 TOR they sure do like his fastball. Didn't someone say here that any ML batter can hit a fastball. O wait that was me... Gee I hope something good happens here ... 7 hits so far I can't write anymore..

This is both good and bad.

Bad that we are losing.

Good that he is getting MLB experience.

Cant judge a pitcher his age on his first MLB start.

With all of those big series with Detroit and Chicago. smirk.gif

Pitched a lot like Scott Baker. Good stuff but can't live up in the zone. I can only imagine how nervous he was. Will see I'm sure he'll get at least 2 maybe 3 more starts. Can't get much worse... ooo.gif

Chances of Making the playoffs. I believe are about over with. We don't have a good rotation. Silva is off and on. Baker's probably going to get beat up today to. I love the Twins, but I'm afraid it's going to take a miracle to make the playoffs.

I just read a stat today on trib.com and of the 60 + pitches he threw last night, 45-49 of them were fastballs ooo.gif When anybody at the plate is sitting on a fastball, they will pounce all over it.

Hopefully Anderson will be able to help him with his slider and curveball.

I'm not expecting big things from him this year. I had a hunch he wasn't going to be effective because they did say he had great control of his fastball, but all his other pitchs were pretty questionable. They definately needed some work more or less.

It's pretty clear that Gardy didn't learn anything from TK. Despite who's calling the shots, TK would have had Garza pitch some relief to get a taste, build some confidence and see if he had the junk it took to be a starter.

Reusse had a nice piece today on Ron Davis. Back in those days, it was pretty easy to get seats where you could see his stuff. He pitched for today's KC back them.

In Gardy defense, They don't need relief pitchers they need starters. You don't mess with the #1 bull pen giving somebody innings to practice. I think he was not ready to be called up, but was and now that he is he will have to learn from his outing. Kid's got stuff, just has to learn how to pitch. Last I look the manager is Gardy, TK is retired.

traded WHO for a pitcher???? I can't remember the last time the Twins traded for a pitcher at the deadline other than Rick Reed---glad he's long gone.

THE twins did it right by not making a move. They are young- keep them together-- and this year is a long way from over-- Silva - Radke- Santanna-- still can win alot of games, plus with days off-- they only need one start from a 4th guy.

      Lengths were a little tough to figure out without stressing the fish.  My board only goes to 24 and that wasn't enough.   I did tare my digital scale with the hoop of my rubber net and weighed em in that.  One was 6; the other 8.4.  I had another 24 incher earlier in the day but didn't weigh it.   We got 1 pike and severa smallies too but let everything go since fish wasn't on the menu this weekend.

      First place to look would any of the local dams. Gull river, Mississippi, Crosslake, all have fish throughout the year.   There are a few piers to try as well.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?
