Lohse: Turning the Corner or False Hope??

Recommended Posts

Down to Earth

Believe it or not the guy went 4-0 with a 2.14 ERA this Spring. The guy actually pitched pretty decent. What are the odds he can keep it somewhat once the regular season starts? If he improves from last year he could turn into a solid #4 guy in the rotation.

He actually had a pretty decent second half last year, too...he may be a serviceable fourth starter. If not, I hope they move Liriano into the rotation sooner rather than later...

I would love to say that Loshe is goning to have a good year but I cant. They wont score enought runs for him again and he will lose confidence again and start giving up jacks. I still like the twins pitching.

I believe that lohse does good every spring, but never caries it over to the season. lets hope he has matured anough to do so. what a picthing staff we could have if he does good.

Lohse, pitched five more strong innings, giving up two runs and two hits while walking one and striking out four. He went 5-0 with a 2.42 ERA in seven starts and gave up only one run in 14 innings in his last three starts.

Buzz, yesterday he gave up two longballs. So thats al least two runs in yesterdays five innings. At least I think thats right.

Well after 1 start it looks like false hope.

4 2/3 innings giving up 8 earned runs.

Well I see Lohse was a flash in the pan in pre-season looks like another below average season for him,now we will really be in trouble with him and the beachballer (radke)pitching the same way as last year.

I don't know, I won't seal him to his current fate just yet. He could still get worse before he's done.

You guys tend to forget what happened last year you cant get to far behind at the beginning at that is what is going to happen if Gardy doesnt straighten some things out right now I mean with the White Sox and Indians its going to be tough to stay above water.

I also think that you need to take a step back and realize that there are still only 4 games into the season. Lets not sit here with the finger on the big red panic button just yet. Why even pay attention to the team if you are already condeming them to a bad year after only 4 games?

What does Gardy have to straighten out? What has gone so wrong so far this season that you are ready to start making changes already?

Santana has a bad start we should probably trade him before his next start so he doesn't pull us down. Radke gave up a few early runs before winning his game so we should probably cut ties with him to since he's a liability. The team is only averaging 6 runs a games so we should cut some dead weight and bring in some better bats, and the last dome dog I ate gave me a stomach ache so we better call the health department. OH, NO THE WHOLE TEAM IS IN SHAMBLES...HAS ANYONE SEEN THE BUTTON? WHERE IS THE PANIC BUTTON? PLEASE SOMEONE HIT THE PANIC BUTTON!!!

the twins strong points (pitching) did not do good this week, but a good sign is our hitting looks much better. our pitching will be tops again, so don't worry too much, they will survive.

I started laughing when the Twins went up 4-2 tonight vs the Angels, I told my wife "Lohse will give it right back" and HE DID!! She asked how I knew that would happen? and I said "he's Kyle Lohse". He then continued to implode and waste a night at the park for all the people who paid to see a major league pitcher. the guys a waste of hope and there is an arbitrator somewhere who needs to be hung.

Good call Buzzsaw, though you should have waited another inning to post. Not only did he give it right back, he gave a little extra. 8 runs in 3.1 innings boosting his ERA up over 11.

The offense is suprising me a little. I was skeptical during the offseason about the moves they made. I liked Castillo when they signed him .300 career average and 3 gold gloves is about all you can want in a 2nd baseman. But thats really the only move I thought was good. But everyone is hitting better so far this year. Also we are making productive outs where they are getting the runner over to second or third. I'm glad I have been wrong so far. Its perfect Twins baseball if the pitching comes around. Lohse will be out and Liriano will be in within 2 more trips through the rotation if this continues.

Oh my gosh! I turned the TV off when we were down 8-4 to concentrate on hanging out and playing with my son and I wake up and see we won 12-10!! I love a good pitchers battle. grin.gif

Our whole starting staff has been horrible, a team starter ERA of over 7? At least we are scoring runs, I have to believe the pitching will come around in time. I agree with the sentiment that Lohse is what he is, not good.

8-Ball

Lohse stinks-as usual. Why did we make such an effort to sign him (again). I just don't get it. Throw his rear in the bullpen and put some heat on him to improve, or else. Every time the team gives him a lead to work with, he immediately gives it right back! New year, same Lohse, as '04,'05, etc... It is disgusting, every time I see him on the mound my stomach turns.

I was at that game last night and what an exciting offensive game!!! Too bad the Twins couldn't get me a HR in the 5th inning, I would've won a $300 gift certificate to best buy, instead I ended up with a dvd and a cd! Brought the boy and once again, we scored a baseball from a player. This time it was Punto throwing one up to him. We score some tickets from our broker occasionally and they are right above the runway where the twins will walk in and out of to and fro for batting. The players always gather in there and goof off! Sometimes pretty fun just to watch those guys doing different stuff.

GO TWIN!!

I figured you were going to tell us about all of the swear words coming from Lohse's mouth after giving up all of those runs. shocked.gif

      I agree I have not heard much on here about the area.  Headed to shields on Saturday,  hope it pans out.

      I have a Striker Hardwater and the Wife has the Clam Rise suit. Both are great and we chose them based on how they fit, each body is different and you will find different brands and even product lines within a brand will fit different. I would try stopping by Thorne Bros and see what they have in stock to try on, they might have more upstairs if you dont see your size.  Float suits dont go on sale much other than the Blaine Ice show, St Paul Ice show, Black Friday and then after the season.

      This are premium Rods from Alpha Angler. This company is the rod sponsor for 2017 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Brandon Palaniuk. The Rebound: is a glass cranking rod. Best I've ever used. Fantastic feel. The Zilla: is a a perfect all around Rod. I primarily used it for pitching jigs. I've owned these rods for less than a year they were purchased in spring 2018. I just have way more tackle rods reels etc. Than I have room for. Rods new retail together are $475 I'm selling them as a package for $320. Or individually for $175 each.  I'm in the north metro area. And am willing to drive a reasonable distance if need be. Feel free to make an offer but a serious ones only. Also I have photos of the Rods if youd like just email me and I'll send then to you. Let me know!  Email me at  [email protected]

      Went out just to check ice depth today, measured 13.5" on lake one a couple hundred yards out from the public access in town.  No snow left, very slick, and lots of heave action on a majority of the shoreline.
    • Bryan P
      Me too. Got out few times before but nothing really going on. This was my best outing yet for me this season. Hoping to have more of these days!  I'm glad you enjoy my videos. You can follow my channel if you want to see all my videos. I only post some on this site.
