We Need A Pitcher, Not A Belly Itcher!
I'd like to give a big eff you to the front office in this post.
Seriously? What gives? How is it that every other person in the state can see that this team needs a pitcher but the front office can't seem to figure it out? For the love of Pete, even the beat writers are making fun of the Twins because of their poor pitching. It just blows my mind. I don't understand it.
How many times have we all said Liriano has to go or he needs to go to the bullpen, something ANYTHING but start another game. It would be nice if Bill Smith would wake up and see what's going on because with pitching performances like tonight's, this team won't make it to post season and won't be anything more than a .500 team which I hate because they are better than that.
I'm not worried about Timmy or Nicky, they seem to be holding their own. Glen has his good days and bad, but what pitcher doesn't? Joe Nathan doesn't get every save when he goes out there. Frankie seems to be consistently bad every game he pitches. Dickey, Matty G, Jose, Brian hold their own, Jesse can be hit or miss and then you have Bobby (rolls eyes) I'm not even going to start on him because I could be here all night.
At least Tuesday nights game was a positive, it would have been nice if they would have saved some of those runs for tonight, but we don't always get what we want. I loved GoGo's little bat flip when he launched that home run (I missed it originally but watched online when I got home). I, personally, along with a few other people I'm sure, would love to see what happened Tuesday night happen more often.
Something needs to be done now or during the off season to fix the issue, that issue being mostly Frankie. If it means getting rid of him for someone different then so be it.
