  • Twins vs White Sox, 07-24-2012, 7:10pm

    Francisco Liriano had a disappointing night against the Sox last night, giving up seven runs before getting the hook in the third inning. It could deal quite a blow to the front office's trade expectations from the player but thankfully, Liriano will be able to make one more redemption start before the trade deadline is over, should teams need reassurance.

    Tonight, Cole De Vries looks to build on his recent success against the Orioles. Countering him, the White Sox will send out lefty Jose Quintan, who has helped power the Sox to first place in the AL Central over the past two months.

    What do you expect from De Vries tonight? Will he be able to contain the White Sox in the bandbox that is US Cellular? How much did Liriano hurt his trade value with last night's start? As always, join the Twins Daily discussion below and talk about it!

      Have we time-warped back into 2011? What's happened to our bullpen the past couple of weeks?

      I'm not really worried that guys like Fien and Robertson are struggling, both are pretty "meh" pitchers who never figured into any sort of long term plans anyways.

      Color me concerned if Duensing, Perkins and Burton all start looking awful.

      Well Fien wasn't before this inning.

      Why was he done so early? Pitch count?

      Like a bloated pufferfish, they blow up and just kind of wave their fins around.

      brutal 7th inning. At least we have seen a couple good starts by the youngsters Deduno and DeVries

      For all the moaning about the SP, we sure have blown a few decent starts as of late.

      So you're saying we should be buyers?

      I was wondering about that myself. I was reading somewhere (KFAN website?) that the Twins are going to change their approach and try to get their starters to go deeper, average around 115-120 pitches per game, because of the overuse the bullpen has been getting.

      So why pull DeVries at 95 pitches with a 2-run lead? He certainly couldn't have done any worse than the bullpen did.
