Adopt a Prospect #6: Luis Perdomo's Debut!

Well, that debut could definitely have gone better.
After posting a .949 WHIP between AA & AAA (only .661 in AAA) Luis Perdomo gave up 1 hit, 3 walks and a Swagalicious Error to 7 batters last night, his first night as an honest to goodness Minnesota Twin. He was wild (19 balls to just 11 strikes) and gave up 2 (unearned) runs before leaving the bases loaded in low leverage situation.
There is one natural thing to blame this on: THE SOUL PATCH!!
LUIS, your beard is a thing of beauty and a joy to behold, I'm sure that Terry Ryan asked you to shave it for some voodoo ritual to increase the prowess of Misters Deduno, Fine et. al. But now it is on you to either get in on the juju, or grow it back! I grant that your soul patch is more stylish than 90% of the other Twins facial hair, but it cannot compare with the full-on muzzle. So rub in some chia pet seeds and water regularly, so we can get back to the business of kicking butt and taking names.
Love your adopted blogger's,
