Do Twins fans want Deduno to fail?

Rate this Entry
With his second straight sterling performance yesterday, Samuel, proved he is a valuable resource. Interestingly, Deduno before Slama....hmmm

With all the criticism of Deduno, do you really want him to fail?

I am delighted that Twins have found a way to use him and this might be his optimum role.

His stuff is just so good, remember this, when he is on, he can beat anybody,

We need a few more of those, do we not?

    I want him to fail as a starter. This is because I have a strong desire for May and Meyer to come up. They are not getting any younger and their time is now. Twins need the dead weight to fail miserably to force their hand into cutting bait because we all know that the FO has to be dragged kicking and screaming into decisions.

    I don't think i want him to fail so to speak, but id rather see May and Meyer. Deduno is what he is, i don't think he will ever be a guy that you can really count on.

    I just want him to be consistent so the team can make a decision on him. Who is he, really? Do we keep him or not? I have no idea. I'd rather have him succeed, but right now he's just teasing us. I have no idea what to expect. That's not good enough, at least not for a team with any aspirations.

    but he is consistent. He's consistently inconsistent. That's why he's a bad groundball pitcher. He has no idea where the ball is going. I would love it if he became the second coming of Brad Radke, but he's not Brad Radke.

    Do I want him to fail? No. Do I think he's going to be a viable starting pitcher? No.

    I think after last season, the majority of fans were hoping he'd fully recover from his procedure and be the same electric, and mostly consistent SP this year we saw in 2013.

    For whatever reason(s) he just hasn't been that guy. And when you need top quality SP, have some top prospects so close, and have endured 3 straight disappointing seasons, with some awful pitching and a glut of AAAA fill in types, it's easy to pull the rip cord on a guy like Deduno at this point.

    He was a good story while it lasted, and Pino is sort of the new Deduno at the moment. Now, if Deduno suddenly got another shot, pitched 6 quality innings each time out! occassionaly 7, and looked like the guy he was last season, the love and optimism would return somewhat. Certainly it would give the team another option. But at this time, the May and Meyer train is quickly approaching the Target Field Depot.

    Where did this come from?

    Deduno could be a great mop up guy, as many people have been saying all along. He kept us in the game Friday.

    Agreed, though I think a spot-long-mid man is more to his capabilities vs simply mop-up. Especially if he can start an inning vs combining in in the middle. Could pressure Swarzak, or, if Swarzak can hop on his 2013 wagon, he might be capable of more 7th inning plus appearances.

    I don't want him to fail. I don't want any of our guys to fail. However, I know that Deduno is not meant to be a full time starter. The role he is in now, a long reliever, is the correct role for him. I was at the game Saturday when he pitched 4.2 shutout innings out of the pen. That outing confirmed to me that he belongs in the bullpen.

    Nobody wants to see an honest player fail. (everyone will cheer Arod failing)

    Deduno, when starting, got Pinto behind the plate. Anderson coached him to not be himself and the fastball movement disappeared. I don't think they want anybody to fail, they just fail at knowing how to handle individuals and help them be the best them that they can be.
