    Ohh, Walters had better be careful, hitting someone after one of your guys was hit, and especially against a division rival, is just asking for trouble later...:|

    I don't think it's too much of a worry. Esp after he threw one about 10 feet wide, right to the backstop.

    After coming on for the extremely ineffective Floyd, Stewart has only allowed two baserunners and has three strikeouts. He has also only thrown 44 pitches in 3 1/3 innings, where Floyd threw 88 in 3 2/3. Hopefully, Stewart won't be available tomorrow, because after our breakout against Floyd he has shut us down.

    Walters has continued his effectiveness, as he has thrown only 79 pitches in 7 innings of pitching. He has only given up 3 hits, allowed only one run, struck out four, and walked two.

    I like how often Walters changes speeds. When they guess right they put a good swing on it but it is mostly guess work. Try to name the pitch or the speed, it is always changing in the same situations. Hes going to allow a few homers. But I think even when he cools off and he will, he can still pitch in the majors. I like this kid

    That's stamina for you, Walters is still able to throw a 91 mph fastball, and then he follows it up with a 78 mph slider. He then throws practically the same pitch sequence to Escobar, and induces another strikeout. Walters has only thrown 89 pitches; do the Twins let him come back out, or do they bring in a reliever?

    I hope the discussion is this: You have the ninth until you give up a hit or walk.

    Have you seen the Twins over the years? They don't always let the pitcher on cruise control finish the game. Can't think of specific examples, but I know it has happened.

    And Hudson has fully gone to the dark side with a single off of Walters.

    Wow, the Sux must be REALLY desperate to get something going if they are pinch hitting for Dunn
