Know Thine Enemy: Let's Go Tribe
|2012 - Brian Duensing||1-6||37||4||0||0||0||0||53.2||58||30||29||6||16||31||4.86||1.38|
Duensing has made four starts this season, worth just 13.1 innings and accumulating a 10.13 ERA. Opponent OPS in those innings? 1.144. Brian already has a difficult assignment in essentially taking over for Liriano, and if he doesn't put up a non-terrible performance this afternoon then sane fans should probably head for the hills.
|2012 - Ubaldo Jimenez||8-9||20||20||0||0||0||0||116.0||117||67||64||17||69||88||4.97||1.60|
Remember Jimenez's 2010 season? Yeah, the Indians pretend not to remember it either. Just to put the Liriano deal into some perspective, I think it's fair to say that he hasn't been the pitcher Cleveland's front office thought he'd be. This is a much bigger deal than whether or not the Twins made a good deal with the White Sox.
