I have it on good authority that Kevin Slowey will start Game 1 of the ALDS this fall, and I don't mind admitting that authority isn't actually my own delusion. Slowey is a bit of a dark horse outside of Minnesota, but those of us who saw him up his game last season understand perfectly well what kind of a hurler this guy can be. He can give hitters a few different looks and, as far as I can recall, has always been as cool as a cucumber on the mound. His keys to success tonight are the same as always: control, location and keeping out of long innings. Go figure.



Carlos Silva

#52 / Pitcher / Seattle Mariners

6-4

That look on Silva's face hasn't changed in two years, has it? It's like someone walked in and caught him licking melted chocolate off of a candy bar wrapper. That was just in the garbage can. For tonight, Silva will be familiar with a few of the hitters the Twins should be sending out, but there's been a lot of turnover since 2007. If Carlos can be the ground-ball out machine version of himself instead of the guy who allows 17 baserunners too many per game, then this one could still be a contest come the sixth inning.
