|2009 - Scott Baker||8-7||20||20||0||0||0||0||120.1||119||66||65||20||26||102||4.86||1.20|
Scott Baker has to be a stopper tonight, giving the Twins much-needed innings and, hopefully, handing the ball to Matt Guerrier to hold it for Joe Nathan. If it goes to the guys in between, I'll be watching the game through my hands. Fortunately, the Inidains traded three of their best hitters recently--Victor Martinez, Ryan Garko and Ben Francisco--so the task before Baker should be somewhat easier.
|2009 - David Huff||5-5||14||14||0||0||0||0||76||97||56||54||12||23||39||6.39||1.37|
David Huff is not very good. I could say he's in a slump, but it would be a season-long slump. Opponents have had an 800+ OPS against him for the whole year. So I like our chances against him. I don't have a lot more to say about him except that he's a soft-tossing lefty--the kind of pitcher who can sometimes cause fits in our line-up, especially the over-anxious righties. But we hit him pretty well last time, so perhaps we will tonight.
