Re: Lutz going on?

Lutz would see better pitching at triple A, and probably less control issues too. The ball would be more around the plate (hopefully), like it would be in the majors.
I don't know as much about him as others, but I don't see where it would hurt for him to go to triple A. If he fails miserably, send him back to Pensacola. They sent Yorman back to Dayton last season after failing miserably at Bakersfield.
The poster had shown Lutz had a nice K rate in the majors so far, so I was just pointing out that it was just a sample size mirage. Lutz has in fact K'd a lot and not walked much in the minros. It was all I was showing.
...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
