    Check out his stats with the Twins. His whole career has been subpar to say the least.

    Well, it's official. Kyle Lohse will get the ball Saturday afternoon against the Braves. There's nothing wrong with Brandon Claussen physically, it's strictly a "baseball decision," according to Narron.

    Claussen's rehab clock runs out next week, and he says he feels fine, so it'll be interesting to see what they do with him. He said no one has approached him about the possibility of sliding into a long-relief role.

    Can anybody look up what the rehab rules are. I was under the impression that pitchers could stay out on rehab longer than hitters. I found this from the Baltimore Sun:

    There are two disabled lists, 15-day and 60-day. Players may be disabled retroactively, up to a maximum of 10 days, beginning with the day after the last day they played. A player on the 15-day DL may be shifted to the 60-day DL at any time. Players may be assigned to a minor-league club for injury rehabilitation for a maximum of 20 days (30 days for pitchers).

    The guys on radio seem to think his 21 day rehab is up on Tuesday. Doesn't he have more than 21 days?

    It's 30 days for pitchers, as your article mentions.

    Makes all the routine posts.

    You do that. But most here KNEW Milton would be a disaster. And he is.

    Most here KNEW Ortiz would be a disaster. And he was.

    Most here KNEW Joe Freaking Mays would be a disaster of Krakatoa proportions. And he was.

    Yan

    White

    Burns

    Most here KNEW Majewski had bee ridden too hard for two seasons now.

    Conversely...

    Most here see Elizardo as a solid upcoming #3 pitcher. Most saw Arroyo as a guy that would benefit from a change in leagues, but that he could be the 2004 Arroyo, or he could be the 2005 Arroyo. Harang had yet to pitch a full season in the Major Leagues when aquired, and while nobody saw him as a guy that might lead the league in K's I don't think trading Guillen for him was trashed all that much. Now the Williamson and Boone trades, that's another story.

    Rose colored glasses are fine, but i prefer reality. Are you for some reason expecting Lohse to be something he's never been? Maybe his AAA numbers are indicative of a change in him. But then Mike burns is dominating AAA too.

    I'm going to wait and see if the sun rises in the east and sets in the west on Saturday. I'm told it's a lock, a sure thing, but there's no reason the earth couldn't spin in the opposite direction.

    Oh, sure the sun will probably come up in the east, but lately I've been hearing reports that west, even north might be a possibility.

    Heard it from the moon.

    As are all those Chattanooga relievers... what's the difference?

    Sometimes you can get surprised by a turn around.

    Let's give him a chance to be something he has been up until a terrible start this season. If he is just the league average pitcher he has been up until this season, do you know how much of an improvement that would be? Do you know how far Claussen has to go to have the track record Lohse has? Who else do you suggest get the start?

    No one is expecting him to morph into Cy Young. He's being pushed into the fifth starter's spot because we don't have any other good options. Look around -- precious few teams have good options in that spot. If Lohse can give give them five or six innings and keep them in the game, that's all anyone can ask. And looking at this guy's track record, that's not asking for the sun to rise in the west.

    For crying out loud, just slit your wrists and get it over with.

    Re: Loshe to start saturday

    The truth is a lot of teams have a vacuum at #5 starter. The Red Sox are struggling with 3-11 Jason Johnson. The Yankees have used castoffs like Sydney Ponson and in our own division the Cardinals #5 guy, Jeff Weaver, just got rocked again last night. A lot of teams would like a decent #5. There just isn't enough good starting pitching to fill 5 spots on 30 teams. The reality is when our #5 guy goes we'd better bring our hitting shoes and hope the bullpen is ready.
