Lambs to the slaughter? We look to our shepherd Giolito as he faces Berrios and the Twins 8:10 EST

Dear Ricky,

When a player hits 2 home runs make sure you pitch to him so he can get his third.  

Has Cooper even bothered getting off his throne to talk to Giolito?

He is too busy trying to add a cutter to Dylan Cease and teach him tall and fall.

Maybe not pitch to Cruz. Gio channeling Jim Parque.

Three homers for Cruz, lol.  All the more reason Abreu had better accept a team friendly deal if the Sox resign him.

Team friendly is more like only offer...what team is in search of a DH that struggles to keep his OPS above .800?

Nah, he’s on the phone with Kopech, Rodon, Dunning and Lambert seeing how their recovery is going.

Anyone else curious/skeptical about this Twins power output this year?

Hahn wishes he could make the cheap pickups the Twins do year after year.  He gets bums like Castillo, Alonso, and Jay.  The Twins acquire Cruz, Cron, and Schoop.

What’s he going to say? Don’t give up home runs?

Well we were trying to load up on the friends and family discount deal for Manny.

How about stop falling off the mound towards first base, which is causing your arm not to keep up with your body?  I called it earlier in the game he was struggling with his mechanics.

So you are implying that these injuries are Cooper‘s fault?

You are taking your shtick too far

The hot takes in here are quite something. It‘s not like Giolito dominated the Rays in his last start.

People saying he looks like '18 Gio are being short-sided. That Giolito would be walking 5+ guys as well as giving up runs and not K'ing anybody. His peripheral numbers this year are far superior.

Hahn is equal opportunity with his crappy pickups.  Herrera, Nova, and Santana also thank him for easy money.

Regression is a b**** for both Gio and McCann.

92 mph fastballs won’t work...regression sucks 

Lol...how is this regression for Giolito?  Dude was filthy in the first half and had the stuff to back up the numbers.

Ya'll need to chill on the hot takes. Gio's last 8 opponents have been NYY, BOS, CHCx2, KCR, TBR, and MINx2. That is a hell of a lot of good offenses. He'll be fine, especially as he gets more experience (and consistency) with his new delivery

Not to mention their owner actually spends the money on far superior scouting and analytics department despite a low payroll as a small market team compared to our owner.

Regression doesn't happen in the second half of a season?

Not necessarily his fault, but I also don’t believe he has the slightest clue how to coach up this new generation of velocity guys. The bigger issue is that keeping pitchers healthy used to be something he was praised for, but that has shifted.  I just don’t see how they can justify keeping him around getting his massive failures the last 5 years or so.

If a pitcher can't beat good lineups, he's not a top of the rotation starter.  We need better than #3 pitchers to do some damage going forward.

Yeah if they spend on starting pitching this offseason, I don’t see how they won’t be the favorite in the AL Central next few years.

He struck out 7 batters in 5 innings, and hit 96 mph multiple times. He's fine. Cruz is hot as fuck and added a little extra ingredient in his protein shake. He ran into a hot power hitter. Meh.

And have fired GM’s twice and managers at least twice over the last decade...despite the Twins getting a wild card berth in 2017.
