    Twins get Eddie G

    I'm no major league GM but this strikes me as odd given the strength of the Twins bullpen. So is Boof gone?

    It's good to have Everyday Eddie back in a Twins uniform.

    I'm sure you're right but it just struck me as odd when I saw it. I guess you take good pitching whenever/wherever you can get it.

    Re: Twins get Eddie G

    The Sox would have blocked it, I'm sure, had the Twins won yesterday.

    I'm happy to see them get a guy that has been mediocre against the Sox, though.

    One can only hope so...

    It's kind of sad actually - the guy had all kinds of potential a couple of years ago, and he just never developed.

    Re: Twins get Eddie G

    I doubt that they get rid of Boof. Boof still has time to develop even though it seems like all is lost with him. Remember that one guy by the name of David Ortiz? That didn't turn out so well for the Twins when they released him. haha. Look for some sort of move like Everett going on the DL, he hasn't played for a few days I think with some sort of "injury". So just watch for something like that. It'd be crazy to drop Boof and get nothing in return. He "could" turn into a decent pitcher someday. It just takes some longer than others. It's great to have Eddie G. back though. The bullpen needs him badly!!!!

    He can set up for Nathan or spell Joe if we need him. I'm glad he's back

    Could be something like that but I doubt it would be Everett given that he JUST came off of the DL. Maybe Lamb?

    thanks, now I have to go back to Ortiz therapy....

    Twins bullpen isn't that much of a strength right now. It's been pretty rough the past month or two getting from the 6th to the 9th inning and a lot of the relievers have been overworked.

    Glad they got some bullpen help.... I love Everyday Eddie!

    Re: Twins get Eddie G

    Mike Lamb was sent down.

    And whoever says the Twins bullpen doesn't need help hasn't been paying attention since the All-Star game. They've been horrid for the most part and have cost quite a few games.

    100% correct. IMO, with some solid middle/late relief over the past month, the Twins would have a nice lead in the AL central.

    Will Eddie be in Seattle tonight? It wasn't too long ago he pitched there.

    Well, horrid might be a bit strong. I follow the twins daily and outside of Bonser, I'd say they've done just fine. And he's even been pretty good his last 6 or 7 games. Guerrier has struggled a little lately but without his first half, they wouldn't be where they are. You do realize that defensive miscues cost them the last two games with the Angels right? And I believe that Everett single handedly gave a game to KC. Don't put it all on the bullpen...
