One less failed Twins reliever

6 posts in this topic

I always thought that when Cleveland cuts a player, their career was or should be over.

The Minnesota Twins waived relief pitcher Craig Breslow, who was claimed by the Oakland Athletics, and will recall starting pitcher Anthony Swarzak from Class AAA Rochester on Thursday, the team announced today.

Swarzak, a right-hander who went 3-4 with a 2.25 ERA in seven starts for Rochester, is scheduled to start Saturday night's game against the Milwaukee Brewers at the Metrodome.

Breslow was 1-2 with a 6.28 ERA for the Twins this season.

He is a breathing left-hander...somebody will always pick up a left handed pitcher.....does that mean Oakland's bullpen is worse then the Twin's???

The first of many I hope. The bullpen has been brutal since mid-season last year. Time to shake things up and bring in some new blood.

Be nice to go out and spend some money for a proven guy though wouldn't it?

Breslow did look decent last year. This year- not so much

wonder why they dropped him instead of crain? not that breslow was doing anything but I think crain was doing much worse. almost seems like crain kind of fits into the punto/cuddyer mold where they are given endless opportunities to redeem themselves.

    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
