:) Can't wait to see him pitch again next year. We can only wonder where we'd be right now if he was still pitching for us.

I would take him right now throwing left handed out of the bullpen!

Only thing that scares me is that his violent motion is something that is his key to being succesful. If they change this to protect him, I don't know if he will be as good.


But Peavy, Danks, Gavin, Buehrle, Danks, Jackson for next season sure gives me hope!

Why doesn't he start throwing now? Coop will fix him in no time. :wink:

Glad to hear this, and I can't wait to see what this rotation does next season.

The Sox will be unstoppable with the tandem of the Danks bros!:tongue:

LOL!

Well, seeing that Jordan can't hit for ****, pitching might be his next option.

Maybe that's the solution. Anyone that can't hit becomes a pitcher and anyone that can't pitch becomes a hitter.

Great news regarding Peavy.

Jake's a bulldog. I'm fairly confident that if he didn't get injured, we'd be in first place right now by plenty.

I agree. It's not so much the W/L as Jackson has done a nice job, but Jake was one of the emotional leaders on the team. He carried himself in a very confident/competitive way and he was getting better as the season progressed, dead arm and all. He reminded me a lot of Jack McDowell. I really miss him on the team. :(:

I am pretty sure if the Twins had Morneau and Nathan, we'd be in second place by plenty.

Throughout the last few years, the Twins always seem to go on torrid runs when Morneau gets hurt.. Nathan I'll grant you, but aside from those two, they've had a healthy team all year.

If they stay off of the disabled list.
And if they stay on the team...we're going to have to figure some kind of way to get some YOUNG offensive talent on this team.

Or where we'd be if he was healthy at all this year, which I don't think he was. His stuff just never had the same wow factor at any point this year, he was pretty flat. Hopefully we get Cy Young Peavy back next year.

Yeah, he absolutely dominated the Nats and Cubs in his last few starts. Granted it was the Nats and Cubs, but he was coming around. He also seems to make everyone around him better.

Some say he started the year with a modified motion which contributed to his poor performance, then reverted to the violent motion that gave him some success..and the subsequent injury.
