The Twins have almost half (72) as many walks as us (140). That is just unfathomable.

And they're 6 games back. Something to work on, the walks are for sure. But at least we're still winning.

Oh I'm not saying its a problem. Every other team in the Majors has over 100 walks allowed. Minny is 30 below that.

Just commenting on how crazy that is.

That can be attributed to the mass quantities of double plays this team turns. Uribe sure hasn't done it with his bat, but he sure does know how to start those 6-4-3 double plays!

And Radke is insane -- he averages a walk every four starts or somethin crazy like that.

Yeah, what a surprise the Tigers are at 3.83 if they can keep that up and get Mags back then we could have some trouble later in the season.

bah...

I doubt that. They are 12 games out and falling. And as far as Greedy-O coming back, I am not betting on that. His "hernia" doesn't seem to be one that will heal quickly.

I think the most impressive stat is HR allowed. The Sox have the 5th fewest homers allowed in the majors. The guys are pitching low and inside, and getting those ground ball outs. Great to see, especially with our home ballpark.

Nothing says smartball like the lowest ERA in the majors!

Props to Don Cooper :gulp: , certainly an unsung hero of this season!

Maybe if the Jndjans start hitting, it will all play out like Dmitri foretold!

Radke's refusal to throw balls is part of the reason he gets hammered when he gets hammered.

Remember when Loaiza had that great year for us? A lot of people started saying that besides the cutter, it was because he wasn't pounding the plate as much.

Getting ahead in the count is great, but not at teh expense of throwing ygood pitches

Wow! IIRC, weren't the Marlins ahead of us by a lot only a few weeks ago? It looks like their ERA has gone up quite a bit, while ours may have gone up slightly. Wonder if they've had some injuries or have just been facing better hitting teams?

I bought the MLB extra innings package from Direct TV in order to keep an eye on the Twins.

They brought up that stat regarding the walks, but then 3 minutes later they showed a stat that the twins have given up the second most HRs in baseball. Tampa Bay was first with 56 and they were next with 52.

Agreed.

But when the opposing team scores off walks it personally hurts a little more.

Welcome aboard. Isn't Carbondale the best city in the world? I miss that place so much.

2nd in opponent OBA
2nd in opponent SLG
2nd in WHIP

But, damn, those Twins are good too. This Central Divsion race is going to hot this summer.

Have you guys seen the strike zone they've given Santana this year? I don't see how it's even possible for him to walk someone.

Yes, but is that because of great pitching or the fact they get to all play KC? :D:

Yep, the unbalanced sched tends to skew all the stats.

Santana has 4 (!) of the top 10 highest strikeout games so far this season. He does get a big zone but man, that guy can pitch.

Props to the AL Central for outpitching NL staffs that get to K the pitcher at least twice per game.
