    Webster has good stuff.   Lacks command.  This is the major leagues.  Without command, you will not succeed.  Also , the reports of him throwing a fastball in the high 90s seems to have been exaggerated.  Maybe it was nerves , but his dismal performance last night was a major letdown.

     



    He's not usually wild - averages about a walk per start, including the game against KC.  He hit 97 a couple of times as well.

     

     




    It's not just about walks. It is about quality strikes. You cannot throw a fastball , even a good one , right down the middle.

    Webster was clearly off last night. The start before that he gave up 2 ER in six innings, and he has done well at AAA. I would much rather see him in the rotation than Doubront who showed up at camp fat and out of shape and has never performed at a decent level. Doubront should be viewed as "depth" for when someone in the rotation is injured and to accomplish that a phantom injury should be invented so he can be sent to Pawtucket for a long long rehab assignment.

     Long term I don't know about Webster but sadly last night all I could think of was deer-in-the-headlights. Doubront, on the other hand, didn't look like he gave a damn whether he got bombed or not. It's only one dreadful outing but last night neither one looked like they belonged in the bigs.

    On the other hand, Webster was anything but deer-in-headlights in his first start.  He looked like he had been-there-done-that.

    I know, everyone talks about this kids poise on the mound the 1st time, and now that he has a bad outing he was a "deer in the headlights"...Too funny.

    Re: Bill what say you t baller

    Last night Webster's heater didn't seem to have any movement and when you throw it right down the middle in "the bigs" you're gonna get tagged. Maybe if he had gotten a few calls early in the counts from the home plate ump, he could have stayed away from the middle of the plate, but that didn't happen and the Twins just teed off on him. Morale of the story is to get ahead in the count and make them swing at your pitch even if it is a few inches off the plate.

    No, because nearly everyone didn't expect him to hit .400 all year.

    Not for 0-for-8. I'm not that stupid. Not for any short slump for that matter.

    You see -- I have a brain. I never expected him to .400 or .500 all season. Heck, I really don't expect him to hit .300. With him missing the first couple weeks and coming back from the injury, all I expected was .270 or better with 25-plus homers and 90-plus RBIs. I don't expect a 37-year-old to carry the team -- just be a strong contributing piece. And if he does carry the team for short bursts -- great.

    Concerned about his health? Sure. Again -- because I have a brain. Achilles injuries are a concern and his health in general is a concern because of his age. But there's a difference between healthy concern and a pathological expectation that he will get hurt.
