Count me in as one of those who don't understand this move. If they don't want Waino to start and save him for the home opener, then at least throw Garcia out there. I know Lohse is a decent pitcher but is that the best we can do for opening day?
I just hope Carp isn't sidelined for a long period of time.
Its a respect/senority type thing. Garcia will have his turns at opening days. And plenty of em.
Lohse will be fine.
And for the record, I think Lohse had a bit of a dead arm towards the end of the season. I expect him to be fine this year and win 15 to 16 games. 15-6 3.38.
I called for 15 last year as well and didnt miss it by much.
Everyone needs to lay off the guy. He is fine for what he represents in our rotation. We are lucky to have him.
Or does everyone long for the Jason Simontacchi days? You know, when the bottom of our rotation blew chunks.
P -> Q /\ !P means !Q, right? Oh wait, no, it tells us nothing about Q.
buzz.lohse is one of our better pitchers( gag) now anywaywe are fine
an waino can open at home ..in front of a raving crowd who loves himit sounds goofy ...lohse opening day starter..but its not.
I agree with laying off Lohse, and I've never been a basher but this news just took me a bit by surprise I guess.
I would like nothing more than for the guy to go out in 2012 and put up 15 wins or more and have a really good year.
I know Westbrook is looking good this spring, but I still think the team should have signed Edwin Jackson since he's a young innings eater. We'll see how the staff does with potential Carpenter health issues....
"but I still think the team should have signed Edwin Jackson since he's a young innings eater. "
How many innings per start did he eat in the playoffs?
Garcia didn't eat many innings in the playoffs either. Maybe we should get rid of him too.
