Twins @ Brewers - Wednesday, June 23, 2010

Fangraphs

I love the Twins, but right now we are fighting.

Best hitter:  Jason Kubel, .162 WPA.

Worst hitter:  Michael Cuddyer, -.144 WPA.  Cuddles needs a day off, but that probably means Brendan Harris would be back at third.  Ugh.

Best pitcher:  Jesse Crain, .049 WPA.

Worst pitcher:  Ron Gardenhire, for pulling Liriano after the fifth inning. F-Bomb wasn’t his sharpest, but he only threw 77 pitches and still posted a 7/1 K/BB ratio despite giving up three runs, and to pull him just because he had to hit is about as dumb as it gets.  I hate the National League, I really do.

Most important play of the game:

Rickie Weeks’s single to center that plated a pair of runs, .223 WPA.

Topics: Francisco Liriano, Jesse Crain, Michael Cuddyer, Milwaukee Brewers, Minnesota Twins
