Rusty vs. quality

Posted at 10:58 AM on April 7, 2006 by Ben Tesch

I know it's a bit overinflated, but it's still amazing to note that Carlos Silva threw as many walks yesterday as he did for an entire quarter of last season.

When Silva was asked if he felt that he was behind due to his pitching for Venezuela, the answer was an adamant no.

Sure, whatever, buddy. Giving up two walks and getting gassed in the 6th says "rusty" to me.

Today at 2:05pm CT the Twins start their series against Cleveland, with the back-to-back arbitration winner Kyle Lohse taking the mound against newly acquired Paul Byrd, whose 22 quality starts last year ranked second in the AL behind Johan Santana's 24.
