DOTF will look a bit different now, with Zach Ward and Germano gone.
Lohse has pretty good stuff, but his problem is control. Ward is a fantastic prospect. It looks like Krivsky is showing too much loyalty to former Twins than actually making a good trade.
Sam LeCure pitched 5 shutout innings giving up 3 hits . . . but walked 4 and struck out zero. He’s kinda been all over the place . . . but with Ward traded for Lohse, why do we even bother?
