Best Indian hitters up this inning so why not Jimenez pitching ?

Either the old adage "'6 of 1, half dozen of another" ... or Gardenhire doing his best Ausmus imitation?

And again today allowing 6 in the 9th to blow a 4 run lead. Are they trying to lose ? They left the 9th inning pitcher in for 5 runs.

I don't know.

I'm of the mindset you start extras with your best available pitcher.

I'm also of the mindset that I don't think Jimenez is the best available pitcher on most nights, but that could be an entire thread onto itself.

Gardenhire trying to see other pitchers in high leverage situations?   Doesn't make a lot of sense but possible.

I think that's fine in September, but not in a game with playoff implications.

But then as far as Jimenez goes, please refer to the above.

Other than a better K rate, if you look at Jimenez's and Cisnero's stat lines for this season there isn't all that much to choose between them, and Cisnero is hot garbage.

Jimenez isn't all that good.

Another tease. On his good days his stuff is elite, but will he ever have enough good days? I don't know what a team is supposed to do with guys like that. I guess when you are not very good you can afford to give them a lot of rope hoping they figure it out, and some proportion of guys inevitably will.

Joe Jimenez will be back, though. And why not.

The team has to have a "fat mexican" in line for a closer job... it's the rule.  Until we get his backfill Jimenez is on the radar.
