Fun with Stats

Here's some mindless fun with stats.
The Twins are 29-29 since starting the season 6-16 and they are 19-12 in their last 31 games including tonights game against Detroit. (question here is can 1 or 2 more starting pitchers push us to the next level as our hitting, defense, and bullpen seem good enough to contend)
Gray has a 4.08 era and most bloggers can't wait to get rid of him, but take out his worst appearance and he has a 2.80 era and 5 vulture wins.
Waldrop tied Butera in K's this evening.
which player is this Valencia or Parmelee: 100AB 19H 5 2B 1 3B 1 HR
The Twins could actually have 6 players with 10+ stolen Bases on the team by the end of the season. When was the last time the Twins had that many Pirahnas? (I don't know that answer) but here are the candidates: Revere and Casilla with 10+ already and Span, Caroll, Dozier, and Mastroianni.
A fun exercise: Rank the Twins starting pitchers from best to worst and beyond....
1. Cole Devries
2. Brian Duensing
3. Anthony Swarzak
4. Francisco Liriano
5. Jason Marquis
6. Carl Pavano
7. PJ Walters
8. Liam Hendriks
9. Nick Blackburn
10. Scott Diamond
Tyler Robertson pitched in 5 of his first 6 games after being called up. The Twins are taxing their bullpen.
One last thought should the Twins go to a 4 man rotation and bring up a 9th reliever? or go to a 14 man pitching staff at some point to help the bullpen with some of their workload?
