On the way home from Beliot yesterday, I was very interested in a question during post game show KSTP following the victory over the Red Sox. The question was about what the starting rotation will look like going into next year. Maybe some of you will disagree with me, but, here is one guess. I believe that we will use the money that was spent on Capps, Liriano and Pavano to get a very good FA to fill our #1 spot. Scott Baker gets resigned to claim the second spot. Scott Diamond has definitely earned the three spot with his performance this year. Then, things get interesting..... HOPEFULLY, Liam Hendrichs figures it out and joins the staff next year and then we have a potpourri to choose from in the fifth spot. I think it comes down to PJ Walters/Deduno/Gibson. Although i believe the Twins will want Gibson in Rochester to start the season. By now, you've notice that the name of Nick Blackburn hasn't been mentioned. We can only hope it won't be in 2013. To summarize, I see a rotation of 1. FA 2. Baker, 3. Diamond, 4. Hendrichs, 5. Deduno or Walters. Your thoughts?
