The bottom line is none of this is really hurting the Team. It cost the owners some money but that is the extent of the problem. Next year, use him in long relief or 7th inning RP or not at all. I would be a lot more worried about Mauer and Nolasco. The Pelfrey problem really is not a problem.
I like Pelf. In Spring Training, he made a point to sign autographs. He talked at length to the kids. I am hopeful they found what was wrong with his arm and that he will provide a backup rotation option next year.
I know Pelfrey being on the DL alleviates some of my nerves.....
This should be great news for the Twins. The longer Pelfrey is not pitching again for the Twins, the better the chances for the team to be more successful and the better the opportunity for Meyer and May to join the team. IF the Twins miraculously play themselves into the playoffs, there is only one starter on the team right now that I can see helping the Twins advance, and that is Hughes. Gibson has some hope. Nolasco and Correia, making every team a whole team of .310 hitters......... is not something to look forward to. Pelfrey may be a nice guy, and that is great, but helping the team win is the most important.
