Pi Press reporter Brian Murphy interviews Kevin Correia and gets his side of the story, but also isn't afraid to interject Twins fans concerns:
Pittsburgh banished Correia to the bullpen in August to make room for a prospect. He was chased after less than six innings in 27 of his 32 starts. Among NL starters, his ratio of 4.68 strikeouts per nine innings ranked 45th, with a groundball rate of 51.2 percent.
In other words, Correia pitches to contact and trusts his defense to make plays behind him.
"I hate pitch to contact," he said. "I'm not trying to have anybody hit anything I throw."
