    I think that the Twins will have a better team than they have had in the last few years but by how much is a question. Really depends on what they get out of the lineup because the rotation is...

    Good for him, I was hoping he'd step it up and earn a spot on the roster.

    So far I'm fairly pleased with the way the rotation is setting up. Maybe not going to make a big enough jump to contend...

    I'm sure both he and Gibson will see significant time in the majors. There are always injuries and pitchers who end up being disappointing.

    I think Hughes and Pelfrey both will hold a spot for...

    What I'm saying is unless they are the type of player that is going to be a big upgrade there is no reason to sign some 30+ year old guy that's maybe a marginal upgrade. I think Drew might be the...

    Looking that FA's still ont he market there really are no appealing LF, CF, DH or SS on the market that really makes a lot of sense. Most of what is left are guys in their 30's, many of which are not...

    There's still going to be a spot for one of the young guys to make the rotation unless they sign Arroyo. The fact of the matter is we don't have many prospects that are good enough to pitch in the...

    I'm not sure why there has been all the hate about resigning him. The guy was coming off of surgery and was clearly getting stronger as the season went on last year. I think it's a good move to get a...

    No, I like what they're doing so far.

    If the Twins can get the Pelfrey of the second half of the season he is worth signing, if they get the first half Pelfrey then I'd say no thanks.

    Sure, you can never have too many starters but if TR thought he had a good chance of getting some good starters out of the minors soon he wouldn't be looking to sign a 36 year old to a 3 year deal...
  11. Unless Arroyo is a complete trainwreck and can't...

    Unless Arroyo is a complete trainwreck and can't even make it in the rotation at all, if the Twins got two more years like his recent years that would be a pretty decent deal, IMO.
  12. Hard call, Arroyo has a much better track record...

    Hard call, Arroyo has a much better track record in recent years. Maybe you have a guy in Pelfrey that you can have for 2 years instead of three for Arroyo but Pelfrey is probably 5th starter or...
  13. I think the fact they are still looking for...

    I think the fact they are still looking for experienced starters tells you that they are not confident at all with what they have in them minors. If you sign Arroyo and already have Correia(if he...

    These are two different arguments.

    There is an argument about Correia and one about the rotation as a whole. He was right about Correia, not so much about the rotation but then Saunders and...

    You act like he had a huge dip in ERA, it was 4.18 last season. That's less than half a run.
    Granted, pitchers generally do better in the NL than the AL, but he's had 3 season better than last...

    Come on.

    TR is lucky because Correia turned out better than we expected?

    Also, Harden was clearly just taking a no risk chance that everyone new had a small chance of working out so it's not...

    As far as I know they don't have any major league ready prospect that will be ready to start this year.

    I agree with the mentoring angle, we have one of the best catchers in the last 10-15 years playing 1B and Steinbach was pertty good in his day as well.

    Pelfrey looked pretty good (for a 4-5th starter) in the last half of the season. Might be he was getting a little stronger as his arm was getting more live with more time.

    There will be a good amount of competition to get him, I think, but he would be a good pickup.

    AJ is one of those guys you hate when you play against them but love if he's on your team. He is a real jackass on the field a lot of times but I think the Twins need a little more fire and attitude...

    Not sure why people believe that given that he hasn't proven on the major league level that he's better than any of the guys with no options left.

    Yeah, I do as well. He was pretty solid for a 5th starter if you look at the second half of the season.

    Gibson still looks like he needs to marinate some and like you said, others are out of options. Every year you have starters get injured or end up being a trainwreck so I'm sure Gibson will have the...

    I'm guessing they don't sign anyone else for the rotation so I think that you may be right about the last two spots in the rotation. However, if Deduno looks good in ST this year he has to be a lock.
