    "Best bat" doesn't mean better than 4th/5th/ or even 10th best pitcher. Additionaly, my point is that I believe the Twins will select a pitcher based on the evidence of a large outlay of cash for...

    What timing for a trade! Why not wait until July or August when players like Burton are normally traded? G.L! Gardy has his 13 pitchers (anybody surprised?) there are plenty of others to pitch. ...

    Too shallow or too deep? Hindsight is 20/20. But, those HRs make Mastro's depth irrelevant.

    Pitch selection? What selection? Pelfrey has one pitch.

    Why would Pelfrey be "on a leash"? The Twins knew who he was when they signed him--and he is pitching the same as last year. It's not like Pelfrey had to arm-wrestle a contract away from other...

    A top SP isn't useless on the games he doesn't pitch. If said pitcher takes the ball every 5th game and pitches well and deep into his starts there is less need for relief pitchers. The bullpen is...

    Hmm, 3rd catcher who can sorta play OF, or real OF who can also play CF? Ok since he's not on the 40-man, kind of a problem for Mastro.
