    Bert is about two beers away from actually saying what he'd like to say about Pelfrey with no filter and some FCC violations.

    Pelfry is hitting 89-91 with the fastball which works if you're a crafty lefty. But he is a not so crafty righty and the results are kind of ugly. I don't know many crafty righties, maybe Brian he's crafty he can get by on his grit and guile.

    I have a thought. The current process is to bring in Deduno in the 3rd or 4th inning, down 4 runs every time Peflrey starts. Why not just start Deduno and skip the giving up the 5 runs part?

    How many more games of this will you people with tvs have to watch? I feel bad for you. I only have to check the box score occassionally. I don't have to actually SEE it. Is it better or worse for your eyes than catching your parents....
    Lighten up Francis....

    I remember when we had a 2-0 lead. It doesn't seem that long ago

    The upside to this game is that I don't see how the Twins give Pelfrey another start. He's not even sitting at 91mph today. He's hovering at 89-90 and he's an AWFUL pitcher at that speed.

    Little late for Deduno now, I so much agree with you Tobi, start Deduno and if you need a reliever bring in Pelphrey in a lost game, instead you bring in one of your best pitchers in a lost game...........but I can hear Gardy now, we really didn't want to use Deduno in the first game, cuz we know Johnson cant go far in the second.......Gotta save pitchers for the AAA guy , when Pelphrey should be a NOwhere guy.

    Well, some pitchers have personal catchers. Pelfrey has a personal reliever. It's innovation.

    Just release him already. I don't want him starting. I don't want him in the pen. I don't want him taking starts in AAA. If the Twins are dead set on keeping him, he can be a BP pitcher for low A ball or something.

    Agreed! Hopefully this showing will be the motivating factor to get Deduno starting over Pelfrey.

    While we grind our teeth through another dismal Pelfrey Start, Don't forget to make your under/over prediction for May. http://twinsdaily.com/showthread.php...May-Over-Under Who is going to get an attaboy
