    Same here, although it wouldn't have surprised me if Nolasco had more success initially, an opinion that's difficult to admit at this point. Hughesie's K rate will probably decline some, but so will the ERA if he pitches anything like he has been so far.

    Two bench players this weekend means one of the former National League pitchers will pinch-hit for Florimon this weekend, right? Correia? Pelfrey before he's DLed or DFAed?

    I was under impression that the corresponding news was Hicks going on the 7-day DL, but perhaps I am wrong. These roster moves are fun to watch. You never know what's going to happen next. Let's get a 10-man bullpen!!!

    Official active roster has been updated here:
    http://www.mlb.com/team/roster_active.jsp?c_id=min

    Pretty surreal to see 14 pitchers, 3 catchers, 6 infielders, and only 2 (!) outfielders listed (even if one of those 3 catchers is being deployed as a sub-replacement-level corner outfielder).

    Gardyisms

    I think we need to make a list of Gardyisms and their true meanings. For example:

    His stuff is electric = He has no idea where it's going and neither do I.

    The ball is coming out of his hand really well = It looks like a beach ball to the hitter.

    He's a good clubhouse guy = He buys me dinner after the games when I play him.

    Surreal is not the word I would've chosen.

    I live in Kentucky and I realize I really need to start going to some University of Kentucky baseball games. It seems like half the Twins minor organization has played there at some point.

    On another point, really excited to see Darnell get a shot of the Big club! Hopefully he sticks!

    Especially when your team just had 3 consecutive days off?
    I don't think there is another manager in the league who could have Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday off, yet manage to completely wipe out his 8 relief pitchers by Thursday.

    Though Deduno is no lower than the third best starter on the team *if* (and it's a big if) he can stay healthy.
    Yep. And Hughes will remain #! until Meyer can get himself called up and then established. And Deduno is highly unlikely to ever stay healthy, which makes him difficult, or even a waste the time to rank.

    Yes. And the "terrific corner OF! label" for Hermann didn't even make it to the freshness expiration date. It's hard to see how someone who pieced this together was once Manager of the Year. I guess they punted on makng a decision on Pelfrey, then (this was supposed to be Decision Day)? Wouldn't the logical move have been to DL Pelfrey and replace him with Darnell, since even if you wanted Pelfrey to ptich, he's unavailable until Tuesday at the earliest? Down to just two potential positional moves available for the next few days.....preposterous.
