    The Minnesota Twins, your 29th ranked MLB rotation

    Based on ERA. After stringing together several solid starts, the Twins' rotation has now passed the Diamonbacks with a 5.32 ERA, good for 29th in baseball.

    Progress!

    For the record, last year's rotation posted a 5.26 ERA. It's strange that somehow this rotation has managed to be worse than last year's, though that's incredibly unlikely to continue.

    Hopefully this past week has been an indication of what we are going to be getting out of the starters going forward.

    I don't know if they'll continue to be this good but they should be serviceable.

    For the first time since 2010, when any Twins starter takes the mound the team has a legitimate chance to win the game.

    It's been far too long since we could say that as fans.

    I agree completely!

      Twins starters have a 1.84 ERA over last four games.


      If May could continue somewhat in this vein (okay, add even a run or 2 to that combined ERA), it would be a significant improvement.

      They can't change April. They can improve for May and later.

    Moving on up!

    April was obviously an oddity. On the same token, we realistically can't expect an ERA 1.84 through May either. The starting staff's true identity lies somewhere inbetween - and given what we've seen over the past three years, an ERA in the middle of the pack would be a VERY welcome sight!
