I sure hope the three bullpen guys are Jared Burton, Kyle Waldrop, and Carlos Gutierrez. However, I have been very vocal about team taking a chance on Michael Wuertz. I would love to see that happen.
    Yes, if we agree on something, it must be true. Seven will go north and they will probably need 12 solid relievers for the year, barring major health problems. Burton, Waldrop, and Gutierrez should certainly be in that top 12.

    I would like to see Gutierrez given the closer role at Rochester to see what he can do. I almost wish that Swarzak wouldn't have fooled people last year. I don't think he is very good, and seems to me to be a AAAA pitcher. But oh well. At this point I could see two of the following breaking with the Twins: Doyle, Waldrop, Maloney, Manship, and Wise. This would round out the bullpen with Capps, Perkins, Duensing, Burton and Swarzak.

    The other three should provide good depth at Rochester. I would like to see Burnett as the setup man for Gutierrez.
