I'll be glad when these split squad games are over so the pitchers will get some innings against a few Big Leaguers more often.

Any Offense for the Twins yet? Looks like the heart of the order is what we hope to start the season with.

I've really liked how Jared Burton has pitched. I wonder why the Reds released him.

Yeah, Alex Burnett . . . good lord. Another prospect who should been kept at Rochester last year instead of sucking, pushing too much, and changing his approach before he was ready.

I like Jared Burton and Kyle Waldrop.

Burton has had injury issues the last two years. The Reds have good Bullpen depth so they decided to move on.

Shanewahl,

Wow we actually agree on something!! I totally agree Jared Burton has looked really good this spring. Give credit to Seth Stohs for predicting he was a solid minor league signing. I personally had never heard of the guy before this winter. Alex Burnett is 23 years old in the prime of his career and looks terrible. 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.

Anyone have a score update?

I think its 8-2. But I could be wrong.

Maloney fanned 3 in 1 1/3IP.
Take the best guys north.

Burton
Swarzak
???

Perkins
Duensing
????

Capps

Do the Twins go 3LHP? I'd like to see Gutierrez go, but have my doubts he'll have been consistent enough for management.

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.
