Twins Trade former fringe prospect Duke Welker for a LH schulb.

Welker , 27 , was dealt for a fringe lefty-starter Kris Johnson , 29 Today.

In doing, so the Twins get an emergency starter, if things get ugly...

Man, seems like a lot of confidence in the bullpen to let Welker go for almost nothing.

    Seems 'schulb' is a little harsh.
    He is, at this point, a better ballplayer than at least 99% of the readers of Twins Daily, so you've kind of insulted all of us.

    And you did it in so few words!
    Efficiency rocks!

    At least Welker throws hard.

    Want more?

    PJ Walters (K.C.) , Liam Hendriks, Andrew Albers, Pat Dean (in a small sample)

    What do those 4 pitchers all have in common? Their AAA #'s are all GREATER than Kris Johnson's. I hope i'm waaay wrong about Johnson, but Scott Diamond is a better pitcher and likely even Albers.
