In today's Baseball Prospectus, Ben Lindbergh writes a fascinating comparison of the way that the Oakland A's and the Tampa Bay Rays have succeeded this year. Very relevant to the Twins - especially the difficulty and high cost of finding pitching success thru free agency. Link is http://www.baseballp...articleid=18128 , although it may be behind some wall.

That is why the Twins need to make a deal this offseason with a pitching rich, hitting poor club. You can win with great pitching and so-so hitting. You cannot win with bad pitching or a horrible defense(which is why I expect Detroit to fail early if they even make the playoffs)
