Twins will seek 'affordable pitchers'
TRyan said this on 1500ESPN this morning but will 'monitor the big names'. No surprise here, so who are the affordable pitchers that the Twins type thinking will go after.
Pitt's FA Kevin Correia WILL be one they will at least pursue
32 yr old RH made 3m last yr
Over last 4 yrs (w/SD & Pitt each 2yrs)
46W (Twins value the old style stats) 43L 120gms 113starts
668IP (ave 168) 697hits 4.51 NL ERA 423k(5.7/9) 213bb(2.9/9) 90.5mph FB... -.0.7 3 yr WAR
one all star appearance in 2011
Holds runners well 31/53 successful (41.5% caught stealing)
Twins type of guy......yaaaaayyyyy!!!!!
laugh all ya want but they will also target Kevin Millwood as this yrs Marquis, Ortiz, Hernandez, Ponson type.
The soon to be 38yr old played for a million last yr in SEA.
28 starts in SEA in 12'
6W 12L 161IP 168hits 4.25ERA 107K (6k/9) 56bb (3.1bb/9) 1.39whip
His splits were even outside of Safeco.....4.34ERA on road
His 90.2mph fastaball is right at his 90.7 career mark.
He will definately help sell some season tix but will be a guy they target
DId say the 'bullpen needs too add some people too', so at least they have noticed that also!! Hello resigning Matt Capps
