    Was thinking the same thing. It's possible to make a good trade and have it not work out, and so is the reverse.

    It goes without saying that it's too early to throw in the towel on May, but it is on Worley too. He had two good years before getting injured and struggling last year, and he's just 26. He's been brutal in spring training and was only ok in AAA last year, but the Twins had better figure out a way to hang on to him.

    That's an interesting conclusion

    There was plenty of anti-Worley sentiment going back to when he was stinking it up with the Twins last year, let alone after looking mediocre at AAA and having an abysmal spring. I get it.

    But the Twins committed to two guys, Correia and Pelfrey, who will almost certainly never be part of a competitive Twins rotation. And they're apparently still entertaining the notion of using Deduno or Diamond in the 5th spot. Those 4 guys have had 4 good seasons in the past 3 years, combined. Worley has two. And none of their best seasons in that span were as good as his best.

    Are you sure? I thought his three pitches were roped single, rocket double, and long HR.

    Come on now, he tried. But then the ump called a late strike at 3-1.

    Arcia's? He should have just kept running. He made it look harder than it was.
