    After a while, you run out of things to say about how bad Pelfrey has pitched this year.

    Watching on gameday here and there. Looks like he's working up in the zone again?

    This is the year Pelfrey puts it all together. It usually takes two years to fully recover from Tommy John surgery.

    How long do you let Pelf and KC give the team no chance at winning 2 out of 5 days.

    Deduno has followed Pelfrey in 4 of 5 starts. The one game he didn't...Deduno pitched the day prior. Why don't we just switch their roles?

    Dunno about Correia but I'll be mighty disappointed if Pelfrey makes another start in May.

    Because Big Pelf battles out there. Every time out. You gotta respect that.

    Thought Deduno might be rusty with nine days between appearances. No such problem that inning.

    I think this is the moment when every Twins fan should be praying for a dominant performance over four innings from Deduno.

    At that point, I don't see how the Twins roll out Pelfrey in five days while Deduno continues in the pen.

    Yeah, battling more than makes up for the 8.00 ERA.

    If they want to, I can go out there and battle. I will do it for the league minimum.

    Way up. When he's not up, he's missing outside.

    Now let's not sell Pelfrey short, his ERA is 7.99, that's a huge difference. Insert joke here.

    Maybe I'm old school, but I respect a pitcher that doesn't want to show up the batter by making him miss. Only stat stuffers go for the strikeouts.

    It's quite pathetic.

    I really like the way Hughes has pitched. He has been fun to watch.

    Gibson has shown signs that he could be really solid as a #4. He has had a couple bad luck situations in his 2 'rough' starts that will happen from time to time, but may have caused waves for him.

    Nolasco has an extremely long leash. I'm okay with him working it out, he has the track record to tell you it will get turned around. Plus, he has like a contract for a while and quite a bit of money.

    Correia and Pelfrey have been awful. I was pissed when we signed Correia last year for two years and I was pissed this year when we re-upped Pelfrey for 2 years.

    Think about it, how much money were we short on a couple guys like Garza? 6 million? I wish we would've tacked on the money we handed to Pelfrey on our offer and at least it would've given us someone entertaining to watch suck.

    This team, with all it's shortcomings, has character.
