    Closer than I'd like but I don't see how you start Pelfrey five days from now.
    I can think of, like, 11,000,000 reasons why the persons responsible for signing MP to a two year deal would want to cross their fingers, send him out there again, and hope for the best.

    Not saying he should get another shot or that the money should be a factor, but it's hard to see the Twins ignoring that aspect altogether.

    And if they need to rationalize it they can blame today's performance on crappy cold weather and defensive miscues. LA's defensive miscues, if necessary. Too long between innings for MP.

    Just got back from the game. Thank goodness they installed those heaters that emit heat because I might have become frozen. I keep ending up going to Pelfrey's starts and they've all been bad. Who's idea was it to give him a 2 year extension? Ugh. I have more reasons not to go to any more Twins games.

    These lines seem pretty different to me, especially if you focues on strikeouts and # of pitches. If Deduno had been starting all year and had that line after 4 innings you'd expect to get another 2 innings out of him. If he doesn't give up any runs in those two innings you've got a quality start. Pelfrey's line on the other hand just looks awful.

    Of course assuming another two run-free innings from Deduno is optimistic, but his line doesn't look awful to me, just kinda bad.

    Either my joke wasn't funny, my sarcasm wasn't obvious, or something is wrong with me. I don't expect a response on this.

    Like I said in a different post, I really like the way Hughes is pitching.

    A walk, a couple errors, and several passed balls, and we are right back in this.

    I thought the cold weather was supposed to be an advantage for us against a California team.

    This game has been a showcase for the two guys (Pelfrey and Burton) that should be pitching in the independent leagues right now. Burton is 10 for 10 (10 appearances, 10 runs allowed) ...

    A walk, a hit and a sac fly and we're further behind, awesome.

    It did. We held them under a dozen runs, didn't we?

    Hope so. If nothing else, simple probability tells me that Yasel Puig owes us one more entertaining squirrel-on-busy-highway baserunning gaffe.
