    I'd love it if Gardy had the balls to send Nolasco to the bullpen for awhile. Send a message to the entire team.

    The Nolasco deal is currently making the Pelfrey re-signing look like a steal. If you are going to get a near 6.00 ERA, don't overpay for it.

    Small sample Nolasco entertainment.

    1.000 OPS allowed to batters leading off an inning.

    1.067 OPS allowed in high leverage situations.

    .545 OPS allowed in the 4th inning!

    .542 OPS allowed to #6 hitters!


    Obviously he needs to pitch more 4th innings, against more #6 hitters in the lineup.

    Does Nolasco have options? If not, bullpen. If so, send him down. No more scholarships.....

    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Pelfrey deal gets the edge as he's no longer pitching.

    Did anyone think it was possible for him to be this bad? Nothing in his time time Miami suggested it. I honestly hope there's some undiagnosed injury or something...

    And the Yankees just tagged up from 1st to 2nd on Sam 'Pop-Gun' Fuld. Ugh. Who must we sacrifice for a real CF'er?

    This game may prove to be responsible for a spate of self-asphyxiation reports, and not even of the erotic variety.

    The Twins have accumulated some contracts that seem likely to be burdens for a while -- Nolasco, Pelfrey, and Mauer come to mind. I guess that happens with a lot of teams, but it also seems that some teams (like the A's) are able to minimize this.

    There is no such thing as a bad one-year contract.

    Look at these as a series of one-year contracts.

    If you could be the owner of the Twins for one day, and could fire the GM, would you do it? If so, who would you try to hire as the new GM?

    I think I fixed Fuld's mediocre throwing arm.
