Bedard actually had a good year going until he ran into some bad luck in the second half of the season, masking underlying stronger peripherals, still would rather take him than Correia any day.
I'd still take a flyer on Francis for peanuts over Correia.
Jurrjens is an injury waiting to happen as are most of the new Twins acquisitions in the same boat. If he has dropped to the level of a prove-it deal, it might be worth the risk. I have a feeling that you're being just the slight bit facetious about your comparison of the Braves and Twins training staffs....
Thanks for the update on Braden, there's a guy like Harden, perhaps even a better low-risk high reward option, that I hope the Twins carefully keep monitoring on their radar. 2 years younger and potentially a lot more tread left on the tire.

I do think for the sake of Gotham City and the surrounding TDaily territory, it might be best to bring in Superman to re-rout that Jason Frasor Black Hole Thread to another dimension in time and space.

Francis wan't going to go anywhere when he played better in Colorado. In terms of pitchers and payroll, I am sure Ryan would swap Francis for Correia in a minute.
Jurrgens went from having a 92-93 FB to an 88. Something is wrong. Somebody differently medically needs to see that guy or Parker needs to get out his video and analyze like he did for Blackburn. If it is mechanics, Twins have two "mechanics" for pitchers. They better start him with the bullpen guy first.

The .500 line? Are you kidding me? We are going to go under the Mendoza line.
