I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

It's mind boggling to send Pavano out there if he's not 100%. His only value, minimal as it is, to this team is as trade bait. But really, this is an organization that hasn't been able to figure out how the DL process works for 2+ years, so this isn't really a surprise to me. I continue to be underwhelmed at their understanding of basic organizational strategy.
Do they even have a strategy, Mike? I sure can't tell what it is right now.
Only thing I can tell is the direction. Down. And staying down.
Lead the majors in ground ball %.
Hint: This is not the Metrodome. Slappy singles hitters don't get the turf hit any more. Yet the roster has multiple slappy hitters. Unreal.

Capps is wretched. That re-signing exemplifies the the abysmal incompetence of the entire organization. A rotation of Garza, Lohse, Santana, and Dickey would be a 1000% improvement on what they've got now. At least Doumit can hit.
You should be looking for any positive you can find for Capps. The organization has to already be sending out feelers around both leagues based on his 7/7 save conversion rate and new-found magic out pitch. If the Twins play it right they will find their very own, just-desperate-enough, GM like Billy Smith and land themselves a prospect before July 31.
