In actual actuality, 100 ERA+ starters are slightly above average, relative to other starters, as the ERA+ figure includes relievers numbers.

 

Nah. Good relievers can end up with 200+ ERA+s. They can be off the charts.

#5s typically don't pitch full seasons, nor do many #4s.

 

exactly.....there are twice as many 4s and 5s as 1-3s......

I remain hopeful on Buxton and Sano.....but I'd not bet the franchise on them.

I believe that was Snepp’s point.

Ok, personally I say the Twins sign the guy and then just go play some baseball. Only the Man Upstairs know what will happen, I just love baseball and am ready for the season to start.

 

But that's just me... and I seem to remember my folks saying something about paint chips and a van down by the river???

Your faith in Dave St Peter is touching but misplaced.
