Right now, looking at results, Dobnak is lapping the field in the competition for 5th starter, isn't he?

Kirilloff has been looking really good. Hopefully he continues doing well and Eddie can give the Twins a solid first half so he can boost that trade value up.

Chalmers looked good. His curveball is definitely one of the best in their minor league system. Fastball sat 95...with command that he hasn’t always had in the past. That’s his biggest question mark. He could end up being the biggest surprise for the Twins. Most likely starts out in a Pensacola, but Rochester is probably only 3-4 good starts away.

Thanks for the summary!

Yet another source of optimism.

Dobnak seems to really want that 5th spot.

Cardinals. 

 

I like the way Dobbs moves his stuff around the zone. Almost all of his pitches tail down, some very hard down. They look hittable until just before they get there, then they fall off the table. Lotsa ground balls, one popup where the guy swung radically downward...

 

We are watching a man become a horse.

The door opened. A woman screamed. Someday, my mom would learn to knock.
