Starting over: After awful season by Twins rotation, experience and competition has increased | StarTribune.com

"I kind of read a little about how they don't think Correia or I were sexy pick-ups, I guess because we don't really strike a lot of guys out," Pelfrey said on Saturday at the team's annual fan festival. "Any way you want to look at it, whether it's a groundout or strikeout, as long as you're getting people out, we'll take it."

So Pelfrey is on track to pitch post injury for spring training and to be ready Opening Day? That blows my mind.

131 starts last year... Were made by Pitchers with an ERA over 5... That's staggering...

We have options this year in theory. This has to be an improvement. Doesn't it?

I can't get over this timeline Pelfrey is purpotedly on. Ready to go in February? He had TJ 2 weeks after Gibson did.

edit: Baker, not Gibson. Oops. FWIW he is hoping to be ready on opening day also.

Pelfrey is playing for 2014, which may or may not be a plus!

It nice to have some pitchers on make good contracts, maybe one of them will actually make good.

I don't like thinking that our frustration is making it to their ears, but Pelfrey is wrong, all outs are not created equal.

There are plenty of reasons to think Correia and Pelfrey were not sexy pickups that do not relate to their strikeout numbers...

Who ever the fact checker is at the "Trib" that let this slip through needs to be fired asap.

That's the problem, the fact checker and all the editors already have been fired.
