    WAR? What is it good for?

Suddenly the Twins have a lot of walking wounded. Hicks, Willingham, Florimon, and Perkins all were on the bench at least in part because of injuries. With consecutive short starts and an extra inning game in the past week, I wonder if someone might get disabled and another pitcher brought up.

It seems that a Gibson promotion to start on Monday is not in the cards, but perhaps recalling a reliever might help the short bullpen.

Maybe it's just that time of year. Now we're playing everyday instead of getting 4 snow-out/rain-outs. Unfortunately Hernandez looks to keep starting for now. Maybe we could move him to the bullpen and call up a starter? (of course, somebody else must go down, I'm not sure who though)
