And four bench players to back up a bunch of guys who couldn't stay healthy if you froze them in carbonate. What could go wrong?
If M&M/Span are healthy enough to add ten wins over 2011, that gets the Twins to a pythag of 95 losses in 2012.
On second thought, why not audition half the journeyman relievers baseball and lose a couple extra games due to limited bench options? It's already pretty much a lost season.
8 relievers with 4 starters. It's still 12 pitchers. Of course that is generally gratuitous, but maybe not for April. We'll see what they do after that.
