Right, but we'd probably be talking about Hell freezing over or all those pigs flying around everywhere.
why? Why is this scenario so hard for the Twins' fans and FO to imagine/do?
One big FA signing, call up your best pitching prospect. Imagine if they had kept Span, had Sanchez instead of Pelfrey, and Gibson up nowish......you don't think Span's offense and Sanchez instead of Pelfrey gives you 5 more wins right now?
You don't think Sanchez and Gibson and Diamond as your top 3 is a legit starting rotation? Add another median FA next year, or maybe Wimmers or Baxendale or a trade target to move in front of Diamond?
It isn't that hard to fix this rotation, if you are willing to spend money.
