The Twins minor league system is horrific if there is no one to bring up to replace Marquis or Blacky.
Bill Smith, Terry Ryan, and the entire scouting department should be ashamed!
I dont think the whole minor league system is horrific. The pitching is bad but we have some good bats down there who will help us out down the road (a lot of them were up with the Twins last year) Yes, it would be nice to be able to call up a starter or two to replace these guys. But we already have Hendricks in the rotation and if it wasnt for an injury Gibson would be here too. Scott Diamand pitched ok last year and is off to a good start in AAA.
Pavano, Liriano, Baker could all be gone next year. Hopefully at least 2 of those 3. I'd like to see them pick up a legit starter in the offseason and bring up Gibson if he's ready.
