No, the CHEAP way to get good pitching is to draft a ton of young arms and get lucky. You can get good pitching on the market. The Twins have drafted a ton of pitchers and pretty much all of them had to get TJ surgery and kind of floundered.

As an aside, I wonder how far away we are from just pre-emptive TJ surgery. I wonder if they can open up a relatively healthy pitcher and add a second ligament in there for strength and durability.

Well one things for sure...Duensing is not an answer at starter (obviously).

Annnnd the Twins just now place Span on the DL. You honestly can't make it up at this point. Gleeman:

Twins had great pitching when Santana was their ace. Before and after, not so much. I mean, how much can you blame Anderson when his "ace" right now is Scott Diamond?

Why was Morneau on waivers?
He is a major part of the problem in how this team gets built, as he doesn't have any hunger beyond the regular season. His job is done once the regular season is done. Make the playoffs? Mission accomplished, now let's go golfing.

That is the attitude that has brought this team to where it is now. They were winning divisions, so didn't feel the need to make the team better, and now it's come crashing down.

I get CBS Sports Net. In fact, I get it in HD. Somehow I don't get ESPN in HD though.
