Quote of the Day

Ben the Professor, from The Gold Seat, on the Twins' pitching woes:

The 2007 Twins starting pitching staff will likely determine if the Twins make the playoffs or not in the increasingly competitive AL Central. Boof Bonser, Matt Garza, Carlos Silva, Scott Baker, Ramon Ortiz and Sidney Ponson are likely the 6 pitchers realistically competing for 4 starting spots. If I had to guess right now I would say that Bonser will step into the #2 spot behind Santana, followed by Carlos Silva (#3), Sidney Ponson (#4), and Matt Garza (#5). This means that much of our hope lies in the arm of a man with a Ricky Williams legal history, Pat Williams belly and Serena Willams rack--Sidney Ponson.
In the Sporting News' preseason power rankings, they have the Twins #1, which is totally ridiculous considering how unsettled their pitching is. I'm guessing the season will start off like the last couple- a horrible April and May, until they get rid of the ineffective veterans and play the kids. Ponson is clearly the Tony Batista of '07.
