Twins Ace?

16 posts in this topic

Next year? How about opening day starter for the playoffs! I would say you start Baker, you want someone with good control.

They will make it, besides an ace also means "best pitcher", not just the opening day starter next season, but that is the best definition.

And with all that being said, Slowey is our hottest pitcher right now. They all look good, just need the run support and defense to make the playoffs.

All 5 starters have sub-4.00 ERA right now. For the first time, I really don't know who our 4th and 5th guys would be. I'd have to put Liriano and Perkins in the top 3. Toss up between Barker and Slowey, followed by Blackburn. Remember 2006 when Liriano and Radke went down? We had Santana and then a couple of 4th and 5th-guy type left. If we could just get a reliable set-up guy back. Just think if Neshek comes back solid next year. 2 WS in the ROW!!!!

I hate to say this but I can see Smith trading one of starters this offseason.

If Liriano can get control of more of his pitches he would be the starter with no questions, but your starter will be the pitcher with the best control, Baker! Liriano has the best potential to be the best, but he needs to have all of his pitches going where he is trying to throw them!

I think they may start Baker, Slowey or Perkins but if it were me I'd start the guy who has Won 13 out of his last 14 games and has an ERA around 2.00 in that stretch.

I like Baker and FL. Take Baker becasue he seems to have more control and go deeper into a game. Also- Baker was one hitter away and one walk aaway from a perfect game/no hitter last year at home agst KC..BUT FL when on,, thou not as good after the TJ, is still very good.
