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.

    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
    • What a fun election cycle, first Trump dismantles the Republican party and may take them to even lower lows by winning. Then even more surprising is the Democrats totally imploding all on their own and losing to Trump in the process. No hollywood script can compete with this kind of crazyness, just happy to be alive to witness all of this mess and hope there is much much more to come. Something tells me I won't be disappointed, I am almost excited for the next one, 4 years ago I never would have thought that in my wildest dreams.
    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
