I heard Silvana Colabello interviewed on the radio: "When he was in college he hit two home runs on my birthday."

It's because he loves you less now.

Twins thread!!!

The offense so far this season has been more than a surprise!   However, the pitching has been about as bad as expected.  They are currently 28th in MLB for team ERA, and Kyle Gibson is the only starter who has been remotely respectable (3.63 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, .259 BAA).  The relief pitching has pitched fairly well, but the concerning part of the current staff is the average # of innings per start (through 4 games):

Gibson - 5 7/12
Correia - 6 1/6
Nolasco - 5 11/12
Hughes - 5 1/4
Pelfrey - 4 11/12

3/5 of the starters are below the 2013 average with Pelfrey the clear loser of the bunch (in so many ways).  I don't see him lasting long, so the question is who will replace him.  Deduno is likely since he was in the race for the last starting position in ST.  If they look to AAA, Scott Diamond is the most experienced player, but he is getting lit up worse than Pelfrey.  Maybe they will take a risk and bring in AAAA pitcher Pino (currently bouncing in between SP & RP with the Red Wings).

Colabello is a great baseball story!

Well, great, it was mom's birthday and I hit a home run, and everyone was so excited that nobody noticed when she started having a stroke.
