Pitching Preview: Correia v. Buehrle

USA TODAY Sports

This is a pitching preview for tonight's game between the Twins and Blue Jays

I want Kevin Correia to pitch really good so the Twins win, obviously, but I really want him to pitch good so we can fleece a contending team of a good prospect as they look to beef up their rotation. So, yes, he will be knocked out in the third inning tonight, and it's my fault for bringing it up. I'm sorry.

2013 - Mark Buehrle 4-5 17 17 0 0 0 0 103.0 114 58 55 13 30 68 4.81 1.40


Hey, I remember this guy. If you look at the stats above, Correia has been just a little bit more effective in roughly the same amount of work. Even though he's not "Mark Buehrle" anymore, this still surprised me. Either way, he'll work fast and the game will probably be done in under three hours, which is why I can't hate him entirely, despite his nefarious work with the White Sox baseball franchise.

Game thread up next, turkeys!
