2010 - David Huff 2-10 14 14 1 0 0 0 75.1 95 56 50 13 32 36 5.97 1.69

Remember how we talked about Cleveland's starting pitcher on Friday night? Yeah. Huff falls into the same category: the dude we should smash but because of this will probably look like Cy Young. He barely strikes anybody out, he walks just as many (which is too many), he's not really deceptive and his stuff doesn't grade out that well. And yet he's beaten us before.

Huff will pitch to contact. Combine that fact with his walk rates, and chances are that the Twins will have ample opportunities to score this afternoon and lock down the series win. Let's just hope Huff realizes his role.

2010 - Brian Duensing 4-1 42 3 0 0 0 0 60.0 49 14 14 4 17 35 2.10 1.10

Speaking of a pitcher whose stuff doesn't grade out well...the difference is that Duensing gets results. In his three starts this year he's put together 17 innings of work, having allowed just six runs on 16 hits. His four walks in Tampa Bay early last week look like an aberration.

Put it together again, Brian. Let's start another winning streak today.
