2012 - Brian Duensing 1-6 37 4 0 0 0 0 53.2 58 30 29 6 16 31 4.86 1.38

Duensing has made four starts this season, worth just 13.1 innings and accumulating a 10.13 ERA. Opponent OPS in those innings? 1.144. Brian already has a difficult assignment in essentially taking over for Liriano, and if he doesn't put up a non-terrible performance this afternoon then sane fans should probably head for the hills.

2012 - Ubaldo Jimenez 8-9 20 20 0 0 0 0 116.0 117 67 64 17 69 88 4.97 1.60

Remember Jimenez's 2010 season? Yeah, the Indians pretend not to remember it either. Just to put the Liriano deal into some perspective, I think it's fair to say that he hasn't been the pitcher Cleveland's front office thought he'd be. This is a much bigger deal than whether or not the Twins made a good deal with the White Sox.
