#62 / Pitcher / Chicago White Sox
Jan 24, 1989
|2013 - Jose Quintana||6-4||24||24||0||0||0||0||143.1||137||64||59||16||42||116||3.70||1.25|
The Twins roughed up Quintana five days ago, tagging him for five runs and two dingers in just five innings of work in their 5-2 victory. This is not a mirage: Minnesota has owned Quintana, who has a 9.15 ERA against them in four career starts.
#30 / Pitcher / Minnesota Twins
Aug 24, 1980
|2013 - Kevin Correia||8-8||24||23||0||0||0||0||133.1||161||68||68||19||32||77||4.59||1.45|
Correia un-regressed (gressed?) on Sunday, hurling seven shutout innings against the Whities. Considering the Twins are on the hook for $5 million worth of Kevin Correia in 2014, it would be very nice if this recovery continued. Caveat #1: it's the White Sox, who are just shit. Caveat #2: if he gets shelled, hoo boy.
Speaking of sunk costs: Nick Blackburn, 2013's highest-paid pitcher on the entire goddamn roster, is undergoing knee surgery for a torn meniscus today. This is more than likely how his Minnesota career ends.
What we're saying is: Twinkie Town DOES NOT ENCOURAGE DRINKING, but we understand, if you're looking at the Minnesota Twins' starting rotation options, why you do it. C'mere buddy. It's gonna be okay. It's not your fault.
