Nobody. Ponson is going to turn it on.

Turn what on? The grill at McDonald's? That's where he's heading.

I'll say Slowey.

Here's a nice little update on a couple of the young guns. I have to believe that at the rate Slowey's pitching, Ponson is only one or two more lousy starts away from packing his bags.

I'm not sure how much more Slowey needs to prove.

I voted Slowey. I think he has the least risk at this point, and I would like to see that after the Ponson fiasco. Garza's potential intrigues me, but I'd give the nod to Slowey and let Garza develop his other pitches down at AAA for another month or so.

Touche' :lol: :lol:



I think its Slow-like Radke unless we're playing the Yankees. Call up Baker for that series.

After tonight(or sometime very soon) I have a feeling Mr. Ponson well be headed for triple a and then Garza will get the call up.

Ponson has pitched well enough to stay for a while. Also, I like the Baker vs. Yankees theory. He ownes them.

What? You don't like 7 innings, 1 earned run from your #5 starter? Good thing you aren't a GM

i dont think the twins will bring up Baker after the really Shaky season he had last year, Perkins is more of a reliever, Garza is good, should get called up and id love to see Slowley come up.

Perkins made 2 relief appearances in 4 years of college, and no relief appearances in the minor leagues. The only place he has ever been a reliever is for the Twins. He is a starter.

Baker. He has the most major league experience, give him the first shot. He slumped some last year, but who hasn't heard of the sophomore slump. If it doesn't work out in a couple starts, we have plenty of bullets to reload.
