I can easily replace the word "Twins" in your first sentence with "Yankees" and it's still accurate. Pineda and the front office left the starting staff in deep doo-doo. I begged and pleaded for the team to sign Patrick Corbin last year, but that was never going to happen. The only chance they have to get a true #1 to develop through their organization or find someone who used to be good that's making a comeback (Johnny Cueto, Carlos Carasco, etc.).The Twins are a flawed team. Shaky starting pitching and below-average defense.
That flawed team still managed to win 101 games in the regular season, and break the MLB home run record.
This is still a work in progress. It will be interesting to see what moves Falvine make in the off-season. They need a #1 starter. (because I do not believe Berrios is a #1 starter on a championship team.)
