Ryan, Gray, López, Maeda, Mahle. Ober in AAA. LET'S GO!!!!!
I'm on board.
I know we re-signed Pagan but Bullpen should be a strength if we don't overuse guys.
You have Ober and Winder plus Alcala hopefully healthy. That is three more arms in the pen.
I wouldn't be surprised if Winder and Ober start the year in the Twins bullpen instead of AAA. Rockhead likes relievers who can go multiple innings, so he can pull starters after 4 innings.
Ober has nothing more to prove in the minors. He’s shown for two partial seasons that he is major league ready. He’s 26. His time is now. I agree, If there’s no room for him in the starting rotation, make him a ‘4th or 5th inning starter’ when the starter is exhausted after 70 pitches. We apparently need guys like that.
Yep, the days when starting pitchers were men are over.
