if he stays healthy, he will be an instant fan favorite and a main staple in that bullpen - lets just pray he stays healthy, as it would be so great to have a bullpen again that we can trust, although it will have to be more than just jz, but its a great start.....

An interesting gamble. The Twins are shaking the dice with the bullpen from Capps to Zumaya. This will either pay off big time or be a complete bust. I don't think there's going to be a middle ground here. Should be fun to watch.

IF he maintains his arm health, I'm not so sure that I wouldn't think of using him alternately with Capps as a closer. I'm not sold on Capps completely......not the ground-ball type of pitcher needed as a closer that pitches to contact. Maybe he has figured out how to put some drop on his pitches....

He is done! Another washed up has been signing by Ryan.

He can throw 100 mph for strikes? The big question is will Gardy and Anderson be able to break him of this and get him to pitch to contact and get that fastball down to 88-90 mph? If not he will never fit the Twins way.

At least he ain't a robot like the rest of the pitching staff.
