Who cares? It's Anthony Swarzak. Just one of the Twins many bad pitchers.

Twins by themselves could keep the Mayo clinic in business. Never have I heard of so many injuries and illnesses come out of a non contact sport.

Swarzak is a decent long-man out of the bullpen. Looking at him as a possible starter? Only on the Twins' current rotation- made up of a number three, number four, and three number five starters- can he project to be a Number Five starter.

Face it, the Twins are going to be pretty bad this year. How Terry Ryan can even suggest they are going to sneak up on people with a straight face is insulting to the Twins fans. Either Terry Ryan can no longer judge talent, or he is the worlds best liar.

Nice numbers! Boy, we'll really miss him! Good grief, that's what lands you in the major leagues? Sad, very sad he's even on the roster let alone vying for a spot in the rotation!

National Federation of High School Sports recently report that baseball was among the safest sports, lowest rate of injury, ankle sprains the most frequent, shoulder injuries follow. I am going to assume that the lower rate of injury does not include the Minnesota Twins Wresling/Baseball combo sport! You get paid to play a great game and you can't refrain from being a goofball, his makes my head hurt worse than Swarzak's ribs!

At least he didn't use the old "knuckle pushups" excuse.
