Context is significant: it's silly to rank a SP, rank-unqualified, among others that are rank-qualified. IP, performance are fundamental.
Trevor May's IP out of the 'pen are fewer than those out of the rotation (7 vs. 80.1 IP) but his splits between RP/SP are ugly.
I just voted to send Brian Dozier to the 2015 #ASG! Help him win the Final Vote!… #VoteDozier
Please, #VoteDozier to the #ASG. It's an awkward defense having to explain his elite production for #MNTwins.
Pelfrey last 6 starts: 32.1 IP 23 ER 18/14 K/BB 6.40 ERA .363 (!) BAA Trevor May last 6 starts: 30.2 IP 11 ER 30/9 K/BB 3.23 ERA .275 BAA

.@VikingsSBChamps Even if Pelfrey's next outing is a disaster, I'm not convinced May will start soon given the timing of the All-Star break.
Trevor May will need the #MNTwins to start him many more times this season for a real shot at the AL ROY.…
#MNTwins after 82 games: vs. current .500+: 16-21 (.432) vs. current <.500: 27-18 (.600)

'15: #Astros' Chris Carter: .195/.311/.401, 15 HR, 40 RBI, 34 R 0.2 WAR #MNTwins' Joe Mauer: .275/.343/.389, 5 HR, 41 RBI, 32 R 0.1 WAR
Though not appearing for #MNTwins as regularly in '15 as other top K/9 arms May and Milone: Ricky Nolasco, in 7 starts, holds a 7.71 K/9.
Whenever hearing Jarrod Dyson's 'that's what speed do' I wonder what the future global language will be like.
The Twins are 2-15 in the last 17 games where Aaron Thompson has made an appearance.

.@Brandon_Warne Chad Bettis, #2xRP in many cases, also. I like the pick.
Paul Molitor has to keep Joe Mauer in the two spot of the lineup for the #MNTwins after today, right?
I'm half joking in my last tweet, but Duensing did have a killer performance against the Rays on the 4th of July a few years back.
What was your favorite Brian Duensing moment?
Upon Trevor May moving to the 'pen, among regular starters who've pitched for #MNTwins in '15: Tommy Milone has the highest K/9 at 6.03.
I'm not surprised, but also not a fan of this #MNTwins' decision:…
.@fran_the_man @Plouffe24Fan Both are performing near potential, and: Trevor May w/ 1.7 WAR as a SP, Glen Perkins w/ 0.9 WAR as a closer
.@fran_the_man @Plouffe24Fan The time for #MNTwins to supplement the 'pen w/ a good SP, like #Tigers did w/ Scherzer, is in the postseason.
.@fran_the_man @Plouffe24Fan Trevor May's showing the best pitch control of his career. The 'pen changes the approach he's progressed w/.
.@fran_the_man Trading for a reliever seems ideal--Tyler Clippard, maybe. Tampering w/ Trevor May is then totally unnecessary. #MNTwins
Trevor May gets more IP as a starter than as a reliever but IP value vs. high-leverage value is subjective. #MNTwins…
.@fran_the_man M. Pelfrey doesn't dominate like T. May. More of May's 3.20 FIP, 7.95 K/9, 2.02 BB/9 increase #MNTwins' odds at postseason.
I've seen it suggested or supposed, but favoring Mike Pelfrey to Trevor May as a starter when Ervin Santana returns is idiotic. #MNTwins
Hey look, the #Vikings are 1st in the #NFL in something and it's not arrest related! #FastestWRs

I was enamored by Max Scherzer returning to the National League, but this is just silly. #Nationals
Max Scherzer is the best pitcher in baseball.
.@mschlegel34 @VikingsSBChamps @r_mack I agree. Parmelee's best attributes (above average power and average OF def.) can be easily replaced.
.@VikingsSBChamps @r_mack I'd bet below league average. Parmelee's career .392 SLG is underwhelming w/ limited room in OF or at 1B. #MNTwins
Now with the #Orioles, he's batting .314/.382/.443 at AAA. #MNTwins…
.@r_mack Maybe the #MNTwins will bring up those power arms you mentioned as Arcia, Pinto start playing the field.
.@r_mack @VikingsSBChamps Oliveros has been stretched out recently, I notice. Odd.
.@VikingsSBChamps I prefer #MNTwins to try Lester Oliveros over one of Brian Duensing or Aaron Thompson. Neither are dominant.
Paul Molitor only has 72 ejections to go before he catches Ron Gardenhire.

Lester Oliveros this year at AAA through 30.1 IP: 2.67 ERA (2.22 FIP) 1.19 WHIP 11.27 K/9 (Down from '14) .342 BABIP What gives? #MNTwins
Mauer in 2014 Batting 2nd: .299/.379/.396 Batting 3rd: .261/.347/.354 47 starts in 2-hole. 71 starts in 3-hole.

#MNTwins had expectations for Aaron Hicks, also, so maybe Mark Appel is a Twin in that scenario?…
.@trtx84 @EGrabouski Hard to downplay Johan Santana's pricey burnout and Carlos Gomez's affordable 20-or-so WAR since. #Mets mistake, too.
.@trtx84 @EGrabouski Considering Dozier was an 8th-round pick, #MNTwins deserve credit for sticking with him, though he remains underrated.
.@trtx84 @EGrabouski Could be, but more obvious is that Gomez was in his early twenties; #MNTwins had to figure better days ahead for him.
.@trtx84 @EGrabouski The #MNTwins would've been the clear winner in the Johan Santana trade had they held onto Carlos Gomez.
From what I've gathered, Ryan Pressly could be the odd man out as Jorge Polanco joins #MNTwins. That surprises me.
Maybe I'm a non-traditionalist, but the #Royals going to their bullpen betters their chance for a no-hitter and the win.
The behind-the-plate, mid-pitch camera shot seems overly done during Twins telecasts.
