Mike Pelfrey has been everything the Twins wanted

The Twins need Mike Pelfrey to step up

On Friday, Major League Baseball handed Twins’ starter Ervin Santana an 80-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs, thus opening a spot in the rotation for Pelfrey. While losing a strong No. 2 starter in Santana is a pretty big punch-to-the-gut for a team right on the brink of turning the corner...
