Here Comes Garza

La Velle Neal of the Star Trib talked to Matt Garza on his call up from Rochester.

Garza is saying all the right things now. But there is little doubt that he considers himself more talented than some of the other AAA call-ups. He's probably right.

Garza is being given a golden opportunity, likely starting the second game of the double-header against the floundering White Sox a week from now.

By the end of the year, the Twins could be looking at a very tough rotation, with Santana, Liriano, Silva, Slowey and Garza/Baker.

The veteran pitchers the Twins thought they needed? Ponson is not in the league, and Ramon Ortiz is coming out of the bullpen, and used rarely.
