If one game can show the jumbled mess that the Twins' starting rotation is while also encapsulating the dangers of delving into the free agent market, Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader was exactly that game.
In an effort to bolster their starting rotation heading into the 2014 season, the Twins signed three pitchers to multiyear contracts: Ricky Nolasco (4 years, $49 million), Phil Hughes (3 years, $24 million) and Mike Pelfrey (2 years, $11 million).
All three of them pitched Wednesday night: Pelfrey at the start, Hughes and Nolasco in relief.
