No room for Baker?

Scott Baker probably would be the first to tell you his spring training numbers weren't what he wanted them to be. But after watching Sidney Ponson get tattooed by the New York Yankees on Monday and seeing Minnesota give up double-digit runs the next night, it's hard to believe Baker couldn't do any better than those guys.

Before anyone lables me a homer, know that Baker was 2-0 against the Yankees last season. Granted one of those games was played in far-from-perfect hitting conditions but a win's a win. Ramon Ortiz and Ponson have longer track records of success in the big leagues, but it's hard to see Minnesota doing much with them -- especially Ponson -- in the back of its rotation.
