The Twins insist on making bad decisions

The mere fact that this is something that is even being discussed right now is an indication of how up the creek the Twins are. There is actually talk of moving Brian Duensing to the bullpen, because the bullpen is so bad. Ugh.
Thankfully, Ron Gardenhire, who actively cannot figure out how to use a bullpen, would like to keep Duensing in the rotation, but the fact that he is considering it is just... ugh. A good starter that can go deep into ball games eliminates the need for a good rotation. Fix the problems in the rotation ( and there are plenty) and the bullpen will improve just because of the lack of a workload.
How do you fix it? I don't know, I'm not a GM, but if I had to make a suggestion, I would say move Slowey (if healthy) in, take perhaps Pavano out, just to show that nobody is safe. Other than that, let someone pitch into the 7th and 8th innings of games. Three of the starters are actually doing well. But don't take Duensing out of the rotation. (Picture of Pavano because he is the greatest rotation disappointment.)
