How can the Twins get the most out of the pitchers on their roster?

*Do you have enough pitching?

*Why are you so confident in Michael Pineda and Martin Perez?

*What kind of work goes in behind the scenes to make guys better? And when you talk about “optimizing pitch mix” for a certain pitcher, how many people have a hand in that?

*Are we being too optimistic here?

*Starters/relievers on the 25-man roster, and minor league options come into play.
