Are you tired of stories about bullpens and sideburns yet?

Me too. I think we all get the idea that the Twins bullpen is different, and for the first time in a while, not completely figured out. A bunch of new (but old) faces are fighting to turn their minor league contracts into major league ones. Anything you see in any of the contenders that would make you pick one over the other? Would you bring up the blue chippers right away and keep the old guys in storage until you needed them?

I might actually lean towards sticking with as many of the older guys as possible... might as well use 'em while you can. Plus, I love crafty guys who just know how to get people out. Let the young guys work on stuff in the minors and bring them up when the old guys break or wear down. Thoughts?
