How does that strike you? I am betting you go, that guy (me) is an idiot.
Think about it, we are loaded at AAA with Pitching..
What do we need? We can get it for one of our great young pitchers, but what would you want?
A cf? A ss? a catcher? Hmm..looks like we are pretty stocked..I guess I would take a Power Hitting First Baseman...thoughts?
I have constantly championed Samuel Deduno. Despite his success there are always the detractors, who listen to media instead of making valid observations, maybe they dont watch twins games.
Yesterday was very different Deduno Speak, Dick and Bert were efffusive in their praise for him, hmmmmm..something came down from on high this was in sharp contrast to earlier comments..the players and Andy all gave him huge praise and Andy was right on about him pitching..to be effective and and
I know i expect too much of him, but its his fault...if he didn't make sparkling play after sparkling play, I wouldn't be surprised that nukes hit his way got by him..but he has been human a little lately. Problem: You cant afford to rest him, he is the twins best player right beside Suzuki and Escobar...
You guys see fatigue?
Pitch batting practice to him at only one pitch..fastball below his knees...he would have to prove he could hit that and WOULD hit that..before he plays again..how many? 100 a day or more..even if he has to have his own batting practice...I just cant believe with two strikes he can not tell that this pitch might be called a strike...also I would prep him that when he has two strikes SWING at the next pitch...not to say other twins arent guilty too..Colabello for one has struck out on multiple
When I watch twins relievers, Tonkin is by far the weakest. He supposedly can throw in the high 90's so why is he trying to get people out with off speed stuff?
BC..his heater with little movement is getting smashed!
His wind up is so open, he doesn't fool anybody, the pitch comes out..and the hitters see it..clearly and teach him a lesson. His stuff..(fastball) allowed him to get by in lower minors..but Michael guess what? You aren't in Kansas anymore dude..just because
How do salaries work when a player is called up? I assume, Santana for example, is now making the MLB minimum 400K? If he is sent back down, does his salary revert to minor league? And how much is that for a player like Santana?
thanks in advance
Wow Gardy is no longer in love with the Mendoza line! Love todays lineup, Gardy is desperately trying to get some hitting in the lineup..absolutely love Santana being in, love Parmalee call up...love ANYBODY is spelling Kubel for a bit..(he will rebound)
One thing concerning..is Pinto finally starting to hit again..but sitting..but Suzuki is Superman!..I know the cape will tear eventually..but loving seeing him fly!
Escobar clearly took command of shortstop, will he continue to hit? Not at that rate for sure..but at least he gives you the possibility of making contact...
Kris Johnson? No Way.. Wait for Jose....
CF? I really like Fuld but History suggests...He will falter...Trade a AA prospect for established CF? I certainly wouldnt put all my eggs in The Buxton Basket
