    I have long dreamed and proposed that the incomplete overhang be extended in both directions, ultimately extending from the break in center field to the foul pole. To further add to the new look, scrap the existing boring digital scoreboard- bring back an analog look!, and then recreate a version of the stone arch bridge as "supports" for the overhang, with portions of the scoreboard within each T:




    but built with arches like the most iconic public works project in the state:

    That would be beautiful! The Cardinals have incorporated a Mississippi bridge design into their stadium and it is awesome. Please send this to the Twins FO and owners.

    Since the removal of the trees in CF, I have long thought the high right field wall and scoreboard is the second worst aesthetic in the park. I have long dreamed and proposed that the incomplete overhang be extended in both directions, ultimately extending from the break in center field to the foul pole. To further add to the new look, scrap the existing boring digital scoreboard- bring back an analog look!, and then recreate a version of the stone arch bridge as "supports" for the overhang, with portions of the scoreboard within each arch along with added ground level seating, something like RF in AT & T:

    I meant what I wrote...left- handed pitchers so the opposition could not take advantage of the short porch in RF, since their left-handed hitters would have trouble hitting our left-handed pitchers.

    How often have teams made adjustments like this one in the past?

    PP* you mean LH hitters right?

    He did the same thing though at Ft. Myers this year. L:301/363/521 R:346/454/729. That's a crazy split and oddly enough in the wrong direction...

    Miguel Sano at Minor League Central

    Select year.

    He has maintained very small splits throughout and I would agree this is a very good sign.

    Seems like just a few days ago he was "day-to-day" and "just about back"

    Yet another fail for the training staff.

    He is still struggling to swing a bat without pain; could still join Twins on Friday for series v. Rays, but sounding less and less likely.

    Arcia could get a look. The Twins might bite on Hicks. But anyone else...no, not if they aren't 40-man roster qualified at tis point. No use starting the clock on anyone before you need to, just for an early looksee. Arcia needs to make the team in 4 years...so he's an advance looker.

    That OF defense must be fantastic
    Few balls must drop in the gap and no one should run on Arcia's arm. This could be the 2014 OF for the MN twins

    That's a fun team to watch. It would be great for them to get to the playoffs as a team and win a round or two or a championship!

    Since he started at Fort Meyers and spent some time on DL, he only has 34 games at New Britain while the league leaders are over 85.
