Free Joe Benson

Rate this Entry
I know Joe Benson needs to learn how to command the strike zone better, but... oh wait, you say that isn't Joe Benson playing RF? It's who?... Clete Thomas? Who's he? And why is he playing so much when we have the likes of Joe Benson and Chris Parmelee?

Disclaimer: I know, I know, Benson and Parmelee could both use more seasoning in AAA and both need to playing every day. I get it, I really do. GO TWINS! Go Clete Thomas!

    Hey Ho Silver Slugger. Thomas is just filler, but he could be a decent 4th OFer. Benson will definitely get his shot, not now, but soon. Parmelee needs no more seasoning. He is ready to hit, hit, and hit and will be a a proficient Outfielder. If Thomas pushes Parmelee to Rochester, there should be outrage, but I think Parm has become one of Gardy and Ryan's favorites. Unless he falls flat on his face, Parm is in the bigs to stay.

    yep exactly, theres no way Benson is ready now, neither if Parmelee for that matter....you need guys like Thomas to be that platoon starter, 4th OF...type untill at least well, about mid-season. Then hopefully one of Revere or Benson EARNS their way back up with Minny.

    Guys like Thomas are around so that guys like Revere, Benson and Tosoni can develop more. Develop more for next season, when the Twins hope to be competitive again. That's why Parmelee should be in Rochester getting at bats every day.
