    Less obstructed playing time for younger players like Parmelee, Arcia, Santana, Pinto or Vargas and a free 40-man spot to add someone like Meyer or Rosario.

    I'll only be upset if they again trade a vet who takes up one 40 man spot (and who would be off of it as a free agent come November) for two AAAA guys who both require 40 man spots.

    This happened...

    Here's the sad part...the three catchers jokes are all well and good and deserved....but Chris Hermann may be the only logical choice to call up. We're that shallow offensively.

    When Worley was traded, I said something along the lines of "if Vance comes back with the Pirates, Anderson needs to be fired."

    I've followed the Twins for a long time. This may be the most...

    This. A lot of great quotes to copy. But I think this one sums it up most succinctly.

    I just don't get it! I'm a Gardy fan and supporter, but I just don't get the Florimon support at this point....

    I think that is exactly what they are trying to do. The following quotes are taken from a couple of different posts by Mike Berardino in the "Twins Now" blog on the Pioneer Press:

    Something needs to happen with Deduno and Florimon...as it is, the Twins are playing with a 23 man roster. Deduno last appeared in a game June 14th, and since his recall Florimon has appeared in 3...

    This, again, was not hard to see coming with his rapidly escalating strikeout rate last year. Let him work through it, that's part of what rebuilding is - patience with kids who have shown what they...

    No one gets this far in professional sports w/o drive. No one. These guys work their tails off. I don't think you have any idea what is going on inside Aaron Hicks' head at all. None.

    I have been taking a short hiatus, but I have to comment on this one.

    First, I agree that this is a typical LEN III thing, using "unnamed" sources to make claims about a player. He is one of the...

    These comments on the Twins "Nearing the end of their patience" combined with posters that are fine seeing Hicks getting sent away... I feel like I watch baseball in a totally different universe.

    It seems to me that there are 2 aspects of the problem: One is Hicks struggles, the change from switch hitting, should he be demoted?, etc. On that aspect, pretty much everyone agrees that he should...

    Fun one about TD's favorite two debate topics:
    Hicks has passed Mauer in OBP (.338 to .336)

    I really don't think either the author or I were putting much credit on the defensive change influencing the offensive change.

    I see three separate things happening here:

    Gee, I thought the 25-man was out of whack, but they'd fix it. So, they keep a 13-man staff after receiving five QSs in six games (and the other game required only two pitchers). The team didn't...

    There's room for Parmelee if Mauer hits the DL and that could be a real possibility if he doesn't play in the next couple days. Hicks and Arcia look to be ready to go by the end of the road trip if...

    We keep a 3rd catcher on roster for two potential scenarios....

    Scenario 1) One of our catchers is catching and the other is DHing. The guy that...

    It won't be long before Arcia is up here. Rumors say Friday. I can't come soon enough.

    But it is unconscionable that this guy is playing in the majors, when Parmelee is at least serviceable and...
