    I think the versatility thing is key. Escobar has a major league future as a utility player, while Florimon is a shortstop and shortstop only. If Florimon is optioned, what do the Twins do with...

    He did get the tying run home vs. the A's, correct? He also got credit for an RBI when Moose booted his grounder vs. the Royals. So that is twice where he got the runner home.

    Shades of Span/Revere/Hammer. Melky would definitely be the better CF. I suppose they don't want to waste Joey Bats' arm in left, but that configuration is all wrong.

    I am pulling hard for Florimon, I'd like to see him get three hits or so to get above the half-Mendoza line.

    On the flip side, only one unearned run has been charged to Twins pitchers. For the team to do better than expected, they need that trend to continue. However, official scoring has been kind to...

    I have been in the pro-Florimon camp, believing that defense is crucial and that P-Flo could raise his OBP a bit just by making contact a bit more and perhaps bunting successfully a few more times. ...

    I like to look at ESPN's statistics as a quick and easy comparison of teams and players. I usually look when the Twins are playing well and look for positive trends--call me an optimist. Anyway,...

    On the subject of umpiring, technology is demonstrating how tough it is to get balls and strikes right, not that umpiring has sunken or risen IMHO. On Gibson, he needs to consistently hit the mitt...

    I'm pulling for Wimmers. He has had a series of misfortunes since signing with the Twins, but maybe there is hope that he will amount to something.

    I've seen a lot of scenarios mentioned here. Is it possible that the Twins will go for Escobar as the regular shortstop and move Nuñez in as the utility infielder? Who knows? Maybe Nuñez can...

    Since Mastro ran for Kubel (winning run in the bottom of the seventh), Gardy put Herrmann in for Colabello (Mastro in right, Herrmann in left) as a defensive replacement. That left only Escobar on a...

    I thought that maybe Plouffe was trying to hold third for the force play momentarily. The ball was pretty close to the mound, but Correia falls off to the first base side.

    This guy isn't a rookie. He's not 22 years old. Consistent playing time could be one factor, and maybe a consistent position. I doubt that Nuñez will be the answer at shortstop, but his situation...

    Having seen Polanco play several times, I am not sure he's up for being a major league shortstop. I think he's a second baseman and also after April 1st, Fort Myers is a long ways from Minnesota.

    I like having a plus defender at shortstop, but Pedro's at-bats would not go down as "quality". Yes, he has hit some balls hard, but he has struck out over a third of the time. He's mixed in a lot...

    Ho-hum, another quality start. Somehow, I don't think KC will continue to struggle like this all year, or even for another week.
