Well, that'd be one more GM than the number who think Florimon is a major league hitter.
Let's consider who he (Tonkin) would replace (assuming no injury):
Perkins - No.
Burton - Long Leash, not being demoted.
Duensing - Long Leash, not being demoted.
Fien - has an option, but...
No and No.
a. He will not play every day at AAA. He will likely play 3/5 of the days. And he will likely end up playing 3/5 of the Twins' games by the end of the season
b. If he does not...

Depends how you define "success" I guess :) And under .700 OPS is not successful at any level.
His career numbers in the majors are bit different that what you mention:
vs RHP .224/.286/.347...
It seems to me this would be difficult in Rochester.
If traded, it will because of his bat, and the receiving team will hide him at DH or LF. No-one would trade for Willingham for his defense, but rather a healthy and productive bat. His...
Teams know what Willingham can do offensively and defensively. The objective should be to keep him healthy.
I agree with your 2nd paragraph, I am not so sure about your 3rd. I don't think Ryan was much interested in most of the high priced free agents last year. Since a lot of them actually pitched worst...
Uh-oh. I advise you to watch your back around these parts my friend.
Also, at this point you could argue the Twins have done more to give up on Gibson for next year than anything anyone has said on the board. Part of why I don't like Pelfrey is...
