    I'm going to be a contrarian, but I don't think Bartlett was that brutal. He made bad judgments, is clearly inexperienced, but at least he is going after balls. He just dove as many times as Hammer will all year. Hammer would not have gotten to either ball. With a little more experience, Bartlett catches the first one and the run doesn't score. With Willingham in LF, both those balls land for singles at least but Kipnis probably doesn't score. Don't get me wrong, I would still rather have him learning OF in AAA. Ok I said it, now bash away.

    True, they could still lose because of Bartlett's play. Frankly I hope they do. It's just one game, and this outing may earn Bartlett a DFA

    I noticed that too. Not sure I saw him do that successfully last year. Good on him.

    Swarzak looks like a guy who led the league in relief innings last year.

    They don't always follow up with another good year.

    More importantly, it should earn a DFA for the person most responsible for Bartlett being counted on as an outfielder, as well.

    Bill James figured that out over 20 years ago, but apparently it's news to the Twins...

    I agree completely.

    The main concern is that Bartlett is the CF backup plan. Shoehorned into the OF to fit what the roster needed.

    Antony or Gardy? I don't really blame Gardy, he doesn't have many choices...

    I'm sorry. That was intended as a good natured ribbing and was in no way meant as a personal attack.
