    Nice job Joe Mauer
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    1. Eduardo Nunez was acquired from the Yankees last week and is in Rochester training for a utility role.

    2. Eduardo Escobar is also a SS option but the Twins don't seem overly high on him.

    3. A Kid named Santana is also playing SS in a Rochester but he hasn't knocked down the door.

    4. Dozier is going nowhere.

    5. Eddie Rosario is the highly rated 2B prospect currently under suspension. Eddie will have to play his way on to the team. Dozier won't go down easy.

    Scoreless into the 7th. I know that's what I expected when I saw "Vargas vs Correia."

    I hope Dozier is on this team for a long time. It would also be cool to see some personality, and maybe some aggressive play. This team is dry.

    It's bittersweet being a Florimon fan right now. He looks outstanding defensively, but terrible offensively. Obviously, he's had some quality at bats (fouling pitches off, making pitchers throw lots of pitches, taking the odd walk etc.) and is putting the bat on the ball, but he's just not missing gloves with the ball.

    "Even the Losers" (get lucky sometimes)
    "The Waiting" for him not to suck (is the hardest part)

    "Don't Come Around Here No More" if you can't hit your weight
    "[Pedro] Won't Back Down"
    "Learning to Fly" (and I ain't got wings)
    "Runnin' Down a Dream" of batting .100
    "Free Fallin'" toward batting .050

    Ok, you win, that's pretty much all of them.

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

    I cannot for the life of me figure out how a Dominican could struggle in North America in April.

    Colabello's batting gloves remind me of Nishioka.

    They are sitting down eating a packed lunch. They'll be back after they wash their hands.

    That's ironic. I think he's currently a hand model for Country Crock.
