    I think Turner and Garver will keep any Suzuki extension short. I'm not sure Suzuki would want an extension when Pinto is breathing down his neck. I don't think he's ready to be a backup yet.

    Color me skeptical on Beresford as anything but a Util guy at the major league level.
    Don't get me wrong, I'm hardly a Beresford fan. The question is whether or not he's an upgrade over Florimon... right now, I'd think just about anyone is...

    Just commenting on this last page of comments. There is no evidence so far that Stuart Turner is going to be good. There is evidence for Garver, but it is at A ball. I am on the record for being disappointed with the Twins catcher draft selections last year. I really think they amount to little. Anyway, Beresford should absolutely be in consideration for promotion soon. Let Escobar take it for now.
