    He was actually pretty good​ when he was here.
    He couldn't play defense and heretical metrics were still subject to Twins front office inquisition back then. Just not a good fit.

    But they broke The Curse and as was already mentioned, we freed up space for Porkchop Lecroy, so it all worked out.

    I sure hope they teach Oswaldo Arcia to "go the other way", that will certainly take away the sting of letting David Ortiz leave.

    The coaches finally got the telegram from the advanced stats department, don't throw him strikes.

    Goin would have handed it to Gardy sooner, but had to endure yet another joint St. Peter/Antony wedgie first...

    The Ortiz-Swarzak matchup was entertaining. Surprised by Swarzak's velo.

    Not much to be encouraged about today. Goody, it's Matt Guerrier.
