    But I have to say that the headline writer was much nastier than Gardy's comments.
    Berardino continues his top-flite beat coverage. I have to publish Gardy's classic passive-aggressive quote:

    “He (Esco) catches the balls he’s supposed to catch. He’s got a really strong arm and he’s very sure of himself. Probably not as much range as the other guy, but that’s a lot. You’re talking top of the line there.”
    It seems pretty hard for Gardy to admit he was flat out wrong coming out of ST, I hope Eduardo hasn't made any permanent plans about claiming the SS position- Gardy clearly is losing sleep in not having his .100 BA gettin-after-it Middle Infielder.

They tried that with Smith and it was a disaster. I hope they don't repeat that mistake.
    What indications have we received thus far that we're NOT on the exact same course as before?

    Tony LaRussa was reported as being considered for various GM jobs in the offseson. Having taken 2 mid-market teams to the MLB pinnacle in the past as manager, with a history of developing young talent and avid student of sabremetric analysis, he would be the dream candidate to take the Twins position, ego and all. Is Jim Pohlad intrepid enough to finally bring in a Type A personality to guide and lead all of the young superstars in the current pipeline?

    Wow, I feel like I interfered with the Star Trek space-time continuum. The NL West might be starting an arms race reminiscent of the Al East.
    (Oh well, it wasn't like it ever would have occurred to the Twins to consider this "radical" option, anyway. LaRussa's personality would have rocked too many Twins Way wessels.) [/Chekov-off]
