    A very interesting play involving Span calling Revere off. Hopefully Revere learns quickly from that play.. (today, he's playing Left)

    However, I'd be careful not to try to compare Craig Monroe with Delmon Young, especially in their ST following leaving MN.
    Come on man, it's a pretty loose comparison. Player X leaves the Twins and has extra motivation to stick it to them after they leave.

    Big 4 run inning. Love the xbh

    Benson 2 run dinger. Too bad he's not ready for the bigs (sarcasm).

    Maloney striking out Fielder and Young back-to-back makes me smile.

    Inge too in the previous inning. At this point I don't see how he does not make the team

    Thinking the same thing. It would seem he'd have to fall apart to not make the club now.

    He'll get there. No sense in hastening his arbitration years when;

    A) He's never played in AAA
    B) The outfield is our strongest position group
    C) The Twins won't be competing for anything in all likelihood this year anyways

    Carroll is really working himself back to a bench role: 0 for 3 with 3 Ks! Saving grace was one that one walk, but let's hope he can turn it around. I see a quick flip in the order of Carroll to the 9 hole and casilla/revere to the 2 hole maybe depending on the R/L pithcer also. He's just been bad at the plate and very average in the field.
    Man is born free, but everywhere he is in chains.

    Not sure about that unless they make a trade of having Dozier start, but I think that he and Casilla might be switched in the batting order sooner than later

    Maybe I shouldn't compare the two, but Morneau a few years ago was hitting like he is now in ST, then he came out and started getting hit after hit and I believe he ended up winning the MVP that year. While the MVP is out of the range (pun intended) of Caroll, he might just be a slow starter. Even if he is a bench player at the start, I gotta believe that the Twins replace him with Hughes before they replace him with Dozier.

    Gray 1-2-3 inning. What shot does this guy have in the bullpen? Has not 'stood out' that much.

    His first appearance was pretty bad.
    I think that right now he is behind (not in any order) Waldrop, Burton, Manship. Fien and maybe Deduno and Wise as well

    I remember that. I also believe he's out of options.

    I also remember signing him to a ML contract getting panned. One of Billy Smith's last great moves.
