    Arcia was on the bench with a DTD wrist injury per ESPN.

    yes Arcia was hurt. But I still appreciate the ant especially after all of these silly moves by the FO.

    Wilkin Ramirez and Clete Thomas on this roster is really atrocious.

    Blast! Although, most good rants ignore any semblance of reality, so it's cool.

    Nice article and congrats on going a year. Really like your sense of humor. Next time, I suggest a Venn diagram.

    It's articles like this that tend to make me not come to Twins Daily for anything other than the minor league wrap-up.

    On Clete Thomas: Remember him last year? Those same blooper hits were all strikeouts as he waved wildly at a slurve ball sailing two feet outside. I give Thomas credit for shortening up his swing and attempting to formulate some professional at-bats. That, and his occasional home run pop looks about the same, so the shorter swing and better plate discipline are all positives.

    Granted, he's not going to pull a Dozier and suddenly cure all his hitting ills, but Clete Thomas now looks like a serviceable fourth outfielder, and he no longer looks like the automatic out machine from years past. All hail the blooper single!

    Yeah, that's true. I tend to fixate on one player and loathe him regardless of what he actually accomplishes. It's a personality defect.
