Hicks in AAA. Thomas stays in CF

Posted by Thegrin , 24 June 2013 · 200 views

Until Thomas stops hitting and/or Hicks starts hitting, I suggest that the Twins keep Hicks in AAA and keep Thomas in CF.

Starting Rotation

Posted by Thegrin , 21 March 2013 · 199 views

Community Blog Post
We all have seen pitchers that seemed to have difficulty in Spring Training, find their stuff once the season starts. We've see players hit for high average and then can't hit above .200 in real games.

Cole DeVries
PJ Walters
Liam Hendriks

ahead of Worley, Pelfrey...
