If Mauer is on DL does that open the door for Vargas? He is on the 40 man and no reason to care about service time. He could get a week or two of games. Doesn't seem like the worst thing in the world.

Probably will get Collabello up one last time. Vargas really isnt a 1st baseman.

If Vargas will not play in the field, shouldn't the Twins consider trading him now, while his numbers are good. I don't see the Twins having a need for a full time DH, especially considering the way Gardy likes to play everyone and to rest Mauer by DHing him from time to time.

Morales?? Vargas will more than likely take over for Morales next year or this year if he were to get hurt. I like the idea of a full time DH similar to the role Big Papi plays.

Parmelee to 1B full-time ... Waive Florimon .... Add Farris to platoon with Fuld in CF until some guys get healthy/figure it out and they can fix that mess ... Just my $.02

Again another great hitting performance for Rosario. I have wonder if he won't be up before September, but almost certainly in September when rosters expand.

I think the same thing but then look it up on baseball reference and see he is hitting .226 for New Britain. Doesn't seem to jive.

yeah, same as last year unfortunately... hot start, and then cools considerably. Hopefully it clicks.

In Ibarra's defense for Rochester....... while he did come in and give up 3 consecutive singles, a strikeout, and two walks that pushed in 2 runs......... he was taken out of the game with one out and a bases loaded situation that a double play ball would have been the end of the inning, but instead, Pressly was brought in for relief and promptly allowed all three inherited runners to score by giving up a double (his gift to Ibarra), followed by a single to get charged with one run of his own that inning.
