Who would you rather see open the 2013 season at 2-bag, Brian Dozier or Ed Rosario?
Eddie is better than Dozier offensively, right now. I think, since the big club is gonna suck this year, that Rosario will get at least 2 years of defensive work in the minor leagues.
If you continue to post nonsense you should expect to be called on it. Rosario would get absolutely destroyed against MLB pitching right now. Not even his bat is ready. It would be absolutely depressing to watch Rosario in the MLB this year.Quote:
In my opinion, Carrol is a bench guy, and Florimon and Escobar are AAA material. Eddie is MLB material. Dozier might be, but he sure didn't look like it during his extended playing time with MN last year.
Obviously we won't see Eddie next year in Minnesota. But it sure would be more fun than seeing these other posers.
I'm really hoping we see Rosario advance quickly.....through our minor league system where he belongs. He's one of the guys I'm most excited about long-term for this team.
The last time a Twins Second Baseman jumped all the way from Single A to the Big Show? 1967, when an obscure fellow named Rodney Cline Carew debuted with parent club and played 134 games at 2b. We all know how much of a disaster that was (All Star & Rookie of the Year). Eddie Rosario wouldn't have a chance...

I really like Eddie. I wont stop you from dreaming big on him...could be a very special MLB player by 2014.
To be clear, he's not ready, but considering what this team has expected from it's middle infielders over most of the last two decades, he's not nearly as far away as some people on this board seem to think.
