    Minor League Managers

    With the Twin's results this year, I assume that Gardy is on the "Bubble" right now or will be soon. I like him, but at some point results matter and Minnesota nice goes out the door. The question...

    Monkey paws, that was my first thought. On reflection, however, I cannot imagine that they left him in the game for all those innings if there was ANY doubt about the health of his wrist. No one...

    Buxton is 11 for his last 22 in his last 5 games. This includes 2 HR's, 1 triple, 5 walks and at least 1 HBP. That's at least a .608 on base record. I guess his spring training is coming around. ...

    These ratings are interesting in light of what happened yesterday. Buxton homered in the 9th yesterday to go 2-4. This follows a 3-5 night with a triple. His spring training is being done in live...

    Berrios (Again, yea, sorry)

    Watched the futures game and the short film posted elsewhere on this forum. Berrios looked very short when next to other players. Clearly this is not a reliable way to judge height, but the...

    I'd be pretty surprised if these young men weren't aware of every thought, rule or nuance affecting their careers. Especially the Latino players who might naturally be a bit cautious given the...

    In an earlier post someone said he is hitting around .400 with bases loaded and very well with runners in scoring position is key. It might mean that when he concentrates he can be very succesful. ...

    A very big day for our top position and arguably our top pitching prospect. Buxton is back in the line up and it looks like he's lost nothing in the field. Will be interesting to see how long it...

    Has anyone seen him? The questions are multiple and obvious. His BA has to be a concern. It shows (I guess) a huge lack of discipline. Most puzzling is his performance with the bases loaded. ...

    Berrios - again

    Well...another oh hum day for our guy. 6 IP, 0 ER's. Now 9-3 with a 1.93 ERA. Boy, I sure hope they don't force him up too quickly. Probably has too much Left to learn at this level.

    I just noticed in looking at his last 10 games that the first of these was the "bad" one. In the last 9 games he's 7-1 with an ERA of 1.24 and never given up more than 2 runs in any game. Crazy,...

    Well, it continues. Tonight 6 IP, 1 ER, 5 hits, 8 K's, 0 BB's. They just must promote him. What can possibly be the reason to hold him back now?

    "There is no reason, at his age and experience, to rush him to AA."

    Maybe true, but more importantly, given his record there is no reason to keep him where he is.

    You mean to tell me he's still in Elizabethtown? After a night like he had? Typical Twins act, holding back someone just because they're young.

    Wow! I haven't seen him but he's had an amazing run, and only just 20 g2 weeks ago). His line reads as though he's 28 pitching against 19 year olds. Last 10 games has a 1.56 ERA and only 1 game...
