    I commented on this news a whole bunch on twitter last night, so you can find my opinions there.
    Just want to say here that this is a well written piece.

    I'm trying to remember -- how does that old saying go??
    Oh yea...

    Unbelievable. Makes me glad (as always) for TwinsDaily.

    The size thing is interesting. Yes, Vargas is essentially limited to DH or occasional 1B duties because he is huge and slow. But, it's not as if he can't run the bases, or trips over himself getting...

    For the record, I have absolutely nothing against NB. I've been going to games there for many years, and they do a great job. I know many of the employees by name, and they are all great people. So I...

    Well, you're making a bunch of statements here that don't make a lot of sense.

    Yes, New Britain's mayor had no part in this, as it was an agreement between Hartford and the team's owner to take...

    Well, that's a little dramatic. You say this as if they currently don't play in New Britain, Connecticut.

    I agree that there are problems in Hartford, though. Whether this will help make things...

    Thanks for the comments. That's a really good question, and I don't know the answer.
    But you're right about the PCL -- you to take their stats into account. I've never heard that said about the...

    Kennys Vargas Injury

    I heard at the beginning of the Rock Cats radio broadcast tonight that Kennys Vargas was out of the lineup tonight because of a wrist injury suffered in batting practice (AM radio was fuzzy, but I...

    Tonight was a great start -- especially in terms of pitches (107) and the 8 full innings.
    Strangely, 2 of the walks came back-to-back following a relatively meaningless 2-out triple after Rochester...

    On the subject of his K %, take a look at what he's done since 2009: http://www.fangraphs.com/statss.aspx?playerid=sa503875&position=1B/DH#advanced

    I'll save you the click if you don't want to...

    Well, he had to play somewhere, but yes, the defense isn't very good. He's listed at 275 pounds. Also, Joe Mauer will block him. Not to say he couldn't fill in, but yea, I have little doubt Vargas...

    Thanks for the comments. I agree -- he very well could advance to AAA or MN this season.
    But I think the primary goal is that he plays every day, and the way things might shape up in Rochester, he...

  19. Yea, I agree, another few starts. I mean, he's...

    Yea, I agree, another few starts. I mean, he's made only 4 AAA starts. So I do think there are things left to prove. He pitched 5, 5.1, 3.2 and 6.2 innings. I'd like to see him get to 100 pitches in...
  20. I guess I'll be the one to urge a little...

    I guess I'll be the one to urge a little restraint on Meyer. Though my concern has nothing to do with Super 2 or adding him to the 40 man roster.

    Meyer was injured the majority of last season. I...

    A few numbers on May for the season (15 & 1/3 IP): 16K; 3 BB; WHIP .783; .167 opp. avg.
    Kind of exactly what we want to see from him.

    Yes, he absolutely can. He got some reps there in NB in 2012 (60 games), but gave way to Santana last year. Looks like he also predominately played SS in 2011 with the Miracle.
  25. He's in the NB bullpen.

    He's in the NB bullpen.
