    I don't think real competition for roster spots or starting jobs starts until next week, but if there are some judgments being made, Kubel and Mastro are not helping their causes.

    No I was at that game. I talked to a bunch of other people who were too.

    The "they'll all be lying" part is about seeing Kepler and Buxton play together at Vets Stadium in CR. That never happened. They never were together for a home game.

    I was actually surprised by how many Twins fans were at that series in Appleton. It was fun to see. It was also the first time Terry Ryan saw Buxton play in person last season. Don't think it was a coincidence that he was promoted immediately after Ryan saw for himself how Buxton was performing.

    Nice to see Buxton prove he isn't perfect. Hope that's the last time we see him lose a fly ball in the sun, though.

    Kepler with a double. He's certainly making the most of his time in big league camp.

    Hey Paul, where does Kepler start the 2014 season? Does he stay in Fort Myers?

    I'm not Paul, but yeah I'd bet Kepler starts the season with the Miracle and they look to promote him to AA by mid season.

    I never felt Kepler was "right" last summer in CR. The guy I've watched in AFL and ST is not the same guy. This is the guy that was really impressing the Twins staff last ST before his elbow injury.

    Would not have bet on the chances of Buxton hitting in to an inning ending DP there.
