    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    That's what you call a quality at bat by Kubel. Take the pitcher into a full count, then drive it into the wall.

    I think the Twins see another infielder they can use in the outfield. It really makes the other manager think when you play players out of position.

    Yup. He came into ST out of shape... and now he's out of here.

    He's a pitcher...how can you tell if he's out of shape?

    Id say if after 3 starts everyone is still stinking it up, Meyer finds his way to TC.
    So I get that the pitching has been awful this season, but how much "more help" could/should the Twins have gotten? Every starter and most of the relievers have been bad (or at least below average) to date...should they have gotten 5 additional starters?

    Butera for Nunez in a vaccuum is an amazing trade. I have seen him play at Yankee stadium several times, I think the pressure of being the next SS following Jeter affected him a bit, while I don't think he is going to to be some great player, he will certainly be a much needed upgrade for this current team and could surprise some folks.

    Nunez can play SS and 3B? Or just 3B? Either way, he's still at AAA so it's not an issue right now.

    Purchase a batting tee and 100 balls at Target and load up on hitting.

    Yeah, I agree- he's a potential asset.

    He can play everything poorly. Think Jason Bartlett.

    +1

    It's just not Correia's day and we have a bullpen full of pitchers. Sounds like Deduno is getting warm.
