    You'd take Sam Fuld and Aaron Hicks over a guy who can make catches like that AND bat 296?

    Mackey Sasser just had issues throwing back to the pitcher, correct? When he was in the middle of the action I think his throws were usually accurate.

    Significantly better than a Dozier double after a Florimon base hit.

    Prediction--Yan Gomes will not with the Gold Glove at catcher in the AL. If we can't ridicule our own players, we can go after the opposition.

    He'd fit right in with the Minnesota Hockey mentality. He should be a Twin... Then we wouldn't have to watch Escobar playing well out there.

    34 ABs this year, played in NPB in 2013, and has attitude issues. I'd rather we hadn't botched the whole OF situation this offseason instead of either of the options you listed.

    Do not attempt to adjust your gamecast... We control the horizontal. We control the vertical...

    (original referent http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8CtjhWhw2I8 cause looking things up is fun.)

    And sorry i'm too slow to put it on the first reply to yer post.
