    The Twins might want to make sure Escobar's bat is in the line up on a regular basis, moving forward, the way he is hitting..

    The Twins have already won the Liriano trade... Now we must pray that Escobar becomes the second coming of JJ Hardy so we can laugh at Sox fans for a long time.

    While I've long said that his ceiling is higher than Florimon's (utility player on a good team, as opposed to AA hitter), I'm still a little nervous that the bat won't hold up if he plays every day. The time is right to find out, of course...

    With an eye toward the future, might want to save time/energy by listing non-struggling hitters instead.

    Sorry, couldn't resist. You're right, especially in the context of the overall expectations for 2014. The month of April told us that those expectations were upside down. Starters worse, hitters better.

    It probably told us wrong. Now we're seeing the inevitable, surprisingly rapid normalization of what was almost certainly a massive outlier month. Both pitching and hitting.

    So instead of hoping Escobar is successful so that we can watch him play for years to come, we'd rather him be successful so we can make fun of White Sox fans?

    There is only one way to find out and he's earned it. Let him play.

    Why would we want a bad fireballing relief pitcher from the Orioles again?

    I thought that third run scored by the Indians put the game out of reach, but I'm happy to be proved wrong.

    Yup. Though i just gave the obvious culmination line. The theatrical production entirely merged the two corresponding fight scenes. The parody itself was of the original trilogy in 3+ hours, set to show tunes. If i recall, a contest to identify all the sources for music was won by someone getting 42 of the 43.
