    I wonder if bringing up Guerrier is a set up for potentially DFA Burton? Give Guerrier a couple appearances to show that he is back and then DFA Burton for an outfielder. Not to defend the front office/Gardy which clearly have had issues with roster management but I wonder if they know something that we don't.

    They clearly know things we don't. Doesn't mean they are good or bad at their job. Doesn't mean every decision they make is good or bad. People get replaced all the time, because not everyone is good at their job.
    Lighten up Francis....

    In regards to the 3 SS situation, even with the small sample size, it is a much better idea to keep Santana/Escobar rather than anyone and Florimon. Even if it requires the Twins to expose Florimon, they have to do something. Florimon is seriously in danger of falling below .100 for a batting average. No matter how good the glove is, no one can overcome that.

    The only reason I can thing of is that Guerrier is French for warrior, i.e. someone who battles, perhaps even at the expense of their derriere.

And the front office is apparently unwilling to expose another player to waivers to call up Parmelee, which tells you where he stands with both Gardy and management, as I'm pretty certain he'd be up if Gardy really wanted him.
    My assumption on "one" pitcher needing to go to AAA, is being replaced by a position player. Now that Guerrier is up, two pitchers need to go to AAA, but since Guerrier is a crap shoot and Deduno can only go 4 innings they have to keep a 13th pitcher.

    You may be right that Gardy was frustrated as a result of Arcia aggravating his injury on the day he was supposed to be called up.

    Good point on Parms, either he's too valuable to risk later or he isn't valuable enough to risk losing Burton or Florimon over. I'm better latter.... Sad...

    And today we have a shortstop in Center Field. No matter how strange it gets with this team, it seems like there is always more.

But by being stuck in left field with no experience, he was set up to fail. Who knows how Guerrier fits into this team and how it will set the team up to fail in a future game?
    Yes. Not fair to Twins fans, and just as importantly, not fair to Escobar.

    I don't complain much, but wow, this roster is a mess.
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    Confirmed. Florimon has an option remaining.

    The problem with all of this, though, is that there just aren't position players ready to contribute. Although having a somewhat able body beats having an unable body.

    The problem with all of this is that the position player they currently have on the roster isn't ready to contribute, either.

    Today, the Twins should have swapped Nunez for Florimon. Today the Twins should have DFAed someone and recalled Parmelee for Herrmann or a pitcher. Mauer needs to go to the DL

    Parmelee requires a 40 man move. Too early to fall into that trap.

    Arcia, on the other hand...

    Correct. The problem is that somehow this system has NO OF in AAA or AA that is a better OF than Escobar, Bartlett, or Hermann.

    Guerrier also required a 40 man move, and the Twins didn't really need another reliever.

    I agree. I don't like the Guerrier move either but that doesn't mean you double down on creating unnecessary roster crunch.

    Calling up Arcia is the logical move in my opinion. At least the guy can hit.

    The radio guys just said Mauer has done some workouts. General soreness is the reason he is out of the lineup today.

    Whats Lew Ford up to? He'd be an upgrade in the outfield and he's only in his late 30s.
