So lets get the facts here:
1) Toxic relationship with management
2) Relearning something he hasnt done since puberty struck
3) Already overwhelmed by current competition
4) Has been subbed for with a career shortstop and backup catcher
How does anyone still endorse the status quo? The alternatives suck but this is putrid. We are tossing a former top prospect into a shark filled, enclosed wading pool and people are justifying it as a good way to learn to swim. Baffling.

Then again, the Twins don't have many holes right now that don't have quality prospects rising through the minors at the position. Maybe spending money on an outfielder isn't a bad idea.

Whichever bat doesn't play in a corner spot, you consider the infield in Rosario's case, or a trade....as the Twins demonstrated with Span and Revere, you should always be able to get a decent return when trading a CFer.

If you compare what your prospect has done and compare it to the work that players who made it to the majors as a success might be more useful. Comparing the player on what his stats are against the players you think will make the majors could be useful. Can't see where it does any good to compare the player to filler and failures. If you say small sample sizes for what I would want to look at are a problem then tell me a number that one would need. I have never seen where an author looked at reliabity and margain of error on their statistics.
