    I didn't want to mention that I feared the worst, I had a family member who sustained a cut in the eyelid, the complications and challenges to full healing were tremendous. And he didn't play professional baseball.

    I thought this was a joke. Is it April 1?

    Can someone get a real story on this?

    Your eyelids are extremely important to good vision health. Gardy himself said that the cut extended across the entire eyelid. I wonder if Santana also sustained tear duct damage....hopefully it's just superficial damage.

    If Reusse and Neal are having some fun, and continuing their campaign of destruction on the Twins and their OF situation, that's just not cool.

    Reading the responses to LEN3's post, it seems like others have doubts as well as me.

    Given how unusual this is, they need to be really clear about what is going on. Waiting for Berardino to post a story since he is usually on top of things.

    Responsible news reporters have certain duties and ethical responsibilities, above the average rube, even on Twitter, right?

    Apparently they thought it was so absurd they didn't need to be responsible.

    Santana looks pretty good there on the bench.

    I'm sorry, but that's quite a jerk move. But then I guess one man's humour/sarcasm is another woman's 'that's quite a jerk move.'

    I get sarcastic, but the bigger point is that Reusse and his minions are on a reckless and relentless campaign against something they don't like going on with the Twins. They shouldn't be using the repertorial tools and then blurring the line between clown posting and reporting (especially with the Twins beat writer in on the gimmick).

    Let's see, so far it's cost them Buxton and Santana, anyone else I've left out?

    I have a pretty good sense of humor. In no way is this funny. They are being jerks.
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    Yeah ... I wasn't giving it a pass, but was trying to keep it ... civil.

    This is the internet, and the beat writer was in on this, too. Very irresponsible. Twitter goes out worldwide, how many are capable of appreciating the context of such "humor", especially when you're talking about an injury that could potentially permanently affect a player's vision?

    Has everyone simply forgotten about Kirby and his literally overnight glaucoma revelation?

    Well, to each his own...my first reaction to this was to chuckle.

    Having a family member almost lose a portion of his eyesight in one eye from an eyelid injury, chuckling was not my first reaction, or last. A full dose of "Aghast", at the insensitivity of the comment was more my first reaction, although totally expected from Reusse, but then the piling on, all in good fun, by the Twins beat writer, was a bit strange.
