    Thanks, and to Seth as well, for doing some fact checking. It does seem likely that if this was a true report someone else would have at least mentioned it.

    He removed the bandage covering he seven stitches on his left eyelid and went through full baseball activity, but Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said he was leery of using Santana in a game just yet.“If I run him back out there, and he opens that thing back up, we just lose a few more days,” Gardenhire said. “I’m going to try to give him another day (Sunday) at least. We’ll see what we’ve got when we get to Milwaukee. Let it heal a little bit. It’s (in) a dangerous place. I don’t want to mess around with it.”
    Santana, a switch-hitter, suggested he had a more difficult time tracking pitches when hitting right-handed during batting practice on Saturday. In that case, his left eye is the lead eye.
    Gardy gets it. There's a risk of eye infection and getting injured from a thrown baseball, the good news I infer from this is that the cut is definitely superficial, no damage to the tear ducts or the eye itself.

    To obliquely criticize Gardy and Twins' management for their decision to withhold Santana in this case, by the likes of supposedly responsible Strib journalists, I find worse than the any of the worst of the typical rube Strib commenters.

    Its just sarcasm, the reactions here are really just being overally dramatic. We call the CF situation a "disaster" and no one is doing any gymnastics to tie that to real, deadly disasters. No reason to be that sensitive.

    Concur.

    Besides,Ruesse's tweet is totally unrealistic... everyone knows he would have been "day to day" for a week or three before heading to the DL.

    Yeah, that sucked for Kirby. Hughes is "battling" today....I don't feel the need to stump about all the real battles our brave military is in. Its just unnecessary and silly.

    Posters here are wound too tight. It's just baseball. Watch the game, enjoy,--it isn't life or death.

    May i suggest that cancer, TJ surgery and eye injuries probably shouldn't be used for sarcastic journalistic foils.

    The internet has a long history failing to identity sarcasm. In 2001 Alan Morgan wrote:

    Sold or not, empty seats behind homeplate are an eyesore and an embarrassment.

    Just to be honest, I did no fact checking. I read it. Read who wrote it, and knew what it was.

    Fact checking by experience.

    Your mistake here is in thinking that Reusse and his minions ever use reportorial tools. Absolute hacks. Until the Twins Daily collective and Berardino showed up, we've had very little decent baseball reporting in our market, IMO. Reusse is utterly ridiculous.

    Reusse should have no credibility in the future.

    Miller and Bollinger are ok, too. Maybe they haven't figured out yet that posting nonsense can get a lot of page hits.

    A few years ago I think it cost punto and Cuddyer some time, does any one else remember that?
