    Were you in the 20 items or less line on top of that? I'm a strong believer we need to sanction violence against such people.

    was it Pino's "veteraniness" that tilted the decision this time? We all know Gardy's preferences for vets.
    This just in, per Berardino http://blogs.twincities.com/twins/20...art-thursday/:

    “He’s done it there at Triple-A now as well as anybody in that league,” Gardenhire said. “Can he do it here? Only one way to find out. We’re going to put him up here and see.”
    What happened to all of that DaVinci Code stuff yesterday, Gardy? I know this decision wasn't yours to make in the end, but isn't "only one way to find out" just as operative, if not more so, for your very best prospects?

    Because they, uh, are in violation of an unwritten rule against such behavior?

    It's the one time I would be ok hucking an object at another person's head.

    Ahh... so that's it! There's always an exception to the rule, even the unwritten ones. (I've gotta write that down....)

    Maybe the "mystery" involved a continuation of the Twins concerted movement this spring to get more 30+-year old veteran presence in the clubhouse, or maybe they just wanted to set a new record enabling just such a press release:

    Phil Miller @MillerStrib27m

    At 30 years old, Yohan Pino will be oldest pitcher to make debut in Twins history -- previous oldest was Andrew Albers, 27, last year

    3-4 good starts and maybe they can trade him at the deadline for a prospect

    I am hoping this call up is for a spot start, Pino starts Thursday and is moved to the pen afterwards then May starts Tuesday with Correia being pushed back a day. Probably hoping for too much though.
