    Hit? I wonder if the fielder wasn't Cano if it would be a hit.

    Ok... I checked it out... I spent the last 10 minutes reading through every single TD post in history.

    It's the first time... The closest was a post made by LaBombo... All he typed was "Ham Sandwich".

    Believe me - it is not that high of a count.

    I remember that post.

    It was in the "posters brighter than Chief" thread, if I recall correctly.

    Mostly agree. I think he can be an option at short. He can hit some, runs well and seems to have a good arm.

    Because he figures more prominently into the competitive future of the team, yeah, that's a good call.

    But Nolasco has been dreadful, is hurt, and signed to the second least-awful contract in the Twins org.

    Arcia could take a year off from baseball with a fanny pack full of Eurail passes and youth hostel vouchers, and come back next year looking like one of the best possibilities for a Twins player to have a good season.

    According to the search results, RB is the most prominent poster in terms of hamster references, with 2.

    Yeah... But I discounted those because of the infinite monkey theory.

    On Arcia, I really think he's close. He is being more patient and making better contact. Despite some bad misplays, I think he's much better in right this year.

    Its frustrating because he did nothing but hit as a minor leaguer (career .314 BA over 1800 PAs). So far in 2014 he has been doing more swinging and missing than just about anyone in baseball. Similar deal with Hicks too really (career .270 BA).

    Actually the penalty to their BAs after being promoted is almost identical - .076 points for Hicks and .075 for Arcia.

    We gotta be patient and wait for him to get it. When he does... It'll be awesome.
