    Waldrop looks like by the numbers to be pitching better. We will see if it continues up here. For sure he get another shot at major league hitters on July 1 unless the Twins find a proven pitcher..

    I think this will be good for Manship. I think he's going back to Rochester to be a starter. He'll be better as a starter and I fully expect him to be back with the big club in the future. He is a very talented young man.

    Waldrop had struck out five of 58 batters in Rochester. Here's hoping he can get a lot of ground balls.

    Bert told me today that getting the right sink is all about the arm angle. Hopefully Waldrop has lots of arm angle.

    Not a Manship fan. Unless the starting staff goes to seed, he really isn't right for a role in the Twins' bullpen. They have a long man (Swarzak) and Manship wasn't a fit to pitch in high leverage late innings. Waldrop will be a middle to setup guy and hopefully will get enough ground balls to make up for his lack of ability to miss bats. I have pictured Waldrop as a Guerrier type and his comeback from adversity is a good story.

    Manship has been ineffective in the majors in 4 seasons. (And the last time he was an above average pitcher was in Fort Myers in 2008.) Will be out of options next season, which means happy trails. I wonder if he is the guy going to the Pirates. Not much of a loss for the Twins.

    Pitched well in some spot starts a few years ago. Got a critical win at the end of the season to keep the Twins in the playoffs. Was hurt most of the year last year but still was part of the no-hitter at Rochester. Good numbers in Spring Training, good numbers in AAA, and good numbers when he was first pulled up. I think he just needs a little more work to get back the way he was a couple of years ago.

    I was waiting for this move to happen at some point. I think Manship would have been gone earlier if Slama and Oliveros were healthy

    I was hoping that the PTBNL would be Nick Blackburn. Is there any chance a team would take him if the Twins chipped in 3/4 of his salary for this season and next year?

    Hopefully thats the last we see of Manship. I just think he's a AAAA player.

    But how will the team know if they have a good long reliever without Blackburn?

    He's done in the organization. Waldrop is still part of the future....if he can get guys out.

    Manship, Gray, and Swarzak need to be out of the organization. This is clear.

    I pointed this out in the offseason, but whatever.

    What's your beef with Swarzak? He's perfectly suitable in his current role.
