Thread: Anthony Slama Petition

  1. #61
    I agree with this petition. Why was he not called up?

    You're supposing they're perfect and don't make any mistakes. I knew more than they did about Jeff Gray, that's apparent.


    Slama will likely never amount to anything, but there's a problem with the process here.
    Dangit, I was supposed to have put in a :-) thing in my first post so you didn't view my post as a personal attack. Hope you didn't.

    AND, some of us should e-mail Mackey, LEN3, etc. and ask them to press for an explanation.

    Attack the issue on all fronts.
    Mackey is talking about it right now on 1500ESPN.

    Slama probably should have been called up, but he will get his chance next spring I suppose. I can't get too worked up over it.

    Let's hope he is smart enough to move on this winter, I'm assuming he is a minor league free agent this winter.
    It doesn't appear he has been treated fairly by the Twins for a few years.

    He won't get his chance here. As a minor league FA, it would be foolish for him to resign with the Twins. I don't understand why they wouldn't have just cut him if they had no intention of giving him an opportunity with the Twins.
    If Twins can't re-sign Hunter, plans are to trade, sign a FA or go in-house to find a replacement.

    Sign me up. I'm curious though, does the mlb site have Terry Ryan's email address as well?

    I would hope Terry Ryan wouldn't make decisions based off of 30 signatures from a bunch of pissed off fans on a message board... good lord, this is quite embarrassing. Put me down as a no.

    2:00pm on Wednesday is the last chance to lend your name to this petition and the petition will then be sent to Terry Ryan.

    Very Well... no it is.

    I'm in. Give Anthony Slama a fair shot and reward him for putting up numbers in AAA.

    That's either the early-afternoon Smirnoff talking or someone who embarrasses quite easily

    I don't think any of us would expect for changes to be made based on this. It's more about being heard and pointing out to the front office what many people's perception is of the situation. I would think that taking a chance to address a group of passionate and fairly well educated fans is a good way to keep people interested and supportive in a rough patch for the team. Understanding how/why certain decisions are made is not a huge thing to ask. And I think it is good business.

    Yes, let's trust the Twins to subjectively evaluate another player based on a couple of innings of spring training instead of two years of undeniable success in AAA.

    After all, the virtually scouting-only approach is working out great again this year, isn't it?
