    Alex Burnett is a straight up BUM...What in the world would make anyone think he will be good...Why because he is 23 and pitched well at AA. Slama has much more promise than him and is not even on the 40-man roster. Burnett has 3 pitches with no movement and that just does not cut it in the pros. The Twins traded for a Burnett clone in Lester Oliveros and he is terrible too. Straight ball right down the middle of the plate. For all those people who have crowned Maloney and Doyle (2 more bums), who exactly have they pitched against. Waldrop and Gutierrez have a chance to good but will never get a chance.

    If they are the best, then they come North, but that wasn't what John's post was about. It was about fear of losing them.
    Lighten up Francis....

    He's doing really well. Supposedly he's scheduled for his first bullpen in early June. Terry Ryan was optimistic and said he would pitch this year... Doesn't mean with the Twins, but if he can even make a couple of starts in Ft. Myers, that would be great!

    Hopefully they take it easy on him this year and get him ready to start next year in Minneapolis. There is nothing worse than rushing a guy back from Tommy John and killing his confidence because he wasn't ready.

    I'd like to see Doyle and Manship on the Roster. I have a feeling Hendriks will see time in Rochester first, waiting until someone fails to provide.
