    This is sound baseball logic and can not be refuted.

    You're right, the stars will almost certainly align soon in a way that brings the ball in contact with Hicksie's bat at a higher rate, leading to the belief by the Twins that he suddenly 'gets it', thereby prolonging the inevitable to everyone's detriment. But hey, good defense in CF.

    Seriously... I think he will be in Rochester real soon. I mean real soon. It's gotta be killing the kid.

    Rick Ankiel has 12 k's in 14 trips to the plate.

    The dumbest thing the Twins can do is start a rookie and they did.

    Rick Ankiel may go down in history as the most out of control baseball player ever.

    Pitcher... Rushed to the big leagues only to miss the strike zone by yards consistently...

    Re-invents himself and makes it back to the big leagues with prodigious power only to produce strike outs at a stunning rate.

    He's like "the natural" but completely flawed.

    Got a late start and had to watch via tape delay. What a waste of DVR space.

    Not to mention that it will now, given your prodigious memory, be with you forever.


    Lucky you.

    It's too bad the Mets travel on to Denver, otherwise they could drop Hicks off at Rochester on their way home Sunday night.

    Gardy was not happy with the Hicks duck walk into 2B in the 7th. Rookies tend to not like Gardy's doghouse.
