    At this point I'd be suprised if it's not Burroughs.

    I don't know why I forgot about those guys. I agree, one of those guys will probably get the second open spot on the 40 man.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Alex Burnett continues to get killed, this time by the Pirates C roster. But hey let's all remember he has great stuff.

    I don't think anyone expects Burnett to make the team at this point.

    What Mr. Ed said. Personally I would love for them to send him down. With injures though...he might stick around.

    Esmerling Vasquez gives up 2 runs, 11-6 final. Ugly in the bullpen again.

    Awesome to see the Prospect guys get some MLB action and have a good day!
    Scouting Report: Tools - Power: 30, Hitting: 50, Arm: 60, Defense: 40, Speed: 40. "Line drive swing and shows good contact and on-base abilities. Double's power at his peak. Strong arm from 2B or the OF, stiff hands. Not a fast runner, but above average instincts on the bases. Skinny body doesn't look the part, but can sneak up on you. ACL surgery sapped much of his athleticism." (Probably)
    Spring Training Regular since 2011.

    I agree with Fanatic Jack on his philosophy toward the Twins. The cutting of the payroll in the face of a new stadium, revenues among the highest in the league and tearing apart your team the last two years-- Look at what happened in the last two seasons: completely decimating the relief corp. Why such a wholesale change at one time? This season--not signing the core of your power base--Cuddyer, Kubel, Thome, not signing an elite reliever(Joe Nathan). What does this tell the fans and the team? This team is not built to last a long season. The only way we can have success is to play above ability--which is rare!
    This ownership two years ago was considered the richest in baseball--Forbes Mag. The strength of this organization in in the lower minors. If so, then what should the ownership do until this group of players are ready for the majors? Sign quality free agents until this group is ready. But, this takes the will of the ownership. Now if was like Pittsburg, I would say ok--but, this franchise has the assets, but not the will. This is all on the Pohlads. Ryan and Gardenhire know what they are dealing with!
