    I'll throw one more thing out which is just pure speculation....did the Twins hurt him by calling him up straight from AA in September of 2011? He struggled mightily and has literally never been remotely the same player he was before that. You can write off last year to injuries (and we all did). But for a guy who was known as sort of mentally fragile (in that he gets down on himself when he struggles) was that the right move?

    We'll never know. That questions doesn't really have an answer. But I'll wonder about it.
    If Benson doesn't have the character to handle the struggle in his call up, he would never have made it in the majors anyway. Every player struggles. They need the strength to deal with it and find a way to get better. The call up did not change his character.

    I really don't think it is his ability to handle the struggle. I think he ran into better pitching. Lots of guys top out at AA.

    There is a 60 day option for the minors also. If Butera were placed on the 60 day from the minors does he count on the 40 man major league roster. If not, what's the point of the 60 day minor league disabled list?
