    I wonder how many teeth-gnashing posts will result from this?

    I'm going with over. It's obvious that when the Twins DFA a guy and he gets claimed, he was the best player ever. On the other hand, if the Twins claim a guy, he's clearly just some other team's reject.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Tyler Robertson's dad works in the Nationals front office (and is also a former scout for the Twins):

    Do you think the Nationals will bring him up for their series this weekend?

    Good luck, Tyler. I think he'll crack the roster eventually. I find it fine we shipped him off because we have a good enough bullpen. (for now.)

    Well "teeth-gnashing" may be hard to define but I'll go under. Robertson didn't excite people with raw talent like Benson did. There was still a lingering memory of Benson being a top 3 organizational prospect. No such distinction for Robertson though I do have to say I was pretty happy for the guy when he finally got promoted last year after seven years struggling in the minors.

    Here's the deal...

    Tyler Robertson isn't "The one I Love" but I don't want to be in "Ignoreland" either. We tend to "Bang and Blame" players like Tyler because their failures come at key times and the baseball sky can "Fall on Me" when it happens... Tyler Robertson has the potential to "Drive" teams forward at key times as long as you don't expect them to be "Superman".

    As for Tonight... a little "South Central Rain" has left me with no Twins to watch so all I can do is post with thoughts of Tyler Robertson and Dan Rather... Sitting here "Losing my Religion" with a can of "Orange Crush" wondering "What's the Frequency Kenneth".

    If he could harness his stuff, he could be a LOOGY for a long time. So far he has just driven GM's and managers to distraction.

    I'm actually very happy he's completely out of our hands. I was hoping he would get claimed, so we never have to worry about him being back.

    Indication of how weak the system was at the time?

    Good luck after the Twins series, Tyler.

    And Don't Go Back to Rockville.
