    No. There's probably at least 10 guys on the 40 man that can go.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    It's a Canadian thing.......and a Maple Leafs thing, the greatest hockey team on the planet to not win the Stanley Cup in 46 years, just ask a Toronto fan.

    Tutorial for Twins' starters: It is permitted, even encouraged, to get a hitter to swing and miss with two strikes or to not swing and allow a pitch to be caught by the catcher that passed through the strike zone.

    Their hockey team hasn't won anything since 1967 but they act like Yankee fans. Something like that,

    I have learned here at TD that technique uses up too many pitches.

    I fear the scoreless tie will not last through this half inning.

    There's a guy who needed to be speared. In the face.

    I don't know him. What did he do? I mean, I assume he's a hockey player, but why was he disliked?

    Michael Bourn, Jose Reyes, Chone Figgins--how many more "speed" guys are good free agent signings? I also reference this in regards to signing Jacoby Ellsbury.

    Nope. And with a GDP yet. BTW, there is the huge advantage of being a left handed pitcher. You can bet Goins would have stolen second after the leadoff hit against a righty.
