Gardy said that his "phone is on fire" and encouraged the media to hurry up to his post-game presser. Sounds like a couple moves are going to be made...

I guess now would be the time to fire away.

I'd assume Nunez is definitely coming up, Santana and Darnell are going down... which means another position player. Arcia?

Oh you know the Twins.......If Bartlett not on team, they have to have Guerrier on the team. lol But I agree Nunez and maybe Parmelee for Herrman

Why would Darnell go down? Don't they need a long man?

They need to make a decision on Guerrier today, so that's probably Darnell being sent down. Hicks should be back in a couple days too from the concussion list.

Gruyere comes up, because a rebuilding team whose philosophy it is to promote young guys from the minors can never have too many 35 year old RP.

Nunez comes up, Santana down.

Mauer to the DL (shockingly fast for this club), Parms up.

What I just typed is probably an opinion, not a fact. I mean, I'm usually right, so you should maybe assume it is or will be a fact soon, but that's up to you. :) Also, I am NOT trying to convince anyone I am correct, I'm just talking here, not arguing.

Seth and I discussed last night; we think Swarzak would go back to that role.

Both Guerrier and Parmelee would require making room on the 40-man roster.

Hicks could be sent to Rochester for rehab.

Yup, but this is the deadline, and they can't risk losing him, so someone will be culled from the 40 man (probably an OF, /snark), and he'll be up.

I'm sure this is sarcasm on your part. How is losing Guerrier a risk? They have nothing to lose by having him opt out.

Guerrier's only value to us is sentimental. The Twins should cut him lose, maybe Detroit would be interested in his services considering their awful pen.

I think that losing Guerrier would hurt the Twins about as much as Bartlett's retirement...

At this point I'd like to see them have Darnell in the rotation in Deduno's spot and call it a day.

When the Twins call up Guerrier I'm going to pour out three beers and weep. I can't understand that move, no way, no how. Jason Bartlett was a hard enough pill to swallow for this ball club.

I hope that at least it is Milwaukee's Best or something like that...

Guerrier? You mean the guy who's given up two HR's and 4 BB's in 9 AA and AAA innings? Who had a 2 ERA for the last time in 2009? Must be coming up to do something other than pitch.

Has he been taking flies in CF during BP and been a good guy in the clubhouse?

Don't be a stranger
