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.
Lighten up Francis....

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

I want to know if Guerrier can catch.

And possibly coach a little third base when needed.

One other thing: we've all known companies that aren't doing well, but kept promoting friends of the boss, even though just about everyone at the company thought there were dozens of more capable people. It's really demotivating, particularly to younger, talented performers. Of course, professional baseball is different from most businesses, and the incentives for young, talented performers are much greater than in nearly every other industry, but talented young minor leaguers are still young people, subject to the same range of emotions as any other young person.

Don't be a stranger

Guerrier has been taking flies in the outfield, 4th outfielder.

May all our prospects be All Stars and the beer be free.

If there is one thing you can never have enough of when you have a 2 man bench it is 35 year old washed up relief pitchers.
