Is Jason Tyner available somewhere? He hit a home run in Cleveland once. Rene Tosoni just signed with our local Sioux City Explorers, so he could come back too! Where is Brian Dinkelman? He's a .300 hitter at the ML level. Lots of potential options out there!

His right to be furious correlates to the amount of influence he had on the Bartlett and Guerrier decisions.


Show proof of the amount of influence he had on the roster.
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

that was boom boom's point.....he can be furious if he had little control, he can't if he had a lot of control. boom boom did not state what level of control he had at all.

One of the best opening day rosters in years. Now go get 'em.

Yeah, I left that one kind of open.

Some managers have a lot of influence, and some have very little. They all have some. Maybe Ryan and Antony foisted Bartlett and Guerrier on Gardenhire, in which case he has a right to be furious.

if Correia can just strike out the next 25 guys, it won't matter who's in center.

Nice throw by Santana. That's a tough play for Escobar. A regular CF probably catches that

Gardy loves him some veterans and scrappy utility guys, and I have to think he "approved this roster." I guess we'll never know.

Mauer is frustrated by his back. Is there anyone that didn't think he'd be out a week?

Anyone got money they want to place on the numbe of days Mauer is unavailable before they DL him? Is there a 1B in AA or AAA?
