Kubel, Escobar, Hermann has got to be the worst outfield in the history of the game. Is Gardy trying to prove a point? If I'm Correia I'm just pissed.

Fuld on concussion DL, you can't make this stuff up!

Well that probably should have been an easy DP
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Anybody think Hermann makes it to tomorrow without being DFA'D?

I think he's safe until Hicks or Fuld comes back

He may throw a shutout today. He looks on.


(Why not go all out?)

He may throw a strike. He looks on.

(Or is that hubris?)

Since we have a wealth of Shecky's here today, I'll be serious. I expect Herrmann to be optioned, not DFA'd. Assuming Hammer is shifted to the 60-day to make the spot for Guerrier, I think they will DFA somebody (maybe the new kid claimed from Toronto) and promote Parmelee pretty quick.

A strikeout would be good here.

Correia is one of the last guys I'd expect to strike out two guys to get out of a mess, even if they didn't give him credit for the first one. He's keeping us in the game at least albeit having to throw a ton of extra pitches to get there.

Nice call. Now I'll try. Dozier is about due for a dinger.

Hey, the Twins' starters have been less terrible at striking out batters lately!

this has been a silver lining moment

I'll take Escobar.

And the adventure continues ....



Plus I liked this tidbit:



It seems to have been overlooked with the rest of the Twins roster turmoil, but Kubel's slugging pct over the last 23 games .265 with a .574 OPS. I think there should be more concern about Kubel than just overworking him.

It's possible he has those numbers because he has been overworked.

there's a fighting chance Kenny Wilson gets called up.

The Twins batters have been more terrible at not getting struck out lately...

What's the opposite of a silver lining?

Nunez is on his way up, by car, to try to make the game, so 3 catchers, 1 DH, 4 SS 0 outfielders on the active roster.

It would seem to be almost the required move to offset Guerrier.

He has described every piece of the puzzle but stopped short of assembling it, which is entirely understandable given the nature of his employment.
