C'mon Escobar! A real center fielder would've had that one.

Anyone notice, Correia's ERA is below 6 now.


Of course I say this, then Corriea gives up a 2 run homer. Nice call!

What are the odds Guierrer gets in today? 100%?

The other candidate would be Brooks Raley. The chances of him making it to Minnesota are rather slim, or should be slim. Although, with this management of the roster, you never know..


The bullpen's a little beat up right now, it might be time to call up another reliever.

Yes. Whichever one is the best fielder and hitter.

Well lost Brooks Raley to the Angels
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Chris Hermann with a ground ball to the right side, for the 400th time in this young season.

Fangraphs says it's only the 382nd, but it sure seems like 400.

Which player Raley or Matti G would likely be more of a long term player?

Seems like a bad move.

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

The answer to this question, and all others directed at the nature of the Twins' roster decisions, is that you're not the Twins.

A 25 year old with a 3.68 ERA and 19 Ks in 14 IP or a 35 year old who picks up Gardy's kids from school?

Seems like an easy choice.

Who are the Angels dropping from their 40-man that we get? :)

Hermann is wishing someone would get healthy so he can go to AAA and face pitchers he can hit.

He could drive over to Fort Wayne. The Midwest League is closer to his speed.

They lost Brooks Raley.

To keep Matt Guerrier.

Okay, have at it, boys. I'm done defending anything this front office does right now.

Unbelievable. I don't even care about Brooks Raley but MATT GUERRIER?
