If my math is correct, Rosario can be activated after NB's next 4 games? When he is activated, can he be assigned to any team?

I really wish Thorpe and Gonsalves would get promoted to CR. The starters, apart from Stewart and Slegers, make me depressed. Which is the best reason to make a change, my feelings are the most important after all.

My understanding is that he'll be playing primarily the outfield in Fort Myers once he's activated from the suspension list.

Your feelings are important, but probably not as important as the prized left arms of those young kids you mentioned. Short season opens in a little more than three weeks. I'd expect them both to be in E-town. Gonsalves will probably end his season in Cedar Rapids as some of those starters start to hit innings limits. They will be even slower with Thorpe.

As it turns out, the first home run Mildren gave up last night has a nice little story behind it (though not really from the Twins perspective).

Commander Lee? As in Clone Commander Lee or as Commander Robert E. Lee (he had that title for about 3 months after Jefferson Davis released command?)

Mostly it's about Brett Lee, who has great command.
