You obviously can't read too much in to one inning of work each for Berrios and Meyer, or even a full game of ABs for Vargas. If one or more had laid an egg, it wouldn't have been cause for despair, so you can't get too overly excited just because they each performed relatively well.
Still, it was fun to see them all have some success. And when you consider that the Twins have several other prospects that are projected to be even better than this trio, it just demonstrates that Twins fans have some legitimate reasons to be optimistice about the team's future over the second half of this decade.

It is a bit, just a bit, but still a bit troubling that i have heard and seen several people bring up that they were relieved that Dozier didn't get blanked........ as they seem to have expected him to. It was quite a bit of charity that allowed him in the home run derby, and that kind of statement confirms and conforms to that idea. Good for him though. He didn't get blanked with his 350 and 380 foot taters. good thing he pulled the ball.
I think think getting blanked has nothing to do with HR prowess. Piazza once didn't hit any. Puig didn't last night. Dozier was a fine contestant at home. My assumption is that guys like Nelson Cruz and Jose Abreu said no. But I was glad that he did it.
