Yeah Chris Archer just threw about 6 belt high 94 fastballs right by Arcia the other day. Swung under em just as Parker described. Clearly its a weakness that's being exploited.

Hope he figures it out. When he's able to connect, good things seem to happen.

Isn't that also true about ALL hitters, the obvious is being belabored here.

I'm in the Tweak it now camp. I am not a big fan of a sell of as there are not necesarrily any replacements available for some of the players we could trade and the return is not worth the effort in my mind. I would rather just trade Corriea and bring up May and Meyer. Maybe a reliever or 2 as well. I don't see the value of trading the offensive pieces unless the Twins want to roll with Pinto at Catcher the rest of the season. In that case we could trade Suzuki. I don't see it that way at this time so I wouldn't do that. But I think we should keep Willingham and Morales and let them go as free agents in the offseason.

Boy that Rickey Henderson card brings flashbacks.

Add that to the barrel chested shirtless Kirby Puckett in that series too.

What's the benefit there? Several TD posters seem to think Morales looks washed up and suddenly forgot how to hit but once the rust is completely gone I don't think that will not be the case and other teams are going to want him. Playing out a meaningless season and letting these guys walk at the end of the year for a return of zero makes little sense.
