It was mentioned in another thread, but thought the news deserved its own post.

Brice Zimmerman@ZimMiracleBefore heading out on four-game trip to Tampa, Miracle have a few roster moves. Levi Michael comes over from GCL. Jorge Polanco to AA.

Should have been a couple of weeks earlier. Just another example of the Twins waiting too long on their promotions.
Papers...business papers.

Does +/- a couple of weeks really make a difference in the grand scheme of things?

I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that Drjim was posting with tongue firmly in cheek.

Um, Jorge. Don't unpack. You're going to Minnesota.

"Jorge, lo siento. Tu vas a Minnesota. No no no no no. Tu vas a jugar en Minnesota. Si. Es possible CF. No se. No se."
Do or do not. There is no try.

How will we know if Polanco is ready for AA competition if he keeps being called up to the Twins?

How will we complain about how conservative the Twins are if they call up A ball players to the majors?

If Polanco is successful in his time in Minnesota, how will people here tolerate making Buxton spend time in AA before being handed the CF job with the Twins?

Ha!! True enough... but some will just choose to think such ways.
