I can't wait until the Twins have new FO people.
Do or do not. There is no try.

So exciting. I thought everyone said Meyer was next?

Meyer's turn doesn't line up with our openings, until next May.

Define "everyone".

But yes, very uninspired. My personal opinion is the unexpected injury to Gibson and rain shortened May start scrambled them a little this weekend and may have changed plans. I expect something different coming out of the day off, but probably shouldn't hold my breath.

Eventually it reaches a point where you have to ask yourself just what the heck is going on, no?

You'd think they'd bring one of them up just to try to generate some interest from the fanbase, even if they think it's the wrong move.

It is like the Twins don't realize they are a 90 loss team.

Reality.

Not saying Darnell isn't behind May and Meyer, but he's actually a prospect, as opposed to Pino or Johnson.

And if you look at the rotation days, it's too early for May and Meyer to pitch Saturday.

Reality.

Y'know, it's alright to have Kris Johnson, Yohan Pino, or Logan Darnell in the back of your starting rotation.

But not all three at the same time. I wasn't frustrated with Gibson's slo-mo progression to the majors last season, but I'm starting to get peeved that May and Meyer haven't reached the majors yet.

On the plus side he's kind of a prospect!

Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

It's like they want Minnesotans to collectively turn off their television sets and go outside.

But apparently not outside to the ballpark.

Meh. I could give a rat about generating fan interest; I care about the longterm development of our longterm prospects. Jerk Darnell around, but I want ovenmitt hands on Meyer. This is (yet another, ugggg) developmental season; let's see what we have in our marginal assets and let's be conservative in our development of the guys we expect to be part of our future.

Meyer dominated his last start, but only for six innings--that doesn't spell longevity in a major league game. Really. If the team is concerned about pitch counts, especially at the per inning bases, are we really surprised that Meyer wasn't called up? Meyer and May are just on different schedules than the rest of the AAA in pitchers, as the Twins are regarding them as longterm assets. The Twins, seemingly, are seeing what they have in Pino, Johnson and now, Darnell, seeing if there's any thing worth holding onto or peddling into value elsewhere. It's frustrating way to run the organization for the fans, but at this point in the season with these results, I'd be using the major league team as an agar dish for fringe talent, too.

Too prospecty.

A little bit in the front office's defence, Darnell is named after me as my name is Logan...so I've got to give them a free pass on this one. The fact that he is left handed is a bonus.

Clearly the biggest benefit of this is that in March of next year we can total up all the starts given to Pino, Swarzak, Darnell, Johnson, Correia, etc. so we can justify why next year we're making that .500 push.

(Only, maybe, half kidding)

Maybe, but I vote Hamburger, in the wake of the Knoblach Twins/HOF fiasco, you have the local bad-boy-back-to-make-good angle to wipe out that bad karma....add into that a "Make Your Own Mark Hamburger Night"....and the whole promotion seems irresistible.

That's what's sorta weird...ultimately, that's the Twins' only long term goal, generating fan interest.
