Don't look now, Mastroianni, but Danny Valencia is batting .293 at Rochester, with a couple of home runs. Today would be a good game to get your batting average back up above the Plouffe Line.
I personally don't wanna see Valencia back with the Twins until he has got rid of his prom queen attitude. A little humility will go along way, even help his batting AVG

What about wilkin ramirez and eventually Valencia again and send down mastro and kamatsu. You still have revere who can be a 4th outfielder/spark off the bench/pinch-run, and ramirez who can hit for power while playing the corners/dh. Just a though but I think you could have a lot more MLB looking lineups and bench options that way...... I have a feeling Valencia will be back up fairly soon... Before all-star break? And if Plouffe gets his bat going we might have a consistent looking lineup (barring injury). Span dozier Mauer willingham morneau doumit valencia plouffe carroll

Plouffe there it is!
The Plouffe Line keeps getting farther out of reach for poor Mastro.
Later update: E9. That might be just about it for Darin.
Further update: being pinch-hit for by Casilla can not be a good omen for one's major league stay.

Agree with that sentiment. Mastro to the minors in..........well pretty soon. I suppose Valencia would be the most likely recall. I thought Diamond did a decent job, pitching around three errors and at least one other ball that should have been fielded. The defense has been good this year, so I guess we can chalk up this game as an anomaly.
Tomorrow is a big day. De Vries make his debut. Hope he keeps the ball in the yard.
