Phil Miller updated the situation on the AFL picks today, in a summation that took more page space than the game summary of the Twins walk-off loss to KC. Mike Radcliff was the source for some in-depth commentary on the big announcement and the Burdi snafu:
The Twins will also send four pitchers, though only three have been settled on so far: righthander Jason Adam and lefthanders Mason Melotakis and Taylor Rogers, all at New Britain.
A fourth pitcher, Nick Burdi, was incorrectly listed on the Rafters’ roster, but Radcliff said he was only one of “a few candidates” for the remaining spot.
All three pitchers are serious candidates to be in Minneapolis soon, perhaps even next season, Radcliff said
This explanation invites more questions than it answers. Such as....
1) How did the Salt River team know to post Burdi to their roster?
2) Dustin Morse made the official announcement online, sans Burdi. Exactly when was he officially removed from the remaining spot?... and more importantly, why?
3) If the three pitchers that did make the cut are "serious candidates to be in Mpls. soon", where does that leave "only one of several candidates", Nick Burdi?
