I don't get the Twins fascination with having journyman middle infielders and catchers proliferate the roster or the need to reward aging declining veterans that are fringe major league players like Bernier. Hopefully this will put an end to the at bats the Twins have been wasting on Eric Fryer.
They should DFA Florimon and Collebello after the Rochester season is over at least Collabello for sure.
It is obvious they are not going to bring Chris Collabello back after this season, not sure why they are bringing back Doug Bernier at age 34 to play out the string, this is silly I would rather see any at bats given
him to Jorge Polanco at least Polanco has a future in the big leagues. I don't even care if they do not fill Collabello's spot on the 40 man, just free the kid so he can get a chance to play somewhere else and continue his career. If they are going to reward Bernier for sticking it out at Rochester they should reward Collabello for the April he had with the Twins, at least they were relatively competitive back then which seems like an eternity ago. 18 games under500 and going no where ladies and gentleman your Minnesota Twins. I know a lot of people that are saying they are tuning out the Twins and are not going to watch or go to games anymore, these Twins have become worse than the Timberwolves when it comes to fan apathy, what other way is there to say it this Twins franchise is floundering. I get some of the other non-roster guys might still have potential, but Bernier what a complete waste of a 40 man spot. Yep the floundering and directionless Minnesota Twins, bet that is what Joe Mauer envisioned when he signed the deal, people may rip Joe but at least he has the talent to win at the highest of levels, you cannot say that about very many other players on the Twins roster.
