I have to really stop the hype on Sano at this point. This has actually become worrisome. BUT, here is my crazy thinking . . . what if the Twins just promoted him to Fort Myers now (roughly) anyway? A new environment again, getting him used to where he will be anyway next year, etc. etc. I really think that some of the psychological issues are lost on the Twins minor league adminstration. As a stud prospect starting new at some place the next year seems quite different than getting even one month in at that place ahead of time. you know? I hope the Twins are smart here and promote Sano and Rosario (when he is back soon) to Fort Myers (throw Anderson Hidalgo and Danny Santana up to NBR--as a make it or break it for Hidalgo and a welcome to 2013 for Santana).
I would say it's highly unlikely that Sano gets promoted to Ft. Myers for a month to end this season for a couple of reasons. 1.) It wouldn't help his strikeout situation, unless you just think that a new environment will be a cure-all. 2.) Beloit is in the playoffs at the end of the season, and Sano should play in that. Rosario too. 3.) The defense needs so much work. 4.) and probably most importantly, I will be going to Beloit for games Aug 2-5, so I don't want him to move up until at least August 6th... That's only a little selfish, right?
