Joe Christensen: Valencia Replaces Injured Plouffe

So what do we get out of Danny this time around? He definately spent enough time in Rochester to think things over and appreciate the position he was in and the opportunities that may or may not lay ahead. It also had to be eye opening to see the results of Plouffe and the real possibility that he may never get another chance at the major league level with the Twins.
Was he humbled? Was that one of his problems? Perhaps he played above what could be expected long term in 2010 and that both 2011 and so far in 2012 were more of his normal level of play. I'm sure he sees this as a huge chance to prove that he belongs in the majors and will give us the best he has got for the next week. I'm sure he will get a lot of time at 3rd until Plouffe comes off the DL.
you mean like parmele got in his 3 day stint?

Am I crazy or does he look even more incompetent than that from the right side? Some of his at-bats are brutal to watch against left-handed starers.
Yeah I'd say so, if the Twins could get a guy like Shoppach that would be a pretty damn good backup platoon. Doumit and Shoppach and mixing Joey in there from time to time. Hell finally getting rid of Sal's kid would be worth it alone.

I hope he sticks with the club when Plouffe comes back. He can drive the ball when his head is on the ball.
Personally... My leash is pretty short with him though. It's up to Danny... It always has been.
It's too bad he doesn't have any Catching experience... At least that I know of. If he could add third catcher to his job description. It would be a nice plus.
And there's the rub. Sal Jr continues to make himself indispensible. The only way DVal would stick past Sunday is via waiver trade or going back to 12 pitchers with Perduno/Perdomo heading back to Perditiono.
