Mike Berardino wrote a very nice article on Daniel Palka, talking about his relationship with former Twins outfielder Shane Robinson. The two met six years ago in Atlanta, and Palka says that he's learned a lot from him, despite the fact that they are polar opposites on the field.
Robinson can help Palka with his outfield defense, and he is thought of as having a very strong mental-side of the game.
I like this line from Mike:
If Kyle Schwarber, another burly former college masher with a sweet lefty swing, can handle left field for the World Series-champion Chicago Cubs, maybe Palka can do the same one day for the Twins.
I'd say it's a big IF for both of them...
