Sorry that it really did not dawn on me that the true subject of the other poster was not the career of Michael Tonkin but their personal feelings. I don't think that way. Craig Breslow, you know that guy 0 ERA in a small sample size for Cleveland, would be proof that no one is out of chances if someone thinks you have talent. Tonkin aint going anywhere
It's a fan message board, it is full of opinions by definition.
Breslow has made 4 appearances with Cleveland, with an average score differential of 6.75 runs. He's an arm filling out expanded rosters too, with not much of a chance at making their playoff roster.
I get this "it's not over until it's over" thing, but if Tonkin's Twins career was a ball game, his team is down 8 runs going into the final two innings. Nothing wrong with mentioning probability at that point, and not just possibility.
