If he truely means this, Chris Colabello should get a shot. Becuase of his position, it would be hard to find him AB's. But the guy at least deserves a taste. I hope we resign him and he can play for Rochester next year.

I think finding AB's for most of the guys we call up is going to be a challenge. Yes, Parmelee, Slama, Vasquez, Colabello, Carson, Dozier, and Manship, should be called up, but just finding time for these guys to play is going to be a little difficult, not to mention adding some of these guys to the 40-man roster, because we already have several outfielders and infielders deserving playing time up in the majors before the players we call up.
True, but given that the MILB seasons will be done, who cares? I agree on those seven exactly. It's a small amount of money to pay them and there is a good case for 2013 to be made for all of them in some capacity.

If he is called up this Sept, does that start his Service time "Clock"?
If so best to not call him up and hopefully the Twins can wait until after June 2013 to get him with the big league club. If it does not start his service time clock then yes call him up
Hicks - Same as above - but if he is added to the 40 man during the season does that lessen the amount of years he has before he must be called up?
Dozier - No Scholarships. Keep him down and off the team. He has not shown he is a quality MLB player
Ramirez - Yes. He is interesting and not under control so it would be good to see what he can do.
Manship - I would like to see start games. I think he is better as a Starter

Gardy probably would like to learn more about Escobar.
Dozier hasn't earned to go back.
I like others would like to see Slama but the Twins FO think otherwise.

Also note that Escobar has done about as much as Dozier in the last month, so you can't say that one deserves it and the other 'hasn't earned it.' Of course, two weeks isn't enough time to evaluate anything... which of course, should be the theme for September and spring training.

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?
Posted 28 August 2012 - 08:38 AM
I do not think Slama will be here, but it is a possibility Dozier will. Unless the Twins decide to put Casilla on the bench for September, Dozier's opportunities will be limited.
I believe the Twins would like to see how Hicks and Arcia far against major league pitching. This will help with what to do with Span in the offseason.

I'd love to see Parmelee again, but that means fewer AB's for Morneau and Mauer. Arcia earned his cup of coffee. Might as well see what Manship and Vasquez can do, too.
Slama... Why not, o lord? Pitch him or set him free.

I also dont care if guys like Span, Mauer, Morny etc play. Mn knows exactly what they have.
Mn kept WRamos in AAA because of service time......that worked out well. Quit worrying about small market thinking

I don't know if the Twins will do this, but they could work them into the lineup to make it worthwhile - maybe 2-3 slots in the lineup per game. I wouldn't play more than that - most of the people in the stands are paying to see Mauer, Morneau & Span, not Parmelee, Escobar & Colabello, but they would still get some major league at-bats.
