Well then.  They must plan on attempting to rebuild him completely.

 

This has had good results in the past.

My thoughts exactly.Titanium leg and all.Also, if I had walk up music, it would be something like that sweet 70's style action music.

But I suspect this is more of a "Fall Guy" type of situation.

There has to be a disciplinary message here for Sano. That said I never thought he would be sent below AAA ball
TwinsWorld: Did you hear we just updated the Stadium Club?

If I wanted balls and strikes called by a robot, I would get an Xbox!

I would prefer they discipline him behind closed doors and have him work with the best available coaches and trainers instead. And I feel like it is a safe assumption that the best available coaches and trainers are not the ones we have with our high A affiliate.

Yeah, they'll win the series, instill a modicum of hope and then...I can only assume the Twins have the Orioles next, or Royals.  Someone really bad they can lose to.

Probably true, except that the next series is against the BoSox.

I would assume the opposite. Not only are the Miracle housed there. So are the GCL Twins, the team made up primarily of first time pros. And their roaming coaches all use Fort Myers as home base.

I would imagine the behind closed doors disciplinary action has already occurred, hence such a harsh public one.
