We'll never know for sure unfortunately. My guess is he would have been given the chance, but I don't think he would have flourished like he did in New York. The previous regime was too far behind from a coaching/tech standpoint I doubt they would have fixed him.

In NY there is just a different culture than when Hicks was here.As long as you produce you are good but if you don't watch out.There are high expectations not only from the fans but the manager and teammates as well.MN didn't have that culture.Seemed to me it was based on if the manager like you or not and if you were outspoken it did not go well for you.

Wow. That’s the worst slash line I’ve ever seen.

Like Tim Tebow numbers without God on his shoulder telling him when to swing.

Kennys Vargas isn't doing well overseas...

.203/.345/.319 1 HR in 84 PA. With a 25 Ks and 13 BB.

 

 

Maybe like in Mr Baseball they will find a hole in his swing??

 

Vargas was sent down to the minors a few days ago so that hole might be found there.

Hitting .307 / .877 ... and he's still only 28 years old. (BABIP high, as noted).

Also reminds me of Jake Taylor in Major League. "How'd you end up back with the Indians?". "Ah, I couldn't cut it in the Mexican Leagues."

Just ask the opposing pitchers. they seem to be finding the hole in his swing with regularity...

Probably that counts as "didn't know". :)

Hicks was a lazy person when he played ball for the Twins.One can only hope that his injuries are real and he's not just milking them. (In case you didn't notice, I didn't like him when he was here. I was glad he left. And I don't care about any good fortune he may have had once he left.)

I see you're in CA...did Hicks thrash you soundly on the golf course?

Kendrys Morales was traded to the Yankees for a PTBNL.
