A couple things came to mind when reading that article:


1) It seemed when things were going best for Sano, he was hitting hard hit balls to the opposite field on a regular basis. Will he try to find this approach again, or will the emphasis on the HR ball leave him as a dead-pull hitter? 


2) Where does he hit in this lineup? Does he stay in Marwin's spot...6th-8th? 

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

“Miguel Sano goes 4-for-4 with a home run for Class A Fort Myers, then packs his bags for Class AA Pensacola. Sano expected to be promoted for the weekend, sources say, and Twins now target a May 12 return to the majors.” - Phil Miller

I always wanted to know what it would be like to simultaneously experience the 1918 flu,  Great Depression, and 1968 mass protests while Andrew Johnson was president.

It’s up to Sano. The organization shouldn’t cut him... shouldn’t trade. He develops for us or he signs a minor league contract for someone else when he hits free agency.

If he doesn’t produce during the time between now and free agency. The last option is used and he gets little playing time.

A lot of the money is on the line for him. It’s up to him to get that big contract for himself.

This isn’t on the Twins. It’s on him. It has nothing to do with playing RF ruining him. He’s been given more opportunity that most others get. It’s about hitting his pitch and playing baseball as a professional.

It’s all up to Sano. I wish him the best because we could use what he was promised to be.
