Nicely done, Nick! I think it's important for people (fans and the Twins and especially Gibson) to be patient. When I talked to Kyle at Twins Fest, we didn't talk much baseball, but I did ask him how he's feeling. You could see in his eyes that he is very excited, excited to get it going and to show he's healthy and to make the team. That's great to see! But I also talked to Mike Radcliff a bit later, and he said Kyle is doing great and where you would hope he would be, but that they are going to have to really work to keep him from trying to do too much throwing. There certainly is a fine line there. As Gardy said in his interview, there will be some limits on him. As much as I like him and would love to see him make the Opening Day roster, what's best for Gibson in the long-term is hopefully all that matters to anyone!
