This is a joke right? Arcia, a young rookie who's impressed in his SSS is once again on the bench for the 4th game in a row.

This is a little strange. If it means giving Parmelee one last extended look I can live with it, but Arcia should be playing every day somewhere.
Papers...business papers.

I think it's a combo of needing to see what they have in Parmelee and Arcia having a couple games in a row with some pretty bad ABs. I think they have a couple of guys in the minors that deserve a shot in the majors if Parmelee can't hack it, so I think that is the primary motivation.

Not sure if they are thinking of bring Buxton up or Colabello or maybe Thomas. They could play Colabello at 1st if his defense is OK and maybe put Morneau at DH. Buxton probably isn't ready for another year anyway. Thomas seems most like to get the call...I think.

Except it's Doumit in RF...not Parmelee or even the newest guy in town Colabello

Yeah, that's the confusing part. Doumit isn't really doing much either.

Gardy needs a win, tonight is probably their best shot of the 4 in this series. He's going with what he considers his "A" lineup for doing as such.

Dioumit .1055 OPS versus Porcello.

Carroll is .368 BA vs. Porcello
Willingham is .600 vs. Porcello

Twins as a team are batting .325 vs. Porcello.

Tonight looks like the Twins best shot this series, unless Deduno is taking his magic pills on Friday.

At least Gardy has more evidence for this move than he has for "Deduno gives the Tigers fits".

From LEN3s report.

The manager was pretty blunt before the game.``Egos are going to have to stay on the bench,'' he said. ``We need to win a ballgame.''

Let's hope he's not talking about Arcia.

Arica is way better the pn Ryan Doumit will ever be. No question.

It's ironic Gardy would mention egos...

It's pretty easy to do the math. And to know that Gardy always throws the rookies under the bus.

Yeah, none of his current favorites have ever been rookies.

Unreal. The team's second best hitter on the bench the day after he hits a pinch hit HR. Gardy needs to go if this is for real.
