shs-59, Thanks for the link as I was at that game too. Wang-Wei Lin needs to step up or Max Kepler might be taking his place in a Snappers uni pretty soon. Nice to see Sano and Rosario make big impressions on non Twins fans too.

Joe Benson is having a tough time in Rochester. I also see that Tosoni is not playing and that the Twins have been using a catcher in left field--that can't be good.

Re: Benson, no surprised that he's struggling early. He'll be alright though. He had an 0-4 two days ago and people said he could have hit any of the balls harder in those at bats. Worry not a bout him.

Re: Tosoni, he'll likely be out a week yet. I don't have a problem with one of the three catchers playing a different position.
