Twins: SP Kevin Correia
Things to Think about:
1. Think about Escobar... Both Shortstops today have the last name Escobar and both are batting ninth. No real point to make... Just Think about it... Would You!!!
2. Think about Chris Archer... Archer was a former Cubs Prospect that the Rays acquired with a handful of others in the deal of Garza... We got Delmon Young in our deal for Garza. I didn't like that trade personally.
3. Think about Joe Maddon... Everybody loves Joe... Creative manager who puts out multiple lineups with players playing different positions every night. He's got good pitching so he wins... Or is that creativity?
4. Think about Ron Gardenhire... Just 5 wins from 1,000... Take that JOE!!!
5. Think about Research... I've requested a research grant to discover if research causes cancer in Rats. I'm just gonna research them and see what happens.

I guess we can call the area between 3rd and 2nd the Esco-barrio tonight.
No need to respond, I've given myself a 30 minute ban for that one.

8. Think about Joe actually winning games in the playoffs and taking the Rays to the World Series, take that Gardy!
May all our prospects be All Stars and the beer be free.

At the beginning of the year I thought I read that Escobar had a better defensive rep than Florimon. Any idea why the job was basically handed to Florimon? Is Florimon really that much better defensively?
Florimon was a starting AAA IL All Star last year at SS and was voted "Best Infield Arm" in the IL, as well. But you're right, he's probably only a marginally better glove than Escobar, maybe a little more range along with a better arm.
