Seth, what do you think of them toying with Florimon at SS, then moving Dozier to 3rd? I don't care for the idea. Just getting established at SS and bump over? Of course, the Twins infield is so weak power-wise, what does it matter? What a team they have assembled.

I'd like to see what Florimon does in Rochester for a month (rather than just 4-5 days) to see what they really have on him. Reports are quite good...

There is a Nishioka thread up, and it got me thinking that about Dozier struggles. Dozier really isn't hitting any better than Nishioka ever did and he's got 9 errors in a month and a half. He could obviously still use some time at AAA to get everything ironed out too. Dozier isn't close to one of the top 5 problems with the Twins, and there's not exactly anyone at Rochester playing better, but those really aren't the best excuses to keep him around. The Rays just DFAed Drew Sutton.....he's sort of a Luke Hughes-style infielder who has very spotty opportunities the past few years. I think I'd pick him up and send Dozier to AAA. Carroll, Sutton & Casilla can handle the middle infield for a while and we can hope that Sutton will respond to a chance to start the way Plouffe has.
