Article: Introducing: The Eddie 400
Posted 23 January 2014 - 04:41 PM
I suggest a stealth campaign to build grassroots support for the Eddie 400. Whenever a shot of jag goes out to a party of people at a local club, the Eddie 400 logo will be there, on the napkin to create the positive mental association between Eduardo Escobar and plentiful drinking. Because, as we know, once you get the young people, the old people will follow out of shame.

Being a good guy is one thing, still have to be able to play at a higher level than the other player is another. It does not warrant a change when your ceiling is the guy you want to unseat. Now, if his ceiling was an Ian Desmond type numbers, I could support the notion. Thata is not Escobar.
Donuts to dollars he will be better with the bat than Florimon and pretty close with the glove at SS (his best defensive position)

I really enjoyed this artical and made me LOL several times. It came to the point where my co-workers were asking what I was laughing about! Perhaps it's for that reason, I am on board with your Eddie400 campain. Besides, what can it hurt!? It's not like were benching Cal Ripken Jr. or Ozzie Smith to see what the kid can do...

I have always wanted to see what the Twins have in EE, but in the end it probably doesn't matter because someone else will be playing shortstop when it really matters. I don't think it would hurt to see what EE can bring as we already know what Florimon can and cannot do.

I just saw Eduardo down at Fort Myers, and he had the best day for any Twin on the offense and defense. I approve the Eddie 400.
Now, where should I get my Eddie 400 tattoo?
