It's too early to tell if he's going to be one of those guys with an ongoing tendency to self-destruct, but he's waving a big red flag. Makes me glad we have Dozier and Polanco around.
The Twins said that Polanco will be used as a shortstop going on (and this is great news), so he is not 2B depth unless something happens

Why the Twins would consider using Polanco at shortstop only escapes me, doesn't that restrict their options in the middle infield severely?
They already know he can play 2B at a high level, now they are going to try for a home run and see if he can play SS.

Berardino's "source with knowledge of the situation"? One source, unnamed, uncorroborated. Not enough.
You can argue that it's more than a coincidence if you want, but that's jumping to a conclusion in a way that respects neither the player's privacy nor his integrity.

As for the cocaine accusation, I thought there were plenty of sources indicating this was something he took while rehabbing. This is new, and hopefully the agent is telling the truth here.
