Article: Get to Know: Doug Bernier

Around the time he was called I was in a store near where I live in California, grabbing a 6 pack, while wearing a twins shirt. The beer delivery guy came up to me and too my utter shock started up a Doug Bernier conversation. They used to play together (I forget which level) and he had got a call from Bernier about his promotion and how excited he was about it.

Since we are going to loose 1 of the pitchers, probably Diamond. I wonder if Bernier will get the call if Florimon starts the season on the DL.
Could be. They may want to give the starts to Escobar and would need another IF backup. We still may need to add another OF and/or DH to the 40-man (Kubel, Mastroianni, or Ramirez, most likely), so the other NRIs like Bernier have a fairly uphill battle.
Personally, as a fan I wouldn't mind seeing Santana get a little look, if we need short term SS help. Nothing like the Hicks experience -- keep him out for opening day, maybe, then bat him 9th a few times.
