Wow its like a college baseball Friday Night for Twins affiliates!  Lots of big names on the mound.  Poor Andro...unless he throws a no hitter, noone will be talking about him on Saturday.

I made the plunge and bought MiLB.TV this year. These games are often much less depressing than the Twins, especially when the latter are being Yankeed. Not sure whom I'll watch tonight, but there are a lot of choices. (Even the Twins ... maybe ... at least until they get depressingly far behind.)

Odds it is one time, and when Mejia is back, he goes back down? 80% for me (not what I'd do, but what I think the FO will do).

I don't know, Enns was already a fringe guy and could be dropped from the 40-man when Ervin returns, or Trevor May. And now Enns is scuffling. I wouldn't be surprised if they are looking to replace him soon (and the replacement could be David Hale).

I can't see how Enns or Myles Jaye would keep Gonsalves from a promotion. Hale either. Any of those guys could just as easily go to the pen or released. In fact, the team probably should have put Enns in the pan already considering how the MLB club's bullpen lefty situation has reached Armageddon's door step and they could use a miracle, no matter how remote.

they seem reluctant to move on from belh starter to potential RP for some reason.
