    umterp23 got a reaction from Doctor Gast in A Different Idea For Twins Catching   
    Pretty big gamble to trade both but very interesting concept.  Garver with the injury last year to the you know whats, to me is the long term concern.  Turning 32 this year and needing more rest to the knees, lower back and his manhood, has me thinking at best 75 games at catcher.  Do we really want Rort who is probably a year or year + away from being a go to guy?  Probably not.  Trading Jeffers is risky because of youth compared to Garver, more seasoned and to me Rort is still a solid #3 catcher behind these two.  Won't say no if the return is there though

    I like the Gordon move to AAA to get the reps most likely at SS/2B and not so much in the OF.  Let him play the rest of August and then in September bring him back to see how he plays those positions.  Simmons can be moved to bench player and farewell pack on the back tour for rest of the season.

    After last night, Yankees in 4 spot and Twins head to Yankee Stadium.  Missed opportunities last night with other teams losing.  Rocco's lineups are very puzzling. Too many analytic predictive models over playing guys that are more effective
