    h2oface got a reaction from Dodecahedron in Shoemaker: "Twins way screwed me up"   
    I hated the Shoemaker (and Happ) signings, and hate them even more now. But this headline is click bait, and what Shoemaker said was harmless and honest. That is his take. It very well could be the best take, and the most accurate for what happened with him. Billy Bob says it best......

    h2oface got a reaction from D.C Twins in Twins Minor League Report (8/3) Austin Martin Makes Debut   
    Bizarre first game for Martin.
    So what does Miranda have to do to get put on the roster and help the Twins? Or do they just like to see him play in St Paul? Donaldson ain't playing anyway for the last 6 games. We know Rooker can hit...... and strike out like Sano (....and Larnach 48 times in last 105 ABs). But does Rooker really have a future (Did Palka have a future? Does Sano?)
    Is there a reason the Prospect Summary isn't being updated with the new players yet?

    Huascar Ynoa to the Atlanta Braves for Jaime Garcia, Anthony Recker, and cash. Garcia to the New York Yankees from whom the Twins received Zack Littell and Dietrich Enns...... essentially traded Ynoa for Recker, Littell, Enns, and cash. All gone now..... Ynoa looking like the best of the bunch, as long as he uses his hands to pitch instead of hit walls.

    With what the Twins are doing with this team now, there is no reason to not have Refsnyder back on the Twins. Miranda, too.

    Danny Coulombe has given up a .545 batting average to the first batters he faces!?! The stat book Baldelli uses must not consider that in his decisions....

    Was it Steve sax who also couldn't throw from 2nd to 1st?
    Dick Woodson also had the yips.  He couldn't throw the ball over the plate consistently.

    Happ opens a fortune cookie to determine if he covers first on a right side grounder.

    Larnach's K %  must be rivaling, if not more, that Sano, now.
    Upon looking, last 30 games coming into this one.... 104 official ABs, 47 Ks.
