  1. Exactly. now when he needs to get back to that. Either the Twins hitting coaches or those back at St. Paul need to get him back in that groove.
  2. If you put Enlow on the major league 60 Day IL, he will be considered on the active roster and will receive service time and major league pay. I don't see the Twins doing that.
  3. Except after the Rule 5 draft, Palacios might be gone. That may be what they are protecting against.
  4. The reason teams don't take their own inititive on training players offseason is that they don't want to open the beehive and allow the yankees to step in and blow everybody away spending money to develop players. I'm sure teams are restricted to keep the playing field level, so any new approaches would have to be agreed upon by all the teams.
  5. Another shortstop the Twins developed comes to mind. Jay Bell. But they trades him to Cleveland for Bert Blyleven. Bell became a very good player after Cleveland traded him to Pittsburg.
  6. My question is, what happens to minor league spring training if MLB spring training gets moved back into the time slot when minor leaguers would be using those facilities for spring training?
  7. in response to this post, I don't believe the Twins will put Enlow on the 60-day IL. If they did they would have to put him on the 26 man roster first, then put him on IR, where he would collect service time as a major leaguer. I don't thin the Twins will do that. He will remain on somebody's 7-day IL list in the minors for the season.
  8. A lefthander throwing 97 is a great asset, especially with secondaries to back it up. This should be interesting to follow.
  9. That's a pretty good haul of present and future pieces for a guy that is crowded out of playing time for the Twins. I believe Arraez is a pretty valuable trade piece.
  10. As for putting Enlow on the 60-Day IL list, that is only possible if he is first promoted to the active roster, then placed on the IL. In that case he will earn major league service time while on the IL. I do not forsee the Twins doing that. Otherwise, he will just be on the minor league 7-day list.
  11. And thus, what is the chance that Palacios ends up being a Rule 5 pick by someone like the Pirates or the Orioles?
  12. Palacious has been around for quite a while, and seems to get pretty good marks for defense. He has pretty decent batting stats, not outrageous strikeout numbers, decent walk numbers and even steals a few bases. So what does he have left to prove before he is a legitimate prospect to play shortstop for the big club, because he sure doesn't get much mention for that possibility?
  13. Yes, Herb. Without Herb, I would not have been an every day with my transistor radio glued to my ear fan. Thanks for the memories.
