Let's see if we can generate some good discussion among the 4 or 5 us here. What should the Twins do in the next couple weeks? Who should they move? What should they expect to get in return? Have they written off this season? Is it important that their AAA affiliate try and win a championship for the Organization?
Twins are in the throes of another round of nasty injuries that have upset them, the Red Wings and Rock Cats. It has been particularly unsettling with the pitching staffs. This seems to be an annual thing with the Twins...like the arrival of the flu every year.
Sano will not play at all this year. That sets plans back a full season. He was targeted for AAA this year and hopefully the big club in 2015. Not going to happen. Santana developed OTOH a lot faster than expected....but now he's hurt. Hopefully he will be back in action after the ASG.
Florimon regressed badly. Here in Rochester he is recovering somewhat. His hitting has improved slightly. His 'd' has been adequate but hardly spectacular.
Colabello, Arcia and Parmelee have all endured prolonged dry spells. Are they collectively still in the long range plans of the Twins?
Willingham is sure to be gone. Morales will probably go (but I wish the Twins would retain him because they will never get any value for him outside of unproven draft picks or class A prospects/suspects.
If they move Suzuki...they should immediately go see a shrink.
Nunez? Might go. Fuld? Might go. (but who plays CF?.....Span? Revere? Mastroianni? Gomez? LOL LOL Brian!!!!)
As for pitching, I honestly don't know where to start so I'll leave that to you guys. There are so many holes it makes Swiss Cheese look like Velveeta.
