Go Twins for seventy one wins!!

How many people even make it that far? Good luck, sir.

De Vries might fit in well here as Garza’s, Bartletts, Ramosses, Slowey’s and Hardy’s didn’t or wouldn’t. After Garza & Bartletts were traded away attendance grew, now that Mr Delmon’s gone, attendance’s down. Obviously. Is Glavine out there for à comeback?

One of the positives of this miserable year is hearing success stories like Devries. Obviously not a front of the rotation guy but hopefully he can stick for a season or two.
The numbers against a person making the ML are so astronomical. I believe its approx .

Seldom is there so little pressure on a player making his debut.

Hope he can sustain his AAA numbers this year. That would be just fine for this rotation.

That’ll be worth a few extra hundred dollars this season.

Both Walters and Diamond have pitched very well indeed this year. Diamond in particular has been a complete surprise, after a dismal performance in 2011.

Bringing up a 27 year old undrafted pitcher. Nice that he’s a local kid, and I wish him luck. Just give us 6 innings while allowing 4 or less runs, and we’ll take it.
