Site Update

10 Jul

also available at www.SethSpeaks.net

Hi everyone, I just wanted to put out a quick update on this site and why I haven’t posted much the last couple of days. First of all, life and work are rather hectic right now. And, as the Twins Geek alluded to yesterday, I too am frantically attempting to do my part in putting together an e-book that you will be able to purchase and review starting next Monday. Seriously, I am very excited about what we are writing and I think that you will really enjoy it. It’s been a ton of work in a very short time, and a process full of lessons learned, but an end result that each of the bloggers involved should and will be very proud of. So again, please be sure to stop back on Monday morning to find out much more.

I will be posting another StarTribune.com/yourvoices blog tomorrow sometime. After chatting with Doogie Wolfson, we may do a tandem blog off of each others which should be good, so check out for that.

 

As you know, the Twins were swept by the Yankees. I ranted yesterday; they lost again, no need to rehash!

 

I want to point out a few highlights from Wednesday and Thursday’s minor league games:

·         Jason Pridie – 3-5, 2B (16), HR (5)

Minor League Notes –

·         Wang-Wei Lin broke his jaw diving to make a catch .He had surgery and is likely out for the season which is too bad because he got off to a great start.

·         Curtis Leavitt was released from the Beloit roster to make room for Twins 2nd round pick, Billy Bullock.

 

Anything else going on? Have a great Friday

    I don’t think I’ve seen Aaron Hicks’ name in any highlight or comment about his hitting/play yet. I take it he’s not doing much yet.

    I still believe Hughes should have been on the Twins bench all year (I know he got hurt at some point)(LF, rh DH, fill in at 3B). I also don’t get continuing to play him at 3B. It’s about 100% certain, barring injury, he won’t be the 3B next year, or any time soon.

    Slama continues to sit in AA for no reason. I don’t get it. It’s not like AAA is stacked with pitchers.

    Any college player should be in A ball, not lower. Dominating HS kids and foreign youngsters teaches them nothing.

    I’m hopeful at some point they call up Tolleson and/or Casilla. I think one/both should be up with the Twins and playing. Tolbert and Punto just aren’t going to be anything mroe than terrible (Tolbert) to mediocre (Punto). Casilla is definitely better than AAA pitchers. But I’m not sure he is a MLB player – I think he can be, but I don’t know he will be.

    Nice to see Fox seems to be recovered. Very good to have another prospect.

    In 15 games, Hicks’ line is 220 .375 .320. Of course, some people wailed about him spending more time in EST…

    The next time Casilla sees a major league field, it will not be in a Twins uniform. He’s trade bait at best now, I believe.

    I agree on Casilla, but I’d rather he was up than Tolbert.

    And, I don’t think spending more time in EST would help Hicks. And neither does nearly every team in MLB (many of whom have developed more good hitters than the Twins lately) as Hicks was one of three (maybe 4, I’d have to double check) players drafted in the early rounds last year not playing in games (that was healthy) when the year started.

    Danny Rams and Tyler Ladendorf were both promoted to Beloit…. hopefully they don’t get the losing bug that has plaged beloit all season….
