Well, Rondell can't play in two straight games, it seems.
And now Brian Buscher pulls up lame and the Twins have problems again at third abse.
So, what should they do?
They passed on Hill-de-brandie who is now playing third for the Padres AAA team.
They didn't go after Endsberg, who hit two homers in his first game as a Padre, immediately doubling the total hit by Twins third sackers.
The Twins, sitting with two free spots on the 40-man, and definitely in need of someone, anyone, who can either regularly DH, play left or third did just what I thought...
Well, maybe not.
They called up Tommy Watkins, Mr. Smiley Face, from the Twins minor league system. Sure, a great guy deserving of a a major league shot, but let's do it in September as a reward for years of service and other fun things.
Instead, we get a clone of Punto, Rodriguez, and maybe Tyner, Bartlett, Casilla...another slapshoter and a guy who can play all sorts of positions. No pop.
But he is the Mayor of Ft. Myers or some such.
Great. Just Great. Runners on second and third, one out, and Punto coming to the plate. Do I send up Watkins, Rodriguez or Rondell White to get me that sacrifice fly.
Looking forward to those magic moments!
