The Tigers today designated for assignment our old friend Jacque Jones. So Jones is another in a long line of ex-Twins who have had less than stellar careers once out of Minnesota. I wish him well and have to assume that someone will take a chance on him.
What is it about the ex-Twins out of Minnesota and their decline? Sure JC is doing well in Philly and Loshe might have a second life with the Cardinals but those seem to be the exception. I hope Bartlett does well in Tampa, that goes for Garza too but it seems like there is a good chance that won't happen. I haven't forgotten AJ either. I'm guessing out of the recent (2000-today) Twins he has had the best career outside of Minnesota by far. Funny that he would be the guy to pull that off.
Good luck Messir Jacque strap and happy trails.
