How the Twins killed Oswaldo Arcia as a prospect


There we go again, Mr. Arcia. No sample size is too small for the Twins to send you down to AAA, again. You see, we don't want you to keep your relaxed stance at the plate that's been a key to all your success to date. We want you to know that you are always one bad swing away from being demoted.

Never mind that for the first 23 games since your last recall, you batted .293 (second on the team)m had an OBP of .343 (2nd on the team) or slugged .394 (4th on the team). Forget that you cut down on your k-rate to 20%, just 1.6% more than Joe Mauer and better than Arcia, Willingham, Parmalee or Thomas.

Because you have had a 6-game stretch, and in Twinkie Town, that earns you a ticket to Rochester.

Bon Voyage, Mr. Arcia.
