Tuesday Twins: Everything About the Twins is Depressing, Except Kurt Suzuki (Everyone Loves Kurt Suzuki)

It's ok Vance Worley, Kurt Suzuki is here for you! - Brian Blanco

Good morning Twins fans! Here are this week's links:

  • PANIC: Byron Buxton sat out of his minor league games yesterday because of a bruised elbow. (PANIC.)
  • Despite the All-Star Game, the Twins could end up selling fewer tickets this year than they did the last year in the Metrodome. Sales are reportedly down 9%.
  • Ron Gardenhire says he would be ok with splitting catching time between Kurt Suzuki and rookie Josmil Pinto, noting "[Pinto] doesn't have to be an everyday guy[.]"
  • But everyone just freaking loves Kurt Suzuki. "I love him," Glen Perkins told ESPN1500's Phil Mackey. One unnamed teammate compared him to former backup catcher Mike Redmond.
  • The Star Tribune has a piece on Twins minor leaguer Alex Wimmers and the struggles he has faced in his professional career.
  • There is good news: May 18th, 2014, the Twins are giving away a Sid Hartman bobblehead.
