Whatever Happened to Twins Baseball and Carlos Gomez Simply Being Carlos Gomez

The poor route to the ball was exacerbated by Carlos forgetting to put his throwing arm through his jersey sleeve.  Again.

Not a whole hell of a lot going on, but here are some Twins and Twins-related links gathered from the internets:

  • LEN3 has a nice story in the Strib about the demise of "Twins Baseball." Although the obvious answer is that it was killed by an errant Trevor Plouffe throw from short to first, LaVelle goes through the trouble of talking to people inside and out of the organization to see what's going on. Money item is the graf about those "close" to Justin Morneau who said he was surprised at the lack of early BP and "work ethic" he saw on a rehab stint in Rochester. Red Wings' manager Tom Nieto disputes the story. My guess is we'll be hearing more about this.
  • On a similar note, Buster Olney thinks one team in MLB has the most to overcome as far as rebuilding in 2012. You'll never guess who. (Insider article, so if any of you turkeys have access and want to discuss in the comments, go nuts.)
  • Courtesy Phil Mackey, here's your Twins health update: Baker, Liriano and Duensing were all slated to throw off the mound yesterday in hopes of coming back before the season is done; Morneau is traveling with the team to Detroit barring a setback; Span doesn't sound like he's coming back before 2012; Casilla is in Florida; and Nishioka will be back this weekend.
  • As noted by SB Nation's Brew Crew Ball, former Twin Carlos Gomez shows Delmon Young that he's not the only one who can take an absolutely baffling route to track down a ball.

If there are any health updates throughout the day, we'll break into your regular programming to let you know. Otherwise, ready your Kevin Slowey hipster jokes for this evening's game and be well.
