Good morning Twins fans! We're over the "hump" of the season. Here are some PEDs-free links to enjoy*:

  • 1500ESPN's Brandon Warne talks about a possible swap between two other Canadians on the Twins roster.
  • Yahoo!'s Darin McGilvra argues Pedro "P-Flo" Florimon is the best defensive shortstop in the league--and the defensive metrics apparently agree.
  • If you are wondering about the Twins recently demoted rookie--Oswaldo Arcia--here is Gardy's take: "I like to have his bat up here... but you could tell it was in his head. He was missing pitches by a foot, and wasn't seeing the ball." Read what else Gardy had to say.
