Look at that, would ya? A REAL outfield!
Yes, I know, Josh Willingham and Oswaldo Arcia won’t make anyone’s list of ‘best defensive outfielders’ in MLB baseball, but at least neither of them have spent the past 10 years making a living playing shortstop.
More importantly, we’d like to hope that the arrival of Willingham and Arcia will mean fewer games where the Twins try to get by on 3-4 hits for an entire game.
I’ve got plans for the day, so I won’t be around to see or hear the game, but let’s hope our guys can put the weekend road sweep behind them and start a little winning streak of their own. – JC

yeah we have definitely played better baseball on Memorial Day..
The biggest news for today is that Hicks is officially dropping the switch hitting label – he is going to be a righty only. Given his split stats, that’s probably a good idea.
