Twins Homers....

Postby dkakridas » Thu Mar 31, 2005 2:43 am

Where does Mike Restovich end up? Will he be traded? He is out of options and the kid does not deseve to be jerked around any longer. He is Tim Salmon-lite and has a chance to put up some numbers if given the chance?

Will it be Tampa? KC?

I have a feeling about this guy this year. He is 26 and entering his breakout years. It's now or never for the big corner OF....

The Twins continue to talk as if Michael Restovich will be traded.
Restovich, who is out of options, would have to pass through waivers in order for Minnesota to send him to the minors. Because of that, they may trade him rather than risk losing him for nothing. ''It's a situation where we have to do what is best for the ballclub,'' manager Ron Gardenhire said. ''It's also a situation where he may need to go somewhere else where he can play every day.''

Yeah, wiavers or a trade. The idiotic, knee-jerk, complete-lack-of-market-sense Jaun Castro mulit-year signing is coming back to haunt them. The man with the career .269 on-base percentage has committed seven errors this spring, and if he had wisely been given just a non-roster spring training invite, he'd have been sent home already. But because the Twins have to pay him a million dollars a season for two years, he'll make the team, even though he's just a worn down, 33 year old version of Nick Punto, who will also be on the roster.

So, instead of carrying a fifth outfielder, it looks like the Twins are going with not one, but two futility infielders because they're too stubborn to admit what anyone with an IQ over 70 knew, that you don't sign a 33-year old career back-up shortstop to a multi-year deal or give him anything north of veteran's minimum. On top of that, there is another Punto/Castro clone in Augie Ojeda that will start the season in AAA.

Woulda been nice to keep Restro. He's got a ton of power. Won't ever hit for a respectable average, but could develop into a player worth having, unlike a 33-year old Castro.

The Rays picked up Restovich off waivers today, so I guess that answers your question.
