Mientkiewicz hurt

Postby Jonathan » Thu Apr 15, 2004 7:23 pm

He twisted his ankle. Pretty nasty. Was helped off the field. Anybody know anything else. I'm dying to grab Morneau. Is it time?

Great news for me since I have Mourneau, especially since he's tearing it up at AAA:

Justin Morneau went 3-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI for Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday. He's now batting .500 (14-for-28) with two home runs and 11 RBI in seven games. And he hasn't struck out yet.
As far as god is concerned, if he starts using an energy consuming kind of blower or electric blanket, I’ll kick his ass too.

4 people nationwide? Try getting in a league with more than 12 people and a corner infielder. Better yet, get in an AL only league. Morneau can be a stud. Before the season I read he's a future .300/40 HR hitter without a spot in the lineup. Now he may have a spot. I think that's interesting.

I have Morneau in a few leagues. Ka-ching!

This si also good news for LeCroy whenever he comes off the DL. As long as Minky is gone for a while (not wishing it upon him, but he's already hurt - I'm not going to hell am I?)

False Alarm. This is from RotoWorld.

Doug Mientkiewicz is listed as day-to-day with a sprained right ankle.
Justin Morneau apparently will remain in Triple-A for a little while longer. Jose Offerman will fill in at first base should Mientkiewicz miss any additional time, opening up at-bats for Michael Cuddyer and Michael Ryan.

I am one of the four people that have Mientkiewicz....You would be surprised how good he is when the league counts OBP and Slugging....I seriously hope he's not that seriously injured...he's been doing really well for me with all his walks and doubles.

Postby JOEG » Fri Apr 16, 2004 12:08 am

Actually in a points league i was starting him, he actually socres many more points due to all the singles then some of the "ok" to start 1B's that just jack boms and strikeout!

Plus i am a Twins fan and i alwasy like having a token twin.... we need him back ASAP

People waiting for Morneau to be the next Jim Thome - don't hold your breathe - the key to Twins baseball is fielding - he has a long way to go before we play him everyday...
