The Twins' 24-year-old right fielder has shown he can hit. Now it's a question of consistency.

What? He studied film? Didn't everyone here credit Tom Brunansky? Gosh. MLB players aren't like 8-year-olds then. They figure out things themselves.

Just too bad he isn't capable of hitting 20 home runs....this team needs some more deep threats to keep the pitching in the game.....

Ben likely will increase his home run production as he matures. Seriously, how hard will it be to go from none in 2 years, to one sometime? With that poor attempt at humor, Ben has shown us good outfield play, production at the plate and on base, and his lack of arm strength has rarely cost us anything of significance. Mastroanni also brings that kind of fielding, with a bit better power. Josh W. hits for power, I can live with his average and strikeouts, but his fielding is so far below standards that it negates his power. Trade him (Josh W)now, while we might still get something out of the deal.

The kid is a spark plug. He's young and fun even if he does make mistakes like oversliding second base last night.

I like both Revere and Span in the outfield. I can live with J. willingham's less than average fielding because of his power. He is alot like Killebrew. Harmon was never considered a particular adept fielder, but having him come to bat 4-5 times a game and possibly change the outcome with one swing more than made up for any deficit in his fielding abilities. I would not, unless its for a kings ransom ( as in 2 PROVEN starting top of the rotation starting pitchers) trade Willingham.

And a few short months ago the Twins brought in Clete Thomas and then Erik Komatsu to play for Revere when they sent him back to AAA. Never understand those two moves....

Does he remind anyone else of a young Tony Gwynn?
