Twins' Hicks gets a night off to watch

KANSAS CITY, MO. – It might not look like it when he strikes out to end an inning, when he glares into space as he yanks the batting gloves from his hands and tosses them toward the dugout. But his first week in the majors, the great hitting drought of 2013, has been a lot of fun for Aaron Hicks.

Does it really matter who they put out there??

Hicks needs to just settle down and play the game....easy for me to say, but it is what it is.....he will be OK, as long as he just quits pressing.......

Escobar played centerfield in spring training and is hitting better than anyone. The only Twin that is a major league ss on this team is Carrol, so you have two solutions to two of the Twins problems if the Twins want to win as many games as they can this year now that they have improved their pitching staff instead of develop players on the major league team instead of in the minor leaugues.

People need to take things for what they are. I read a lot of unreasonably optimistic things about Hicks for this season yet he's had only one good year in the minors since rookie ball in '08. I wouldn't term what he did in New Britain last season as being anything more than pretty good. I saw him play there and sort of regained faith in the guy as a result. However, he is not a major league ready hitter. They like that he is athletic, has great range and can walk. The guy simply isn't ready as a hitter. I wonder if he'll ever be? Those old enough to remember Brant Alyea might do well to advise people about being sold on a fast start. What Hicks did in ST is meaningless. We can't audition this kid much longer. I'd say he is sent down before the month is done
