When the Twins first scouted Chris Parmelee, he was the center fielder for Chino Hills (Calif.) High School. That also was the last time Parmelee played that position.

This guy couldn't play CF on my D softball team. Let'a remember, that great diving catch he made in right center the other night? Great catch, but it was a "Jim Edmonds" great catch: A diving catch on a ball that anybody else would have been camped under. No range.

You know, I've listened to guys criticize Gardy for playing favorites and throwing guys under the bus for a couple of years now and I have really never paid much attention. But now...I see. The other day when Arcia misplayed a fly ball in right, Gardy went on to publicly state that Arcia needs to work on all parts of his game, blah blah blah. And now he's dishing out praises to Parmelee? Because, in Gardy's words "he catches everything he gets to?" Come on!!! There are a lot of guys who can catch everything they get to! And Gardy is seriously thinking about putting the lumbering Parmelee in center field?? Yes, I think it is time for a change....

Guy is hitting .214 and "isn't worried about it"? What's with this attitude? SOMEBODY better get worried about it. Bring someone else up who can play. Shouldn't be tolerated, and that's the message that needs to be sent. Hicks and Parms need to go down.

Instead of getting ready for center field, Parmalee should be getting ready for a trip to the minors. He has never been able to hit at the major league level and, I am afraid, never will be. Please....please....let's not have him the viable first baseman if they trade Morneau.
