Yes, and no walks. Is it too early to hope he's the real deal? (Gardy and Anderson - don't mess this kid up!)

It's amazing how a guy who "wasn't ready" a month ago is now the toast of the Twins. You can fool some of the people, not this rube.

"wasn't ready a month ago." Sorry. That second guess is just plain tattered. When the Twins were methodical with Parmelee, Dozier, Hicks, Slama, Bemson, Plouffe, Valencia and a cast of dozens, we heard the same thing. And where are those All-Stars now? Yeah, this franchise is probably too cautious SOMETIMES, but the fantasy league GMs are always lamping onto the "free Randy Ruiz" line, and they are always wrong.

If you were paying attention, the kid wasn 't ready a month ago. ONe good start, one bad start (which I admit is better than what some of the Twins starters have been doing). They wanted to see him put a string of good starts together. That's what he did, and that's when they brought him up. Last thing you need is to get the kid to come up too soon and get his confidence shot by unsteady play. Lord knows we've seen enough of that the last couple of seasons.
