Gibson, Bane, baumgartner, Gasser: 4 peas in a pod, no major league talent. However, we don't need high priced free agents. We have help in the minors, right Terry?

Wasn't Gibson supposed to be the Twin's savior? Maybe now it will be May's, or Meyer's, or Sano? Ryan's list of failed prospects is growing almost as fast as the Pohlad's bank account.

You forgot Toby Nivens.

Sano doesn't play for 4 games? Typical Twins Way. Get rid of Gardy and all these bums managing the minor leagues too.

Just noticed that Yasiel Puig hit a walk-off homer in the 11th for the Dodgers today. He ran around the bases and slid into home with the team around. How many games would the Twins suspend him? At least 10 I bet.

Puig. Heck, Danny Valencia went berserk when he got a walk-off single. That was funny.

refreshing to see that there are still some people posting who know nothing about baseball. gibson has made all of 4...5 starts? yeah, let's give up on him. frank viola was 4-10 with a 5.21 ERA in his first season in the majors. can't believe the twins didn't give up on him. would have made it easier for you to get your ice fishing gear ready...with no twins playoffs in 1987.

I thought a four game suspension was a bit of overkill.

Once again, Gardy insists on playing Doumit in right field? What's the purpose? Are we somehow short of outfielders? Must we carry 3 catchers, then use one in right field who has shown again and again he can't play the outfield? The ball he butchered today was a fairly routine catch. He turned it into a circus when he unnecessarily slid for the catch, then watched helplessly as it hit him smack in the glove and bounced away. It looked like a little league play. Fortunately, that gaffe didn't hurt us. But it was just another example that DOUMIT CANNOT PLAY THE OUTFIELD!!! DH him or use him at catcher,or bench him, but don't run him out to play the field again. This is a good fielding team. No reason whatsoever to make that into a question mark by playing Doumit in right.

The Sano suspension was for standing at home plate and admiring his blast AND blowing off his manager when talked to about it.
