Rough Day in Twinkie Land

Had to make a mid-day post today, as some interesting (and depressing) news items have popped up:

* Francisco Liriano was was arrested on a DUI charge last night in Florida. At this point, it does not appear that it will affect his ability to make the team, but it's certainly disconcerting. Terry Ryan says the team will stand behind him.

* What does Jason Bartlett have to do to satisfy this team? Despite hitting .382 this spring, the Twins optioned him to Rochester and will apparently open the season with Juan Castro and Nick Punto platooning at shortstop. The team seems to be claiming that they want him to play some minor league games to get back up to speed after suffering a minor hamstring pull last week, but I can't imagine that he wouldn't be ready by Opening Day. Perhaps this move is setting the stage for a trade to acquire a shortstop.

Maybe Gardy will give Sierra the SS gig.

Haha, I would not be at all surprised. I was thinking maybe they'd bring back Corky Miller to fill the role.

Seriously, this is an awful move all around. Maybe he needs a few games to get back, but it seems to actually indicate that the Twins think Nick Punto or Juan Castro could start major league games. This is a joke and i'm disguisted.

Bartlett chose to go to AAA rather than the DL.
