A new shortstop and new uniforms
Not sure who is out there but hopefully someone is! Anyway, for those that don’t know my name is Joe and I’ve been a Twins fan since I was six years old. I hope you find this blog entertaining and thought provoking. Let’s get started shall we?!
In my first entry I’d like to discuss how the Twins acquired a new shortstop for the 2010 season and what I think of the acquisition and also the news that was announced today, that they are going to be wearing new uniforms next year.
The Twins have acquired shortstop J.J. Hardy from the Milwaukee Brewers for outfielder Carlos Gomez. I am excited about this acquisition. It potentially fills a very big need for the Twins, a right-handed bat with good power and an infielder at a position of need. It thins out the Twins depth in the outfield but they still have four guys who are capable of playing out there everyday and you can only have three out there everyday. Gomez is very talented but he gets way too excited when he’s at the plate a lot of the time which causes him to swing wildly and strike out a lot. He has the potential to be special at the plate if he ever calms down his approach. He is an excellent defender as well.
