    Park still deserved to make the team with how good of a spring he had. Wonder if another team will trade for him.

    The Twins probably care more about developing Vargas for their future rather than accomodating a player that no other team wanted who had a hot ST.

    Solution to their problems: tell Mauer that he's a catcher again. Vargas and Park split 1B/DH.

    I think he's had so many difficulties with concussions that it's basically 1B/DH or retirement. Catching isn't an option.

    Ah, that makes sense. I didn't remember what his injuries were.

    I thought it was chronic leg stuff? Either way

    Could be leg injuries on top of it but he blurred vision for two years after a concussion in 2013.

    Looks like concussions is the party line and chronic leg issues is the irresponsible speculation.

    You can't really make a guy play catcher.

    Remember when he was a sure-fire HOFer? Unfortunately it's been hard to watch over the past 3 years.

    There's a picture of the 10 bone spurs they removed from Walker's ankle this offseason. That's kinda nasty.

    Jesus. That first one is massive. I can definitely see how having those in your ankle could affect your delivery.

    Weird. I feel bad for Shawn Kelly. Some guys just get trapped in a certain archetype I guess.
