Bush addresses Twins roster moves

Posted at 10:04 AM on June 16, 2006 by David Zingler (2 Comments)

In between a trip to Baghdad and those pesky news conferences, President Bush took time out to address the Twins infield situation:

“A wonderful moment in the history of liberty occurred quietly in Minnesota this week. The left side of the Twins infield was liberated from the brutal regimes of Batista and Castro.

"Jason Bartlett offers a new hope for Twins fans and while the third base situation is still unsettled, the franchise has banished Batista and his unnatural batting stance. It is important that the Twins ‘stay the course’ and not ‘cut and run’ by signing a stop-gap veteran like Bret Boone.”
