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.”

I liked Castro...although he really is a utility player, and not your everyday shortstop. Batista obviously didn't live up to potential...but why in the world is Rondell White still getting any playing time at all? Who cares if he can hit the ball really hard right to's time to stop listening to him say that he "thinks it's all going to turn around soon" cause soon came and went in mid May. I cringe everytime he comes to bat, because I know if he hits a line drive right to the shortstop (very high probabbility)...Gardy will think he somehow just earned another week in the lineup.

I don't know why I never put two and two together and realized we had an all-20th century Cuban president left infield! All we needed is Robert Machado as our backup catcher.
