  1. I am looking forward to September callups. I hope they give Joe Benson a look. I want some options for next year, particularly if Cuddy leaves.

    who else needs to come up for some fall java?

  2. from CBSSports.com

    Slama to have elbow checked: Twins RP Anthony Slama was sent to Minnesota on Wednesday to have his elbow examined, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Slama, who was optioned to Triple-A Rochester in early June, hasn't pitched since July 1 because of the ailing elbow.

    from Joe C today:

    * Kyle Gibson, the Twins top pitching prospect, is seeing the team's doctors today in Minneapolis. At some point, we'll get an update on his right elbow, and there are a lot of people pulling for him.

    The other day, he returned a call from me and left a message, starting with, "Mr. Christensen...," and apologizing for not having more to say until he sees the doctors. What a classy young man.

    1. Maybe we can get Hank Jr to rerecord "Family Tradition" as "Franchise Tradition" next time Vikes are on MNF.
