L-Rod to TR: "Hey! Over Here!"

Yahoo! Sports:
Luis Rodriguez is coming off a fantastic Winter League season, where he led his Venezuelan team to the Caribbean World Series title. The infielder batted .310 for his team during the tournament, and was named the third baseman on the Series All-Star team. Last season, he batted .269 in 76 games for the Twins, making his Major League debut as a defensive replacement against Milwaulkee on May 21.

Nice job, L-Rod!

I don't know about you folks, but I've been impressed by this kid pretty consistently since he first came up. He'd sit the bench for a week or more, and then come out and give us good at-bats and excellent play in the field and on the bases.

frightwig sounded off...

I'd like to see him on the team, rather than spending $690K or whatever to keep Punto. As it is, Luis is probably out of luck, stashed at AAA waiting for Punto or Castro to get hurt, or for Bartlett to get demoted to Rochester again.
