Links of the Weekend for 5/19-20/06

by Intern Sharkey

Ahoy! It’s time for another edition of the weekend links, rocking out to Broken Boy Soldiers.

  • Of course, the big news from the last few days was Kyle Lohse’s demotion. He has accepted his demotion; the Mets are a possible (likely?) trade destination. Lohse still has a glimmer of value, and the Mets are checking their watches for the end of Lima Time. It’s doubtful the Twins will be overly picky with the returns. Also in that article: the Tony Batista Experience may be coming to an end sooner than later.

  • As Steven Colbert would say, “It’s more like re-arranging the deck chairs on the Hindenburg!”

  • Seth has all the answers. Andy Wink has a few ideas of his own.

  • Boof Bonsor, the third piece of the Pierzynski deal, will start on Sunday. Jesse of Twinkie Town gets you up to speed on the man here.

  • -The other two pieces of the AJ trade pitched well yesterday, breaking the losing streak. Option K racked up another 5 strikeouts in five innings. He only allowed two hits, but his control was spotty with three walks and multiple bounced balls. I noticed Mauer calling a lot of 3-ball change-ups; I wonder if it will take a few starts for Liriano and Chairman Mau(er) to get a feel for each other. Batista looks to be making a mad scramble to hang onto his job.

  • Looking ahead to 2007’s rotation of Santana/Liriano/Baker/Bonsor/???, the role of “???” could be played by Matt Garza, last year’s first round pick who made his AAA debut the other day. It was, as they say, a decent start. I caught an interview with Paul Molitor Friday afternoon on KFAN, and he mentioned that Garza could get a possible cup of coffee after the rosters expand in September. Drew Ely has more here.

  • Former Not-So-Little Leaguer Danny Almonte may not be all grown up, but he’s sure trying.

  • As you may have heard, outdoor baseball is coming for the 2010 season. Just awesome. As always, Shane is your go-to man for the stadia; by the time you read this, chances are the bill will be on the Governor’s desk.

  • And finally, I present the least classy thing I have ever seen.

Peace out kids; see you next week.

Right on cue, Batista turns a nice double play and hits a grand slam.

But, at least it's refreshing to know that management isn't singing his praises.

Late stadium update: the reconciled bill has passed the House, and is moving to the Senate. It should be done some time within the next few hours (Senators are pulling a late one).

Even later update: it's through both houses.

Garza's AA debut, you mean?
