Giggle. Right. Here's a question: when you sit down one-on-one with someone, do you know who else seems like a good guy?
A: Bad guys.
Q: And when you sit down one-on-one with someone, do you know who seems like a bad guy?
A: Blatantly stupid bad guys.
So I think we can surmise that Jose Mijares isn't blatantly stupid, which is encouraging news given his actions since he joined the Twins:
- He screwed up his visa for spring training last year, Twinsfest this year and now spring training this year
- He showed up so obscenely overweight that he cost himself a spot on the 25-man roster for Opening Day
- He walked out on his winter league team last year, and when he returned his manager left him off the playoff roster even though he was sporting a 1.40 ERA
- And of course he incited his own teammate to charge him from the batters box during a critical pennant race game.
Looks like the Twins have their Jabba the Hut. Or will, once he gets his visa.
