I hardly ever wish harm/injury to a man...but I have no problem hoping the Twins suffer. (I know that's somewhat conflicting...but I'm sure you get the drift.)

Looks like Boof is quickly approaching "Bust" status.

Too bad for him.

They have plenty of young arms to replace him however.

Boof sucks.

I'd rather have him healthy and pitching poorly for the Twins.

I don't really think they do. They rotation is "set" but their bullpen is pretty lacking and his role would have been a late inning guy where the team really needs help.

Rumors have them signing Juan Cruz, I don't know if that is still floating around but it was a week ago.

Bonser was slated to be a long arm out of the pen anyways, but I still think their bullpen is pretty decent (not as strong as years past), and I didn't see him getting many innings on either end unless there was an injury.

He would have been a good insurance option, but not much else.

I think it's a minor deal, but he could be out 6-8 weeks or so. His problem I think is mostly between his ears imho.

Tears in his labrum and rotator cuff are minor? I guess - he could be dead.

Gardy was on XM today and he said that Boof was most likely done for the year.

Ya think? He changes his given name from "John" to "Boof." I'd say one of his rivets has popped out.

Imagine if your daughter (if you have one) brings home her new boyfriend that she's been gushing about and says "mom, dad, I'd like you to meet Boof. His name was John, but he spent money to ask a judge to change it."

I'd get a gun.

Boof is terrible, this doesn't help us, it hurts us.

Probably, since the Twins seem to just bring in players from the Minnesota Twins store as DJ called it and play effectively.
