So far, the Twins have already tasted that sour truth with their lone acquisition of the trade season, second baseman Bret Boone, who's hitting just .195 since the July 11 trade with eight singles in 10 games.
Ryan was reluctant to discuss Boone's status, but the low-risk pickup from the Seattle Mariners could be gone by the time the team returns home from the East Coast trip on Monday if his fortunes don't turn quickly.

"Every day is an evaluation process. We need production,'' Ryan said. "Bret Boone's no different than a lot of other guys.''

Boone had a nearly two-week layoff before suiting up for the Twins, so the team has cut him some slack. But the field staff is growing impatient, and Ryan said that after Boone's first week with the club, "you can do earnest evaluation.'' So judge him starting with Detroit series (four singles, 16 at-bats, at least three misplays in the field).

Anybody still have that picture of Boone holding Gardenhire as if he was saving the season? :D:

Just like that, I already have a follow up.
The Twins might be interested in Alfonso Soriano.

Maybe they can coax Robbie Alomar out of retirement!

It would be a shame if they cut him, since that was the place he wanted to go all along. :rolleyes:

Apparently, the Twins have decided catching the ball is optional.
