Default The latest no-name, annoying Twin callup:

Jason Repko.

Seriously, what magic, slime-covered rock do the Twinkies own that these players keep crawling out from under?!?!?

I will never feel comfortable with a Twin injury again!

I don't know how big a prospect he was, but I know he was very mediocre with the Dodgers. Maybe somehow the Twins manage to get the best out of these punks or just plain lucky?

The last name doesn't sit well with me, either.

Perhaps he isn't even human.

Considering that my English name is Jason, this irks me. Why couldn't the Sox have a Jason of their own?

They should. Maybe you could drive in more runs off of these Orioles pitchers with ERAs in the fours and fives than the guys on the team right now!
