Mike Sweeney Released

15 posts in this topic

I said it before, maybe a decent pick up for the Twins. Provides a little veteran leadership, and toss in some pinch hits and a few days at DH, would be a great fit here.

At this time of the year, released for a reason.

Often injured- he was replaced by Frank Thomas. Wouldn't hurt, you know, as awful as it was- he even breaks up no hitters. Wouldn't be any worse than hanging onto Rondell White for 2 seasons.

It seems to me that we had another Twins killer on our team earlier this year, and that didn't work out too well..My opinion is that he is done and that is why Oakland got rid of him.

Sad to see. Sweeney was a fearsome hitter before his body started to disintegrate. One of those guys (like Thome now!) that I loved to watch hit & hated to see swing a bat against the Twins.

Would he be ready to go this season? I heard he would need surgery, and might need a season to recover.

    • Don't worry Chuck......PF has your back.
    • It's just sooooooooo easy.
    • Speaking of Russia:   A timeline of recent events. 11/28/16 - " Trump’s campaign took him up on it in March. From those meetings, Nunes grew close with retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump hand who has just been nominated to be the president-elect’s national security adviser. 2/13/- 1) Flynn gets recorded by Intel agencies, we know he discussed sanctions and 2) it was part of a "Peace Plan" involving Cohen, Sater and a Ukranian named Alex Oronov 3) who is now dead. 2/16 - Flynn faces no FBI charges Source 3/20 - Comey announces FBI investigation into members of Trump campaign. Repubs, including Nunes, spend a great deal of it concerned about Unmasking of Flynn from incidental collection. Source 3/22 - Nunes spends his week freaking out about possible incidental collection he's been told about from an unknown source, immediately warns Trump. Source Now to go back to January, Who happened to be at the Breakfast with Flynn in January involving Turkey? Nunes. Where did it happen? Trump hotel in Washington. Source  3/22 - The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday requested documents related to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn from the White House, FBI, Department of Defense and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Source 3/22 - Schiff now claims there's "More than circumstantial evidence of Collusion (Unrelated to Nunes new info) Source 3/23 - CNN story drops that "The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings ." Source 3/24 - Nunes cancels 2nd open hearing with Intel Committee, seemingly for no reason. Source - Albeit today we learned Sally Yates was going to talk about Michael Flynn at this hearing. 3/24 - Manafort, Stone and Page all more or less simultaneously agree to speak with Intel Committee. Source 3/24 - National Inquirer (owned by Trump's friend) very oddly throws Flynn under the bus. Source 3/25 - Claim that Flynn may have cut a deal Source It seems Flynn may be spilling the beans here, which would not bode well for Trump.   Also I didn't even get to today's news about Kushner and Russia.     What do we know VEB? It ran a spy ring in New York City. Here's another fun coincidence:     Prosecuted by our now removed district attorney.
